My friend, you suffer from a misplaced optimism of the doom.
Snowpiercer | Bong Joon Ho, 2013
“Then I felt that every inflection of my voice, every word in my mouth, was a lie, a play whose sole purpose was to cover emptiness and boredom. There was only one way I could avoid a state of despair and a breakdown. To be silent. And to reach behind the silence for clarity or at least try to collect the resources that might still be available to me.”
— Ingmar Bergman, Persona (1966)
