The Latest Love

I am a man of very intense, though often short-lived passions. They come, I am obsessed for a while, and then suddenly they sort of vapourise away in an Ecclesiates sort of way. Sometimes the love returns after a year and I'll become obsessed again for a few more months. It's all very unpredictable.

Anyway, right now it's samurai movies. I've only seen a handful, but the love is quite strong. Akira Kurosawa is my new favourite director. He is absolutely amazing. I'm halfway through his epic Ran which is a sort of retelling of King Lear. It's jaw-dropping stuff.

You get obsessed too! Obsessions are great.
