is she yours, yes, she’s mine

I love this scene in Closer. Natalie Portman is a favorite of mine. In this movie she moves me.  She plays this girl, so mysterious and naughty yet childlike and carefree. This is the only movie that has ever made me have strong feelings for at least two days after seeing it in theatres. The relationships between the characters are real and crowded with mixed messages. They are allso strong but weak at the same time. Pulling their feelings from one another and back to where they used to be.

It’s my most favorite at 4:37 when she  says “Where is this love?  I can’t see it,  I can’t touch it.  I can’t feel it.  I can hear it.  I can hear some words, but I can’t do anything with your easy words.”  I used to watch Closer over and over. So many times  I found comfort in her honesty, the way she could just just let herself  be so open and vulnerable.  Meanwhile,  the whole time she was really just hiding. shirt

    Who knows if there is in fact, Love. All we know for sure is that Love — these days — can be as crowded as a glory hole during Pride festivities or be as empty as a Politician's soul.

    Is it a clean, sterile place full of sunshine? That sounds like Forest Hill where almost everybody seems happy, except those who know in their hearts that something is missing… It's an answer but also a path to a lifetime of craziness that comes with understanding that there is something that you desire, want and need but it's not there…

    But in your heart you know it's there – despite the forked tongue of fate that has left you feeling the rainy Monday morning blues…
