From this post on feeling valid
I don’t mean to be a bummer here. But it’s important to point out that we’re born in terror, we exist for no reason, we experience confusion and shame as children, we busily prepare ourselves for lives we don’t want or can’t have, we are forced to take on the burdens of adult responsibility, we compromise relentlessly on what life we’ll pursue, we settle and settle and settle, we fear death and ponder our meaninglessness, we experience the horrors of aging, and when we die the only comfort we have is that we aren’t conscious to learn that there was never any heaven or God to give it all meaning. This is the inevitable reality of human life and it can never change.
Not sure why I found that interesting, but she was in On The Waterfront in 1954 –

I liked it quite a lot – one review I saw consisted of “A mob movie for people who like mob movies” which sums it up perfectly. High concept, low budget, (taking place in only 3 rooms) all perfect dialogue and character selection.
It was okay – Mads Mikkelson is great in everything he does – it was worth sitting through, no need to see it again. The production team did a great job on the visuals. Marleigh enjoyed it.
The new Wings of Fire book anyway – thank you Amazon Prime!
