You Are @

Cinematic Truth?

Ultimately this site will be a series of links that discuss the answers that we've found in an art form that is such a major part of every urbanite. Though the truth that is in a poetically written novel, or in the brush strokes of a painting, or in the musical story will never lessen, those of us who live in a city have come to know the entertainment of the movies, and when we are lucky, the beauty, truth and artistry that come to us in the cinema. Sometimes it can be a single line, other times it is the whole work. In any case these are truths Jake Fier and VSL have seen and are putting down here.
As of summer 2003 I have only begun writing these pages, but then you knew this.

There are not many films that are as filled as the Matrix is with lines that apply to life:
You think that's air you're breathing?
There's a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
Get up Trinity, get up now.
The Blue Pill: Once you've made the choice you can never go back.
Why is this happening to me?
You hear that Mr. Anderson, that is the sound of inevitability.

Why do my eyes hurt?

Because you're using them for the first time.
