    I wouldn't say this was my favorite episode but it definitely had one of the best acting and lines. Hank's last line before his death was so epic.

    I went to see this movie by subway. When Park started talking about the smell of the subway, my feelings for him became uncomfortable. I felt like I was no longer just a bystander watching the situation. Park was the character who did nothing wrong but I could never like him. in fact i think Kim was the one who is hateful but also more empathetic

    Give up your vapid philosophy. Enjoy the goddamned music for what it is. Someone of your ilk will never get it. Your projections are futile. You weren't there. You never took LSD, and if you did, you can't claim you took it then. You need to back off and relax, brother. Everyone will be dead soon. And that's fine. We don't need your trip to distort such realities, for what?...internet ratings? You give a disservice to nuance, truth, reality, discovery....and instead fill it with a boring slice of bread of banality and staleness, moldiness, coming-uping-with-nothing-new-ness, and a general stench of f**k off. You remind me of a pylon at Kent State. You're in the way and serve as nothing.

    I put off watching this movie for a long time, even though it interested me, because I'm not really a movie person and become bored easily with them. But I couldn't pry my eyes from the screen with this one once it started. If anything, it taught me that I just need to watch better movies. But this was brilliant. I've often thought about how people think in the language they know, thus the possibility of speaking another or multiple languages leading to different thought processes and world views. Anyway, the film was fantastic and easily shot its way up into my top 5, if not 3. Still kind of processing it.

    It’s a step in the right direction, but there’s simply *too much* talking over each other, blatant overdubbing someone else’s sentence. When people talk over each other, it tends to be more of an overlap at the tail end of someone’s speech with the other persons response, or interjections of agreement, disagreement, approval or consolation. Plus, there’s a near total absence of umming and ahhh’ing and pausing, or stumbling over words. I feel like he went overboard, and over engineered the dialogue.

    I wish you explored this concept deeper. How do words affect each of the main characters? I don't think it's the same for all of them. And what does all this implicate about the messaging of the show? You made a lot of interesting generalizations, but I think there's more to dig up in this direction. Nice to see you back though :)

    Moreover, I would like to understand people who claim to understand Picasso. Cause there is a bloody awful piece of mural in my city made by him that a bunch of people are adamantly defending because of "Picasso quality art". In reality, the five year olds in my local kindergarten draw artistically greater and philosophically deeper things with crayons. Modern art was a lost cause the moment it came out of the womb.
