    as with literally every time i consume anything truffautian, watching this with robert lachenay's commentary was absurdly inspiring in a really specifically useful way to a script i'm writing??

    anyway, some things i learned/want to remember:

    - truffaut:balzac is me:truffaut aka lachenay started reading balzac just so he'd have something to talk to truffaut about because as a 13 year old he read THE LILY OF THE VALLEY and would not shut up about how a guy kisses a woman's…

    i never knew either of my grandfathers (my paternal one died when my father was four years old, my maternal one died when i was a baby) but whenever i think of my maternal grandfather, the image in my mind is of him sitting on a riding lawnmower wearing a big white hat, mowing his tiny front yard in central new york. all i know about him are stories, and even when my mom tells stories about him from her…

    i am simply thinking about:

    3) lady gaga really hamming it up sucking on a spoon she used to stir her coffee

    so silly, somehow adam driver is the least unhinged person…

    maurice is one of my favorite films because it isn't afraid to exist within duplicities. it is delicate and messy, heartbreaking and joyous, precise and passionate. i love every second.

    something i noticed on this viewing is the film's theme of what is natural vs. what is unnatural. maurice is constantly surrounded by plants, greenery, and other parts of nature; for example when he and clive lie in the field together, it is a moment when both characters are doing…
