Long Play

Relationship movies as romantic placebo? Yeah, I do that.

Last night? “Chasing Amy”. After knowing the community more during the 14 years since seeing it, it finally made some sense. Tonight? “Before Sunset” (as referenced earlier); second viewing, first since reviewing “Before Sunrise”. It’s better the second time. Also, “Lost In Translation”, because it’s difficult.

Actually, all three movies are difficult, presenting the difficulty in relationships, showing the different colors. Lacking any actual relationships, I get what I can wherever it is. Relationships are difficult, notoriously. Movies less so; more easily consumed. Both leave a complex taste, but a movie must be replayed. Each day in a real relationship leaves different notes, and is fresh or sour depending on how it’s drunk. I have no drinking buddies, so, movies as placebo.
