In the Mood for Marienbad

I didn’t automatically love it but it was definitely intriguing. I had a thought in the middle of it: I could imagine utterly falling for this film if the soundtrack was different. The organ (or whatever that may be) didn’t get me all swelled with joy like the most beautiful movies do. I’m thinking something with strings, and something along the lines of Fa yeung nin wa (In the Mood for Love, 2000).

I think someday I’ll have to watch the film on mute with the audio from In the Mood for Love. And I can imagine it being absolutely perfect.

Hi! I'm Rachel, and this is my blog. I've tended to assume that if I ever blogged, it'd be a sappy diary. But based on what I've favored reading in other posts, I'm going to do this instead: pluck out isolated, varied things/ideas/experiences I find engrossing, try to choose the few right words out of a potential million, and hopefully cleanse my writing skills in the process. Because, you know, when I was little and was questioned about a future career, my answer was typically: "I'm going to be an author."

Oh, and I'm an aspiring film connoisseur. See my ratings at IMDB.
