... you can learn from:
Ronny: Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn't know this either, but love don't make things nice - it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren't here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die. The storybooks are bullshit. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and get in my bed!
Wanna hear something crazy? I started watching Moonstruck yesterday -- on a whim I'd recently recorded it off of TCM -- and I realized about halfway through that I don't think I had ever seen Moonstruck before! I know! I am sure I'd seen pieces of it before -- it's literally impossible not to have Cher's delivery of "Snap out of it!" memorized by the age of twelve in this country. But there were wide swathes that were whollu unfamiliar.
Wanna hear something else, something not so crazy? That's a good movie! Sharp unobtrusive direction from Norman Jewison of a marvelously witty script from Doubt playwright John Patrick Shanley that's stuffed from one end to the other with instantly memorable characters -- somehow a person shows up for thirty seconds and you feel like you've known them your entire life. I loved it. Y'all are longtime fans and I'm ridiculous for not having seen it, right?
