It’s natural to worry that the colossal success of a tightly formatted movie such as the new ‘Transformers’ will only stiffen the resolve of studios to repeat it, or will only solidify the shapes of existing pigeonholes and sideline unusual and distinctive movies even further. Yet such concern reduces to a mere snobbery of taste, a straw-person diversion akin to an opera house blaming low attendance at a production of ‘Salomé’ on a Miley Cyrus concert.
Given how long it’s taken me to reconcile my nature, I can’t figure I’d forego it on your account.
It’s not about fairness. It’s not really about talent. It’s circumstance, it’s luck, it’s destiny. I don’t know what it is, but the best people … deal with it.
Life is about surviving things, appreciating nature, nurturing kindness and friendship, and dancing.
Think before you speak. Read before you think.
