It's been a while since I had an alone date. A good movie. Cheap wine. A warm bed. Was feeling a little low this evening, after spending a lot of energy trying to make someone my friend, and I had to stop and think why the fuck I even bother? This movie sort of answered it for me. Freddie, in one scene, when he wants to breakaway from Queen, lashes out at his bandmates, who are all married and have children, what society wants us to think is the ultimate goal in life. The only way to happiness. But what the movie tells me is that some of us are really meant to live our lives like Freddie, alone, never really belonging, always the outsider, making people happy with out art but never really finding the happiness we imagine in our heads. A sad ending awaits, however much the movie wanted us to believe his was a happy ending, by finishing it off with Jim and that concert.
