~ Before Sunrise ~

„I believe if there’s any kind of God it wouldn’t be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. If there’s any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone, sharing something. I know, it’s almost impossible to succeed, but who cares, really? The answer must be in the attempt.”

„When you talked earlier about after a few years how a couple would begin to hate each other by anticipating their reactions or getting tired of their mannerisms -I think it would be the opposite for me. I think I can really fall in love when I know everything about someone-the way he’s going to part his hair, which shirt he’s going to wear that day, knowing the exact story he’d tell in a given situation. I’m sure that’s when I know I’m really in love.”

~ Distopia (im)perfectă ~

Equilibrium și Nineteen Eighty Four: două distopii care au la bază, în esență, același rău suprem – dezumanizarea.

Iată ce spune O’Brien, un membru al partidului conducător din cartea 1984, pe când îl torturau pe Winston :

”What happens to you here is forever. We shall crush you down to the point from which there is no coming back. Things will happen to you from which you could never recover, if you lived a hundred years. Never again will you be capable of ordinary human feeling. Everything will be dead inside you. Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship, or joy of living, or laughter, or curiosity, or courage, or integrity. You will be hollow.”

Pentru universul lui Orwell, nu mai există speranță, e distopia perfectă… Bine că în lumea din Equilibrium există însă un Preston…

” And suddenly it happens. Something clicks. And you know that things are going to change. They’ve changed already. And they’ll never be the same again. Never. And when it happens, you know…..
You feel it. And then you try to remember at what point it all began. And you discover it started before you thought. Long before and it’s at that moment you realize THINGS HAPPEN ONLY ONCE. And no matter how hard you try you’ll never feel the same again. You’ll never again feel you’re three meters above the sky”

~ Day 23 ~

Ia te uită: a sosit și ziua cu numărul 23! Dacă nu aș fi văzut un anume film acum ceva timp, probabil că nu mi s-ar fi părut nimic special la numărul acesta, având în vedere că nu are vreo însemnătate specială pentru mine.

Dar…am văzut filmul, The Number 23 și de atunci am început și eu să văd acest număr…sau să îl caut…mai peste tot. Cam ciudat și nebunesc, I know, dar încă mai fac asta, recunosc – drept dovadă, postarea de azi.

În afară de faptul că am rămas cu această manie de a vedea / căuta acest număr peste tot, filmul m-a surprins într-un mod plăcut datorită actorului principal – Jim Carrey. Eu nu am văzut decât filme de comedie cu acesta, așa că m-a impresionat mult rolul lui!

Here is the movie trailer:

~ Words of a Lannister ~

Iată câteva citate aparținând lui Tyrion Lannister, personajul meu preferat din seria lui George R. R. Martin, ”A Song of Ice and Fire”:

”Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it and it will never be used to hurt you.”

”My mind is my weapon. (…) A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”

”Let them see that their words can cut you, and you’ll never be free of the mockery.”

I really adore the character and Peter, the actor, is absolutely brilliant!
