chronicle review:


“See it’s different ‘cause you’ve always had friends, and people want to talk to you and be around you. I never had any of that. I mean, before this, I barely even hung out with Matt, and he’s my cousin. We were close when we were little, but…I don’t know. In high school, everything changed.”

-Chronicle (2012)

…in childhood we have used up too much strength…What shall one say about it? That life has unending possibilities of renewal. Yes, but this too: that the using of strength in a certain sense is always increase of strength also; for fundamentally we have to do only with a wide cycle: all strength that we give away comes over us again, experienced and altered.
—  Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet, “Chronicle: 1903-1908″

“I just wanted to say that… I’m sorry and, uh… I hope… that you know that I did what I had to do. You’re not a bad person. I know that. That’s all that matters. And, uh, I want you to know that I’m gonna be better from now on. I’m gonna help people. I’m gonna find out what happened to us down there. I don’t care how long it takes. I’m gonna get answers. I’m gonna do it for you, and I’m gonna do it for Steve. And… I just… I love you, man. I didn’t ever get a chance to tell you but I love you.” (Chronicle 2012)
