The Place Beyond The Pines really surprised me and I don’t even like the main actors. Incredible first act. And the end of the movie reminded me of Philip Larkin’s famous poem, This Be The Verse (They fuck you up, your mum and dad…).
I don’t think this is the whole verse. But it’s one of my favorites.
I want this in my new living room.
"Wild animals forced to live captive lives have very complex needs. Food, water and protection are only the start. Even with those three basic needs taken care of, a captive animal can still be driven mad from stress and loneliness.”
Fight for animal freedom.
Support only animal-free circuses.
Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleeping
We could dream this night away
But there’s a full moon rising
Let’s go dancing in the light
We know where the music’s playing
Let’s go out and feel the night
Neil Young, Harvest Moon
