Life is Brief – #6

【写在前面】“我们常说激情是短暂的,爱的激情的确短暂,对于生活的激情却可以很长。”

#6 路边野餐

The Chinese director Bi Gan’s debut, Kaili Blues, contains among other cinematic oddities a forty-one-minute single take through the windshield of a car. (Don’t worry, the car is in motion.)

— The Paris Review

Kaili Blues is prefaced with a quote from the Diamond Sutra to the effect that Everything is Now. Past thought cannot be retained, future thought cannot be grasped, and present thought cannot be held. Go with the flow. It’s a fair warning.
