My Mind Bursts


First there is this -

“What distinguishes the majority of men from the few is their inability to act according to their beliefs."

Henry Miller.

Then there is this -

"It's a matter of love; the more you love a memory the stronger that memory becomes."

Nabakov.

Fucking Amal
comments:  Lesbian Love between Norweigan teeners- a classy comedy from Lukas Moodysson. Also try 'Flirting' for teenage Tandie Newton, Noah ??? and Nicole Kidman as well as 'Amelie', 'Delicatessan', 'Toto le Hero'
Peter Pan
comments:  This is the first time I've returned to a cinema three times to see a movie. Go see 'Peter Pan.' AlsoTerry Gilliam's films, also Peter Greenaway and Alan Parker.
Diva
comments:  Also from Jean-Jacques Benniex, 'Betty Blue.'
The Unbearable Lightness of Being

My favorite authors:

Henry Miller
comments:  Tropic of Cancer, Sexus, even Plexus ... his letters. Anais Nin, her journals and erotica.
Michel Houellebecq

Audrey Niffenegger
comments:  'The Time Traveller’s Wife’ & M Kundera 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' again, Also Michael Ondaatje.
Haruki Murakami

Steven Pressfield
comments:  'The Gates of Fire' is epic, rich and dense. 'The War of Art' is a crucial read for anyone setting out to write.
