Sunset Blvd.

June 29, 2010

Sunset Blvd. (1950) – brilliant performance of bitter and tragic madness in various forms on love of another person, love of fame, love for Hollywood. A former star trapped in fantasies of the silent movies gone era when: “We didn’t need dialogue. We had faces!” Film noir. Très noir.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being

June 28, 2010

I have found it ambiguously enjoyable reading almost all works translated in Bulgarian by the writer of Czech origin Milan Kundera. The concept of the fragile nature of an individual’s fate and its insignificance in Nietzsche’s sense, ‘because in an infinite universe, everything is guaranteed to recur infinitely’ (‘The Unbearable Lightness of Being’) – ‘There is no means of testing which decision is better, because there is no basis for comparison. We live everything as it comes, without warning, like an actor going on cold. And what can life be worth if the first rehearsal for life is life itself?’

The Magnificent Seven

June 25, 2010

Watching a movie where most deal ‘in lead, friend’ is magnificent as far as The Magnificent Seven (1960) is concerned, for everyone involved in this Western is fighting. Some for a future, others for justice, and still others for money.

Galium

June 24, 2010

Enyovden in Bulgaria (Midsummer)  is a day associated with the Sun and herbs’ collecting, as their healing powers are believed to be the strongest at sun rise on this day. The herb named Enyovche (Galium) is a popular herb in Bulgaria and was used as a dye during Anglo-Saxon times in England. Image: dnevnik.bg
