Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Christopher: The more I think about myself, the more I'm persuaded that, as a person, I really don't exist. That is one of the reasons why I can't believe in any orthodox religion: I cannot believe in my own soul. No, I am a chemical compound, conditioned by environment and education. My "character" is simply a repertoire of acquired tricks, my conversation a repertoire of adaptations and echoes, my "feelings" are dictated by purely physical, external stimuli.

I don't know if this quote's actually in the movie or not, IMDb doesn't offer up any quotes from the movie, but it is in Isherwood's original book so good enough. I haven't even seen the movie, but since it's Matt Smith's 32nd birthday it seemed like a fine opportunity to post a few of these gratuitous gay gifs from it in his honor. Happy birthday, Matt! Have any of you seen the movie? Is it worth my time to watch the entire thing or should I just watch this YouTube compilation of the sex scenes and call it a day?

It's worth watching. After I saw it, I tracked down the book. It has lots more interesting details (fewer pretty pictures, alas).

Definitely worth watching, but I find it hard to believe Isherwood would have been a top with those hot German guys.
