Yesterday Candide said that, on my recommendation, he was watching Raging Bull, a movie I think is very beautiful. When it came out I watched it multiple times in a row within the first few days. The beauty of the visual imagery just makes me faint.
A while ago I watched Andrei Rublev by director Andrei Tarkovsky, upon Candide's recommendation. It was incredibly beautiful overall.
He said, "It's hard to watch as all the characters are unsympathetic," about Raging Bull.
I said... well, nothing about Andrei Rublev, but I am haunted by the real cruelty to the animals. Visual imagery gets burned into my brain after one sight of it, just like music does. me/ pounds her head on the table. Ugh. If only it had been faked.
