movies i connect to on a spiritual level [1/??]: charlie bartlett (2007)

Well, see, that’s my whole point. I mean, you could’ve been born a single cell organism on the planet Zortex. In fact, given the odds, it’s probably more likely, but you weren’t. You were born a human being. And not just any human being in the history of human beings, but a human being that gets to be alive today, that gets to listen to all kinds of music, that gets to eat food from every culture, that gets to download porn off the internet. So, really, you have everything to live for.

movies i connect to on a spiritual level [2/??]: little miss sunshine (2006)

French writer. Total loser. Never had a real job. Unrequited love affairs. Gay. Spent 20 years writing a book almost no one reads. But he’s also probably the greatest writer since Shakespeare. Anyway, he uh… he gets down to the end of his life, and he looks back and decides that all those years he suffered, those were the best years of his life, ‘cause they made him who he was. All those years he was happy? You know, total waste. Didn’t learn a thing. So, if you sleep until you’re 18… Ah, think of the suffering you’re gonna miss. I mean high school? High school — those are your prime suffering years. You don’t get better suffering than that.

And so she wakes up
In time to break down
She left a note up on the dresser and she’s right on time
You don’t know anything right or wrong
I said i know
and she said so
I want to panic but I’ve had it so I go
You don’t owe anything to anyone

But don’t take your life
Because it’s all that you’ve got
You’d be better off just up and leaving
If you don’t think they will stop

And when you wake up
Everything is going to be fine
I guarantee that you wake up in a better place and in a better time
So you’re tired of living
And you feel like you might give in
Well don’t
It’s not your time

Looking through the paper today
Looking for a specific page
Don’t want to find her full name followed by dates
Because when I left her alone
She made a sound like a moan
“You’re known by everyone for everything you’ve done”
Fuck buying flowers for graves
I’d rather buy you a one way non-stop
To anywhere find anyone do anything
Forget and start again, love
She said she won’t go
And that’s that
it hurts too much

To stand by
You’ve got to stop and draw a line
And everyone here has to choose a side
Tonight
The moment of truth is haunting you
Don’t forget your family regardless of what you choose to do
You can’t decide
And they’re screaming “why won’t you?”
I’ll start the engine but i can’t take this ride for you
I’ll draw the bath and I’ll load your gun
But i hope so bad that you bathe and hunt

Annie’s tired of forgetting about today and always planning for tomorrow, Annie says
“The saddest day I came acrosss was when I learned that life goes on without me”, Annie says
“if everyone has someone else, then i ain’t got nobody’s love to save me”, Annie says
“i think I’ll pass away tonight, because it seems I’ll never get it right if it’s just me”

And when you wake up
Everything is going to be fine
I guarantee that you wake up in a better place and in a better time
So you’re tired of living
And you feel like you might give in
Well don’t
It’s not your time

Annie says she wouldn’t mind if they never find a cure for all her problems
Annie says as long as she has someone near to make it clear she does not need to solve them
“Oh, this loneliness is killing me
It’s filling me with anger and resentment
I’m turning into someone that i never thought I’d have to be again”

And when you wake up
Everything is going to be fine
I guarantee that you wake up in a better place and in a better time
So you’re tired of living
And you feel like you might give in
Well don’t
It’s not your time

It’s not your time
And even if it was oh, I wouldn’t let you go
You could run run run run but i will follow close
Someday you will say “that’s it, that’s all”
But I’ll be waiting there with open arms to break your fall
I know that you think that you’re on your own
But just know that I’m here and I’ll lead you home
If you let me
She said “forget me”
But I can’t
