John The Baptist: Love. What does it mean? Love is sweet as honey, but it’s also blood. Love is action. You want a new crop, you burn the earth.
Jesus: But isn’t love enough?
John The Baptist: No, no! Look at the world around you! Plague, war, corruption, false prophets, false idols, worship of gold! Nothing is of value. The tree is rotten. You have to take the ax and cut it down.
Jesus: If I was a woodcutter, I’d cut. If I was a fire, I’d burn. But I’m a heart and I love. That’s all I can do.

Lewis: You know, we don’t actually have to eat at all. I mean, I noticed the other morning you didn’t order any breakfast. I wasn’t sure if that was because you weren’t a breakfast eater. . .or because you thought I was gonna kill you.
Lisa: Yeah. . .I was. Actually, I’m starving.

Female Filmmaker Friday: Small, Beautifully Moving Parts, 2011 (dir. Annie Howell, Lisa Robinson)


This is a small, beautiful film I watched on Netflix a few months ago that really surprised in how simple, yet effective it was in its storytelling. It’s the only feature film from writer/directors Annie Howell and Lisa Robinson, which is a shame. It stars Anna Margaret Hollyman, who is known for starring in micro-budget films (The Color Wheel, White Reindeer). This is actually the first of her films I have seen, but I really enjoy her screen presence.

Marilyn Monroe: Why is Sir Olivier so mean? He talks awful to me, like he’s slumming.
Colin: I’ll tell you what’s wrong. It’s agony for him because he’s a great actor that wants to be a film star, and it’s agony for you because you’re a film star who wants to be a great actress. And this film won’t help either of you.

The Girl: If you say so.
