So glad I found this. I loved the Marilyn character. I watched every episode of Northern Exposure and this scene was my absolute favorite. Ever since I saw it has popped into my thoughts every month or two for no apparent reason.

THANK YOU. SO MUCH.
I just saw the movie today, and the two exact things I loved and I wanted together in one post, right here, is beautiful.

After so much “fastidious” and “auspicious” spam (a dig at how frequently those words show up in their content), I can’t tell you what a pleasure it is to read your comment. Intelligent, well-meaning, pertaining to the content of the actual post (just as I’ve always hoped) and much, MUCH appreciated!

It’s truly invigorating and heartening to know that people like you are reading this blog. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, Chris!

A wonderfully illuminating piece, a brilliant actor, a face as expressive, unique and unconventionally handsome as any to ever grace the big screen. You could never forget Pete’s face, it was otherworldly, when you align that with a depth of talent and craft unrivaled by the soulless vacuous droids churned out by Hollywood. You have someone truly sublime. I see Pete in your work, and I salute the validity of your influence. In the name of the father was such a powerful piece of cinema. That some label the gargantuan Postlethwaite as ugly is symbolic of their deep deep spiritual void.

Actually, I wrote the poem.
It turned 23 years old on Feb. 26th.
It should be “lodged in life” instead of launched.
a couple of other things too.
I have it on my website, with a spoken word version with
my friend playing guitar. Thanks for posting it.
Just wanted to say hi.

Not confusing at all! (for future reference, I do speak Portuguese if you feel more comfortable with that)
I don’t remember the Zeffirelli version of Jane Eyre very well, which means I’m probably due for a second viewing. But yeah, I love little moments like that… little things…
Thanks a lot for the comment! It’s always great to hear from like-minded people! :)

perfect. when I heard him saying that, was like he was saying something I wanted to say for so long, and he put in words, perfectly. including the “fuck you” part. ;)
was cool to know someonelse had the same impact I did.

for me there are many other sentences in the middle of books, movies, series. that I dont know if make such a impression on most people, but for me was like remarcable.

“you fool", in Jane Eyre movie adaptation by Franco Zeffirelli, I think is such a small scene, but for me was a great moment. is good to see other people noticing the small details.

sorry if my text is confusea

In Cuiaba (Brazil) seek new aesthetics, politics and ethics from, abundant, solid waste disposed in the streets, towards abstraction in unusual images. Intervene without removal of waste, ephemeral.

Comment from: Iris [Member]

Yeah, you’re absolutely right. Taking people for granted is something that we can’t seem to help doing. As sad as it may sound, I guess the answer to your question is yes, it takes something like death for people (and I include myself here) to stop and recognize somebody’s greatness. It took her death for me to go back and revisit her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner and I’m ashamed to admit I’d all but forgotten about it… Amazing stuff she will and SHOULD be remembered for.

I really sympathise for her death, but did it had to happen like this for people to remember who she use to be ? Whitney Houston’s prime was with the song “I Will Always Love You". Most of my friends remember her with that song and of course with the movie “Bodyguard". However, not all of her fans know that she use to be a junky. Whitney failed at one of her concerts, because she was out of breath. All of this came out NOW, after her death. MJ had the same case. Before his death many speculated against him for various things, but after he passed away all started crying. That sickens me !
May her soul rest on peace.

In total agreement with you. I just love the entire arch of the storyline spanning both movies (Sunrise and Sunset) that detail two experiences that fascinate me. Really ‘meeting somebody, making a connection’ to quote Jesse and finding them again against the odds. I always love to hear that I’m not alone in cherishing the poem, the movies and the characters. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
