These progressive shots give a feeling of increasing warmth through the yellow tones and addition of surrounding characters- it’s as if each still has a varying form of silence and contentedness. Ryan’s character is literally being transported to a state of calm.
I love to smoke. Smoking a cigarette is like forgetting. When I hit rock bottom it’s all I have. Light up, smoke up, shut the fuck up. It hides the shit. The smoke hides the shit. There’s menthol and vanilla. Some people like ‘em. Menthol cigarette. Vanilla cigarette. Chocolate cigarette. Cigarette cigarette. Cigarettes clearly keep me from going crazy. Keeps me alive. It keeps me alive until I die.
