yet another movie
i just saw 'American Beauty'. it's just what i needed- a twisted bitter-sweet film. 'American Beauty' is, of course, a movie about Beauty.the whole thing is describing what the character played by Kevin Spacey sees while dying,not his whole life, just the late happenings and those random beautiful things we love about the ones we care.one of the things he then remembers is his grandmother's paper resembling skin. the whole film is fascinating,the characters,the lines,the actors,the red blood hue which appears throughout the film (like an offence to the dull reality or like an illomen).
this are Lester's last toughts:
'it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life...You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure... but don't worry...You will someday.'
