[x]The New World.

Wow.

I can't really recommend this movie to anyone, because I can't think of anyone who would like it or feel it like I did. It just hit me, square... right in that spot between your stomach and your heart.

This movie has Colin Farrell and Christian Bale (one of my favorite actors) in it. Both are really good...

However, this movie is all about Pocohontas, played by Q'Orianka Kilcher. She absolutely lights up the screen every moment she is on. I can't recall someone who has acted so powerfully in a movie. Normally I am all about how beautiful an actress is, etc. - This was so much more.

Her character is so full of life it tears you apart. I am really at a loss right now. She's amazing.

My buddy Hump told me going into this that there wasn't much dialogue in the film. There isn't. At least, not nearly as much as you are used to. It's suits this movie so well...

It really reminded me what falling in love is all about. It's not about words... It's about innocence. It's more about what isn't being said, it's about the silences in between. It's in those moments you fall in love. It's touch, it's that instant where you steal a glance at someone when they aren't looking. It's when you eyes meet...

It's in the tension and hesitation. It's when your heart is beating out of your chest in nervousness and you are nothing but elated. It's when the only sound is breathing, it's when they are close...

And here I am trying to put into words... always words, everything I write, every poem - trying to describe something that has nothing to do with words.

  1. I enjoy reading each of your entries - seriously. I am in love right now (with a girl over here, Germany) - thats the way you feel - its impossible to describe with words, but you get close.
