I'd never read The Perks of a Wallflower (definitely on my reading list now), but I thought it was a beautiful movie. Directed by the author, I loved the soundtrack and general aesthetic of the movie. So many shoutouts to the great things about the recent past; mix tapes, typewriters, and being an individual. Coming out of the movie, I thought two things: firstly, that I wasn't living my life to the fullest and secondly, that I wanted to.
We also watched Silver Linings Playbook last night. This movie, while also brilliant, with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, was a more typical Hollywood romcom, which isn't a bad thing. I wasn't left with any lingering feelings or desires from this movie, but it was still very enjoyable.
Movies still on the "To Watch" list:
- Moonrise Kingdom
- The Art of Getting By
Currently listening to: "Asleep" The Smiths (and the rest of the Perks soundtrack)
