the total lack of Apichatpong Weerasethakul movies on netflix is really bumming me out

Anonymous asked: Bordwell is actually an emeritus professor at my university (University of Wisconsin-Madison), and as I'm a student worker in the film studies department, he stops in from time to time. I'm always way too starstruck to say anything, but this time I had the courage to not only offer him my umbrella, but to also talk to him briefly about Shoshanna Dreyfus (who is featured on the new edition of Film Art he was dropping off). It. Was. Awesome. He's very sweet!

WHAAAAAT

DAVID BORDWELL AND SHOSHANNA DREYFUS FUUUUUUU

or do i want to continue not wearing pants?

that awkward moment when you drive out to L.A. for a movie you’ve already bought a ticket for and you’re running late but you get there sort of on time but then you can’t find parking for half an hour and then you look at the clock and just give up and go home and then there’s traffic on the way home and you end up spending 3 hours driving to and from no where, for no reason

yeah. that happens to everyone right?

NIGHT AND THE CITY during GIRL SHY?
