    First Abbas Kiarostami film, I’ve seen. Really loved it in its simplicity and minimalism. Some of my favorite films, are films in which seemingly nothing yet everything happens at once.

    This is a perfect example of that: it’s just 10 different vignettes of a woman picking up different passengers, through their conversations we learn more about her as well as her passengers.

    I've seen Schindler's List three times in my lifetime. But it was…

    Rewatched for class.

    -The most terrible nightmare I ever had. It's the most horrible dream I ever had. 
    -It's okay, it's okay now. Really. 
    -I dreamed that I, that I killed you and Danny. But I didn't just kill ya. I cut you up in little pieces. Oh my God. I must be losing my mind.

    I get so pissed off whenever people call Shelley Duvall’s performance in The Shining bad. Her Wendy is one of my favorite horror heroines…
