Encounter #70: When I grow old.

My friend Kevin put this clip up when Edward Yang died last summer. It's not because I missed seeing The Terrorizer on Friday, nor is it because I'll probably have to miss A Brighter Summer Day this Wednesday, but I've been thinking about Yi Yi a lot recently. It's just so gentle. It's the kind of film I want more of in my life. At a bar tonight my friend Cam was talking about how he wanted to watch a Hayao Miyazaki movie that wasn't Mononoke Hime but was similar to it -- that he hadn't seen -- even though he knows it doesn't exist. I should have told him to watch this picture. Instead we talked about how great John From Cincinnati is... go figure. (I think it makes sense, though.) --RWK
