People assume I’m trying to be ‘sophisticated’ or 'hipster’ by watching old movies, but really I love them- because I think we should experience everything this world has ever had to offer, and these movies are the best way to experience a taste of the past in this day and age
I fell in love with Marlon Brando when i saw him in “A Streetcar Named Desire”. Alas, I have to admit that I admired his good looks first. When I started reading about him and his life, I came to admire him for his beautiful, but troubled soul. I love how progressive, open-minded and unconventional he was. Yes, he could be a pain in the ass, but when it comes down to it he was an empathic, concerned human being. Without his idiosyncrasies, he could’ve never been the great actor that he was imho.
I am convince that I was suppose to see “City Lights” when I did. The way Charlie Chaplin tackles the concept of suicide convinced that me that killing yourself is never the answer and “that tomorrow the birds will sing”.
