Closer?


DAILY QUOTES

I really don't wanna write a "Debbie/Donnie Downer" post, but something Clive Owen said in Closer kinda mad me question some things.

DAN: Everybody wants to be happy.
LARRY: Depressives don't. They want to be unhappy to confirm their depression. If they were happy, they couldn't be depressed anymore. They'd have to go out into the world and live, which can be depressing.

First off I am not a depressive, not normally anyways. Of course from time to time I am situationally, and it happens to be one of those times. But am I holding on to what makes me sad because I'm scared to be happy? I do want to be happy but, I definitely seek out adversity in my life for some sick and strange reason. If I was accosted by two large Mafioso Casino henchmen and they said, "We can do this one of two ways." I would chose the hard way. Not really, but going by past decisions that would be the indication. At least I can look back at those past indiscretions with humor, because I know I actually lead a pretty good life, and don't have it as bad as a lot of other people out there.
Getting that semi-out of my system I have to say I really enjoyed the movie. No happy ending, no perfect characters, and life's complexities were illustrated very well. I recommend it, but you must be a fan of dialogue and character development to really appreciate it.
