spinning a cocoon

"he never complicates a desire by overthinking it, unlike mirabelle, who spins a cocoon around an idea until it is immobile"
-shopgirl, steve martin

love love love.

i love the film. full of all kinds of great things to note.

Ray Porter: As Ray Porter watches Mirabelle walk away he feels a loss. How is it possible, he thinks, to miss a woman whom he kept at a distance so that when she was gone he would not miss her. Only then does he realize that wanting part of her and not all of her had hurt them both and how he cannot justify his actions except that... well... it was life.
