Monday Motivaton - KOYAANISQATSI (1982)
Alfredo: Living here day by day, you think it's the center of the world. You believe nothing will ever change. Then you leave: a year, two years. When you come back, everything's changed. The thread's broken. What you came to find isn't there. What was yours is gone. You have to go away for a long time... many years... before you can come back and find your people. The land where you were born. But now, no. It's not possible. Right now you're blinder than I am.
Salvatore: Who said that? Gary Cooper? James Stewart? Henry Fonda? Eh?
Alfredo: No, Toto. Nobody said it. This time it's all me. Life isn't like in the movies. Life... is much harder.
Cinema Paradiso is one of my all time favorite films. It’s tied at my number 2 with a lot of other films. It’s definitely a film I relate too. My directors cut DVD was about to have it so I decided to buy the blu-ray at Barnes & Noble since it was on sale plus I had a coupon. I’m so happy that I finally own the directors cut on blu-ray. Already had the theatrical, but I prefer the directors cut more. Although both versions hold a very special place in my heart.

What a wonderful day! We started with EZ woodworking with Ed this morning. He's moving right along on this project and has learned so much. After a little bit of traditional school (math and reading) we spent the rest of the afternoon baking cookies and making Christmas cards for a few of our neighbors and friends. The kids delivered them with love before heading to their various practices (dance, basketball and wrestling). God gave us a beautiful sunset and I made a delicious chicken pot pie for supper. #youwishyouwerehomeschooled #arrowacademy #adayinthelife #homeschoolperks #woodshop #baking #homeec #kansassunset
GOSFORD PARK, Robert Altman’s Agatha Christie inspired masterpiece, has finally — and I truly mean FINALLY — come to Blu-Ray courtesy of @arrowacademy.
The image, restored at 4K from the original negative and supervised by cinematographer Andrew Dunn, is so deliciously murky and desaturated, I was smiling like an idiot when the first frames popped on screen. The imagery and movement in GOSFORD PARK, while an Altman trait, certainly recalls a grainy, experimental quality ala Vilmos Zsigmond’s work in McCABE AND MRS. MILLER, IMAGES and THE LONG GOODBYE. While the disc includes all the same features from the original DVD release, there are a couple of new treats, including an audio commentary from the author of “Altman on Altman”. Arrow Academy’s releases are nothing short of phenomenal, and certainly could rival Criterion.
A hypnotic, Kafkaesque tale of paranoia in a poisoned city. Ingmar Bergman's THE SERPENT'S EGG is out now in 🇬🇧🇺🇲🇨🇦

Saddened to hear of the passing of Bernardo Bertolucci, a true master of Italian cinema.
Picked up a couple of Arrow releases since B&N is having a sale on them currently. I haven't seen 12 Monkeys in a long time, but I remember liking Brad Pitt's wacky performance. As for Distant Voices, Still Lives, the 4K restoration trailer of the movie sold me to blind buy it. Hopefully the film is as good as the trailer I saw

Working on my top five films of 2018 for a magazine article and I am thrilled I have finally had the chance to watch Hirokazu Kore-eda's "Shoplifters", this year's Palme d'Or winner. I loved it and it's definitely one of my favourites of the year. I haven't seen all Kore-eda's movies yet, but I liked everything I've seen so far (among which "Our Little Sister" and "Like Father, Like Son"). His films, through their simplicity, quiet beauty and family portrayals, always remind me of Yasujirō Ozu's. #talkingmovies #hirokazukoreeda
