living in the movies

I couldn’t sleep the other night and ended up making a list of all sorts of movie scenes and emotions that I want to experience.  I feel like maybe this should become a regular feature around here.  We shall see.

This is one of my favorite scenes of all time.  It comes from The Royal Tenenbaums and I don’t even know exactly what about it that I like so much.  I mean the aesthetic is great, the music (“These Days” by Nico if you are interested), the odd dialogue…  But there is an emotion behind it all that I love, like the feeling of coming home that is related to a person.  Maybe I have already felt it before, in which case this just makes me nostalgic for it.
