    You walk around like you’re Mr. Cool, Mr. Wisdom… but you’re not. You’re just some old hood. The other night in the bar, you asking me a question… like do I do parking lot security? Well, the answer is no! I’m trusted security inside the casino. I’m trusted with security, and I don’t fuck it up.

    films I can watch on repeat deal with themes of metaphysics, identity, the meaning of life, pimping, or are surreal as hell

Pedro AlmodóvarBorn September 25, 1949
“When I make a film, I never stop uncovering mysteries, making discoveries. When I’m writing, filming, editing, even doing promotional work, I discover new things about the film, about myself, and about others. That is what I’m subconsciously looking for when shooting a film: to glimpse the enigmas of life, even if I don’t resolve them, but at least to uncover them. Cinema is curiosity in the most intense meaning of the word.”
