“Thank God, someone normal who doesn’t know how to act at these things either.”
I’m watching Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, which I’ve surprisingly never seen before, and while that quote describes a part of the type of person I am so perfectly, it’s not what’s inspired me.
I’m really enjoying the movie so far. Especially, the fact that Clementine works in Barnes & Noble and there are multiple scenes in a book store. I love that the characters love to read. I also love how the characters are so eccentrically normal. You know, the way I’m assuming everyone feels, wonderfully unique, but totally normal at the same time.
I don’t understand people who don’t read. Don’t they get that movies are like books that deprive the opportunity of creating your own imaginary world, the chance to delve into fantasy and fiction the way you see and feel it. Both books and movies provide the chance to escape your current reality? The thing with movies is that you are in someone else’s creative world, it’s the emotions that are the same.
Why don’t some people like to read? Are they just unintelligent or unimaginative? I assume that more people read when they are older, since as the old saying goes, the older and wiser. Is it that or is it because it’s the closest possible escape away from their current world and responsibilities?
