"an attempt at cinema" that "reminds us one must attempt to live"

Probably my favorite of the stills I grabbed for the Inside Voices press kit.

Love and politics have inverse numericity: in politics the state has an errant infinity of power over the simply infinity of the situation. The precise naming of the antagonism produces a 2 (to compare two sizes of infinity) to attempt to measure the immeasurable excess of the state. A state death allows us to dispense with the categories of right and freedom and thinks the 1 of equality. Love moves from the 1 to the 2 of the couple, to the infinitely infinite re-enchantment of the world.

nothing was the same
"You said: "I’ll go to another country, go to another shore,
find another city better than this one.
Whatever I try to do is fated to turn out wrong
and my heart lies buried like something dead.
How long can I let my mind moulder in this place?
Wherever I turn, wherever I look.
I see the black ruins of my life, here,
where I’ve spent so many years, wasted them, destroyed them totally.”
You won’t find a new country, won’t find another shore.
This city will always pursue you.
You’ll walk the same streets, grow old
in the same neighborhoods, turn gray in these same houses.
You’ll always end up in this city. Don’t hope for things elsewhere;
there’s no ship for you, there’s no road.
Now that you’ve wasted your life here, in this small corner,
you’ve destroyed it everywhere in the world.”
"I live between the plague and the fire
with my language
with these speechless worlds”
