This is a beautiful work. It definitely made me feel closer to something bigger than myself. There's real suspense in this conversation, and ideas so full of wonder and emotion. After finishing it, I felt like I needed to watch it all over again because there's so much here to think about. This is one of those truly special movies that only comes along every once in a while. I can safely say it's a new favorite.
So many insightful fascinating things are said in this film, it really is quite overwhelming, the very ideas they share. This is why I love film. Ideas shared that can be so alien at first, but at the end, coming back to reality, you feel you have learned something and experienced something profound and truly special, that you never would have had otherwise. An exchange of experiences and ideas, ones with meaning.
"You see, I keep thinking that what we need is a new language - a language of the heart. (...) Some kind of language between people that is a new kind of poetry. (...) And I think that in order to create that language you're going to have to learn how you can go through a looking glass into another kind of perception, where you have that sense of being united to all things and suddenly you understand everything."
What a gem. I can't even begin to explain how stimulating an experience this was for me. Andre describing the sensation of feeling that he was buried alive had me gasping for breath. In the end though I felt like Wally happy to just be alive, with all my memories that still linger like fine wine, justifying my existence or more simply giving me the foundation on which I can know how alive I am.
