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.
