“It’s now very common to hear people say “I’m rather offended by that. As if that gives them certain rights. It’s actually nothing but… It’s simply a whine. It’s no more than a whine. “I find that offensive” that’s… It has no meaning, it has no purpose, it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. “I am offended by that.” Well so fucking what?”—Stephen Fry (via backyardolivetree)
“I don’t like the idea of “understanding” a film. I don’t believe that rational understanding is an essential element in the reception of any work of art. Either a film has something to say to you or it hasn’t. If you are moved by it, you don’t need it explained to you. If not, no explanation can make you moved by it.”—Federico Fellini (via backyardolivetree)
I love seeing people walking by with little smiles on their face because something small happened that made them happy. Maybe they got a cute text, maybe they got laid, maybe they killed a man. You will never know.
