    due to numerous rentals at blockbuster with my dad and brothers until we bought the dvd trilogy at best buy, i used to say this was my favorite movie and that matt damon was my favorite actor probably up until i was 17 years old and saw more than 15 movies. returning to it, even when it's doing too much and explaining too little, this trilogy under feels so stylistically consistent and distinct, bleakly tactical but soulful. the jason bourne…

    found this movie ticket on the ground in my childhood closet — saw this in theaters with my friend kyra and acted like i was, at 14, way too sophisticated to be there. same school year i read all the twilight books as “teen girl research,” purely from a sociological standpoint. absolutely mortified to be a teen girl.

    kiki’s a country witch who re-pots herself in a bustling metropolis. so many beautiful themes and truths of life woven across this gorgeously wrought story. reminds me that living is putting yourself out there, and home is where you make it, even when it’s cold and miserable. people pick each other up because they’ve been low before. so much of pushing yourself across the threshold is learning what puts the wind in your sails. very very nice. 

    people may say it’s slight, but also isn’t life? broad swaths of my life have been just about finding my footing, and i can’t even fly.
