for as long as i can remember i`ve been into movies. My grandma used to take me everyweek to this old movie theatre Los Angeles, to see the disney classics, which combined with the sugus hard candys, was the epitome of happiness.i remember the day my parents bought our first VCR. it was such an important day, a happy one. that and my dogs were the best gifts any parent could give an only child girl like me. Batteries not included was the first movie my parents rented for me that day the vcr and the world of home video entered my life. when i grew a bit older, being a grunge teenager with an obsession with the smiths and feeling accordingly misserable and lonely, i grew terribly fond of going to the movies by myself. and of going to see the same movie over and over. i guess the first movie that really made an indelibly impact on me was hal hartley`s Trust. I saw that movie for the first time in the sala Lorca, a terrible movie theatre. a way too long and too narrow theatre, which no matter where you chose to sit on any of those rickety chairs, you would never see comfortably into the screen. the poor state and comfort of the place made the contrast with that overwhelming feeling i got with that film even bigger, and that`s one of my top 5 movie moments in my life for ever. i was fifteen years old. i took my best friend eli with me. and i guess that was the first time i felt absolutely and irremediablemente interpelada by a film. i was compelled to talk about it, to think about it, to feel around and about it. to draw comparissons, to identify, to analize. to write fragments of the dialogues in my notebooks. to learn dialogues by heart. i fell in love with martin donovan of course, but i was mezmerized by adrianne shelly, her in that light blue dress and those glasses. i wanted to be her. maybe cause i learned in that precise moment i felt like her. i was shocked. i was hooked. and lost and found in movies. it was the first of many to come.
