Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

mother! (2017)
HIHIM: You won't hurt much longer.
Mother: What hurts me the most is that I wasn't enough.
HIM: It's not your fault. Nothing is ever enough.
I couldn't create if it was. And I have to. That's what I do.
That's... what I am. Now I must try it all again.

Jeez typing out dialogue from this movie with those character names really drives home the blistering pretentiousness of this movie - I say that with admiration, by the way! Darren Aronofsky, bless him, is not shy about pushing through and onto and upward, or downward, or sideways - whatever it takes to reach moments of bat-shit cinematic ecstasy. I was re-watching some clips of The Fountain earlier this week and dude is consistent in that much - we shouldn't be surprised about it. Anyway a happy 49th birthday to Javi!

I have no idea what this picture of him with Dev Patel is about 
but I like looking at it, even without context.
