Learning time: Prisoners

Standard

Last week I’ve been for the second time at the cinema to watch the movie Prisoners and it was also the second night I couldn’t stop thinking about something.
This brilliant movie approaches a sensitive subject: the kidnapping of one’s child. The movie is dark, cruel, very sad and very close to reality. Don’t be fooled into thinking that this is a light, Sunday-evening movie, because it is not. From the superb performance of the actors, to the intelligent script, this is one of the very few movies that made me buy a second ticket.
Now let me get back on the actors. Paul Dano is brilliant in his role and makes the story twisted and dark, while Hugh Jackman gives a touching performance of a father so desperate, that he would do anything to get back his little girl. And last but not least, there’s that damn Jake Gyllehaal. Leaving aside his baby blue eyes and that annoyingly beautiful face and… What was I saying?
Oh, yes, even my father loved him. I mean his performance.
Go see this movies while it’s still in cinemas. My mother, a romance fan, hated me for dragging her to a creepy movie and in the morning she said it was absolutely brilliant.
Go for the plot, go for Jackman or Gyllenhaal, go for the writing of the story, just don’t miss it!

Love, M.

Exams, Plato and Music.

Standard

Red eyes, caffeine supply, hundreds of written pages and nights unslept. Yap, it’s exams time again. Tomorrow it’s the start and we finish in two weeks. Five subjects, five test-papers and I can only hope for the best.
Tonight I am finished and I’ve done all I can for the tomorrow paper. Of course, otherwise I wouldn’t be here.
Point is… I wanted to share some music with you.
Why?
Easy. Because music is the best way to relax, to spend three minutes away from all the stress and just enjoy a good song. Even Plato says:

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.

Between my personal favourites are Mika, Muse, Coldplay, Maroon 5, Arctic Monkeys and such. I’m sure you’ve all heard of them, but it’s my duty to formally introduce you to the music that touches my soul.

The path

Standard

Lately I’ve seen lots of people in the desperate search of finding their one self. Trying to discover their part in this life, who they are meant to be. But this is all non-sense to me. Traveling the world won’t help you realize who you are because after all, life isn’t about finding yourself but about creating yourself. We spend our whole lives trying to find our path until one day your life is over and you haven’t done anything at all. We are trying so hard to fit in this well-known categories, we try so hard to be labelled, and yet we pretend to be called unique.But, at the end of the day the point in this pointless life is to do whatever you want to do. To fully live, to create the path that suits you best, to face life fearlessly and take the decisions that make you happy. Labels are for the narrow minded because each of us is different, and the appearence may look the same but inside we’re just made out of different ingredients.
