"This mystery. I feel dark, in darkness, which will never end. I don’t dare wish to work in theater, cinema, dance, singing. Because I’ve lived them and moments later I no longer had their light and didn’t know what, what for nor why I did them, and the same sadness would take over. I feel so sick. If only I could vomit. Not even that. I feel weak, a coward and ashamed before life and everyone. I want to die. Reason? So many it would be ridiculous to mention. I give up. I give up because my heart’s so sad I feel I have the right to no longer wander with this body that occupies space and keeps on shattering what I have that’s so very fragile.
I want to disappear. This time I was not supposed to fight.”

No. 59: Moulin Rouge
There was a time, a very strange enchanted time, when I was about 11, that I watched this movie once a week. And I would bawl my eyes out but at the same time be like HAHA nothing that crappy would ever happen to me. Those were the days of our lives. I have since grown even more shockingly susceptible to a tragic ending and can rarely, if ever, make it through the whole thing.

12. Stuck in Love (2012)

10/10

This movie was AMAZING. I completely loved it. Maybe it’s because it’s about writers and I love everything that has to do with writers.

Anyway, this movie is spectacular.

All and every single one of the cast members are amazing actors. Have Logan Lerman in your movie and I’m going to watch it. Have Logan Lerman, Lily Collins AND Greg Kinnear and I’m gonna fall in lie with your movie.

Everything about this movie is so lovely and charming and real and beautiful. There’s nothing I don’t love about this movie. 100% recommended.
