Trivia

  • Bato Kannon (馬頭観音) is a Buddhist deity in Japan that people pray to for the health of their horses and cows. It is also known as Hayagriva, the primary emanation of Avalokiteshvara. Bato’s name originates from the horse head that sits above his own.
  • There is a Japanese urban legend about Gozu or Ox/Cow Head, a cursed story that evokes immense fear in those that have heard it. A popular version has a teacher or coach telling students some ghost stories, one being about Gozu. The teacher was too engrossed to stop, and the listeners eventually became catatonic or they died.
  • In Chinese mythology, Ox-Head (牛頭) and Horse-Face (馬面) are guardians of the underworld. Their Japanese counterparts are Gozu and Mezu.
  • In reference to their namesakes, Bato and Gozu respectively had anthropomorphic images of a horse and an ox on their masks.
  • Michiko Enokida (Bato) also played Youko Katagiri in Jiban and Kasumi in Jiraiya. She should not be confused with the singer of the same name that was in the popular group Onyanko Club.

Infatuation

I’m trapped in a snare
Are you even aware
Of the hold you have on me?
Every time I try to move on
I wince at the pain of reality
My catatonic heart thuds
To a dying drum
What will you do with the memories?
After you stripped me to the bone
And let my guts run
Through your teeth
Be sure to cast me far
And cut the line
Vultures may smell the blood
On your hands and mistake
You for the carrion

Can we get one scene next season where Derek stops by Beacon Hills to get gas or something and finds out that Scott has werewolf asthma, Lydia is catatonic, Stiles is a murderer, Malia is on a vendetta quest, there’s a God damn Hellhound in the city, a trio of weird zombie doctors, and a squad of chimeras on the loose and he’s just like:

“Three months, Scott. I’ve been gone for three months…”

You know what I’ve done today? Jack with a side of squat. I slept in. I got up and wandered around the house in my pajamas. I helped my brother with his homework. I watched last week’s American Idol. I’m watching the Grammys right now and kind of hating whoever is in charge because god damn, Florence + the Machine should’ve won. I watched the Big Bang episode of Doctor Who, followed up by an episode of Smallville, during which I was wondering why they killed off the anti-vigilante general named Slade when I know DC has a villain named Slade until OH SHIT HE’S NOT DEAD AND THAT IS A METAL PLATE ON HIS HEAD.

I drove a bit and sat in some high school’s gym waiting for my brother. I didn’t even go to that high school. I sat on the floor listening to my iPod and staring at the wall.

Compared to the kinds of lives some people lead, I’ve been pretty catatonic.

AWAKENINGS

is one of those films that put your feet on the ground, the kind of film that makes you appreciate what you have no matter how little and make you feeling grateful for the good fortune that you have to be alive and healthy. It teaches us to be compassionate to others even though we are less fortunate as well. Stop complaining and start enjoying what we have, who we are and of those around us.

Great story with absolutely the right direction for a simple and honest film. If you’re a drama lover who enjoys sitting on a couch, watching a tear-jerking drama, then this gripping and moving drama is for you.

Awakenings earned Academy Award nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor (DeNiro) and Best Adapted Screenplay. Great performance by Robin Williams too. Robert De Niro proves that he’s not always a stereotype for violent roles. As Leonard, his gestures and expressions are so exquisitely real. This film is simply touching, I admit that I cried in the end.
