I just finished watching se7en. I've been catching up on all the movies that I was meant to watch in the dusshera break because I fell ill then, and I've been watching some fantastic movies, at that :D


Anyway, so se7en is about the seven deadly sins, now its a good movie and everything, quite a thinker, but more than that, I was intrigued during the groundwork i was doing for the "before movie" watching.. ( I do that before watching any movie). I was on a wikipedia seach for Dante. I couldnt find any of his works online, but reading up about him, and everything got me thinking. I was discussing this with Best Friend yesterday, although the concept of courtly love is largely patriachal, I'd love to be on the receiving end of it. Ofcourse, speaking in strictly selfish terms, I'd have to aristocratic and the man preferably a knight. And I don't want to replay the "knight in shingin armour thing", just the poetry/sonnet dedication. Like Dante did for Beatrice and Petrarch for Laura.


We did Sidney's "star crossed" love poetry last year in my course. I think I was the only one who understood the deepness of it, and didn't brand it as cliched. See, now Spenser was cliched and a fucking MCP. But Sidney, I think, took advantage of the woman's silence, didn't deliberately silence her... ? Okay, I know, the bunch of them... all men in the 14 th century were patriarchs, but imagine the hotness :D I'd love to have someone recite to me, poetry that was written to worship me, it's my ultimate "heart melting" secret.


I came to a very satisfying conclusion a few days ago, about my torturing self questioning. I realized that i'm wasting my time cribbing over something that eventual and inevitable.. only not coming fast enough. So I've realized that I've got to make the most fo the 3 months I have, before I graduate :(

{I'm not letting myself think about it, I don't want to be a fucking adult, or drive or legally be able to drink. I would rather remain a kid}


See, now, had I been in the 14th century, I'd have been married by now. That sucks.

Ram: pooh. go away.

Scribblers: arre, who said I'd have to wear the 3 ton costumes :) I've conveniently only extracted the poetry bit of the 14th century!

You seem to have been living in the 14th century. You're getting around to watching Se7en now.

ahaan u ain't even 21. :-)
myriad of emotions i say.

V said...

Yes but I saw it when I was 17. Takes a certain level of intelligence not to miss such good movies even at an early age.

S said...

Utopia: :)

V: 10 years ago... Back then, I was too busy using my intelligence to make fun of 17 year old boys like you who watched movies because they had no life.

v said...

Even a 10 year old can come up with a better retort. You disappoint me.

PS: Happy Diwali.
