cloud atlas film

Sixsmith, salgo i gradini dello Scott Monument ogni mattina, e tutto diventa chiaro. Vorrei poterti fare vedere tutta questa luminosità. Non preoccuparti, va tutto bene, va tutto così perfettamente maledettamente bene. Capisco ora che i confini tra rumore e suono sono convenzioni. Tutti i confini sono convenzioni, in attesa di essere superate; si può superare qualunque convenzione, solo se prima si può concepire di poterlo fare. In momenti come questi, sento chiaramente battere il tuo cuore come sento il mio, e so che la separazione è un'illusione. La mia vita si estende ben oltre i limiti di me stesso.

anonymous asked:

im trying to broaden my movies, so i was wondering if you could recommend any indie movies or movies that aren't mainstream?

these are not all independent films, but some which i adore and think are under-appreciated/not widely viewed.
