Thank God for books and music and things I can think about.

Flowers for Algernon, Daniel Keyes (via fuckyeahliteraryquotes)

I don’t know what’s worse: to not know what you are and be happy, or to become what you’ve always wanted to be, and feel alone.

Flowers for Algernon, Daniel Keyes (via fuckyeahliteraryquotes)

Jesus exposed the ugliness of inhumane religious laws by healing on the Sabbath. He exposed the ugliness of patriarchy by his respectful treatment of women. He exposed the ugliness of cultural taboos by touching lepers and having fellowship with unacceptable “sinners”. He exposed the ugliness of institutionalized Jewish racism by ministering to and praising Gentiles and Samaritans. And he exposed the ugly injustice of the Roman government and the world by entering into solidarity with a rebel race and letting us crucify him on the cross. Jesus’ whole life was the kingdom of God, and his consistent sacrificial love, in solidarity with the oppressed, consistently provided a beautiful contrast to the ugliness of the oppressive kingdom of the world and the oppressive principalities and powers that are over it.

David Fincher: The look on Jesse’s face after Andrew says, “Oh god, we’re in so much trouble now,” and you cut to Jesse and he has this sort of impish look on his face, like “so what? Isn’t that the point, to be naughty?” and then you see it sink in for a second—he’s like, “oh wait a minute.” I remember watching him as we were shooting and he did it probably 12 or 13 times, and every time it was just a little bit different. You could just tell he had his fingers tightly around the throat of exactly what he was doing with this guy, and it’s a great pleasure to watch somebody who is as skillful as Jesse Eisenberg is. He doesn’t, I think, give himself the credit a lot of times because he’s so much of a responder. He’s not the kind of actor who wants to take center stage; he wants to react. But when you see him be this good for this many weeks in a row—and I remember he took me aside at one point and said, “You would tell me if I was sucking ass, you would tell me if I was terrible?” and I said, “Oh yeah, absolutely, you would be the first to know.”

This film won’t get out of my head. There’s was much that struck me deeply. And much that passed right by me. But it was such a crazy experience. I think I loved it.

I’m directing a short film this weekend. We have a GoFundMe page we’ve been using to raise support to fund the project. We’ve raised $250 of our $500 goal with less than a week left before the shoot. If a lot of Tumblr users who care about the arts pitched in a dollar, we’ll be able to share in a gift we made together. If you have a minute and a dollar, consider supporting our take on relationships and loss: gofundme.com/Intersect

I knew pretty soon after posting this listing that Intersect would cost more than $500. Due to an unexpectedly high price of a location rental that was recently confirmed, I’ve updated our funding goals to the accurate sum of $700. Since my last post we’ve gotten to $450! Ryan and I met with the cast on Tuesday for dinner and rehearsal, and I can’t express how stoked I am to put the script to the screen. Our leads and supporting are fantastic and will do wonderful work this weekend. Help our dreams come true: gofundme.com/Intersect

This was my second time seeing Magnolia and I liked it even more this time around. I think it’s PTA’s most inaccessible film, but the end/John C. Reilly really bring it all together for me. It’s quite the viewing experience.

Ethan Hawke and Philip Seymour Hoffman are superb in this film. Their work together at the Labyrinth theatre clearly pays off. Hawke made me physically uncomfortable with his performance and PSH was a steaming volcano with an unexpected and welcome eruption (it was really sad watching him do drugs in a film however). The plot started meandering in the middle a bit, and some more development between the parent/sons relationships would have helped this, but overall the performances were enjoyable and the broken timeline was really interesting.
