    Cameron Burgess just watched this movie again the other night – such a clear reminder that being well-informed (about anything) does not hold the nectar we seek

    Lara Minichiello Perfect. Having recently been told by someone I truly loved, that "they don't believe in love…" this was a gift to see today. Call it what you will, love exists. And we are all kids, scared shitless to let it in, to one degree or another. Brilliant pick today, Waylon.

    Sven Pihl Yes, yes I have. A mother and her two kids. Then it ended and I hurt, badly, really badly. I freely gave away everything. I needed to rebuild my "self", and in a hurry. I have been on the mat ever since.
