"And I add my own love to the history of people who have loved beautiful things, and looked out for them, and pulled them from the fire, and sought them when they were lost, and tried to preserve them and save them while passing them along literally from hand to hand, singing out brilliantly from the wreck of time to the next generation of lovers, and the next." - Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

Interesting movies I’ve seen lately

Palo Alto - Strange, but interesting nonetheless. Wouldn’t recommend it for theaters — wait until it hits Netflix. (Based off a short story by James Franco.) 

Obvious Child - Absolutely lovely. Brilliant storytelling and a beautiful, authentic approach to a difficult topic.

Cold in July - Fun, fast-paced toward the end, interesting cast. Feels like a Bukowski/McCarthy hybrid on film. Really enjoyed it

Boyhood - Lovely, unique storytelling. Simple plot but real and relatable. Loved the cast, same cast filmed over 12 years! Really worth the watch.

I know there are more, but can’t seem to think of them off the top of my head.
