Michael: I would bet you that that happens a lot more often than you think, you know? You know, some guys goes and marries some whacko and then he becomes a whacko and then his whole life goes and becomes a living hell, you know?
Dom: Mikey! What are you thinking, huh? Huh? You comparing this to you and Donna? You’re nuts, buddy.
Michael: You’ve never been in this situation, Dom. With a wedding and all. Forget about it. Suddenly everything becomes very, very complicated. You know, it’s like, she’ll talk to me and she tells me stuff and she says it’s important and I don’t even know what the fuck she’s talking about. It really makes you feel like you’re losing control.
Dom: Mikey, you ain’t losing control over nothing. You’re getting married. A person’s gotta adjust to certain things.
Michael: What if I can’t adjust?
Dom: When you’re in love with somebody, you adjust.
Michael: Dom, I just don’t want to end up hating my life.
Dom: You’re not going to end up hating anything. So forget about it, all right?
I saw this for the first time a few weeks back. It is Jane Campion’s feature film debut and it is fucking gorgeously shot. Shout out to cinematographer Sally Bongers for capturing Campion’s unique vision! It’s also really fucking bittersweet and strange. That said, I don’t really want to spoil the twists and turns too much, so mostly I’m going to focus this week on some arresting shots that have haunted me for the last few weeks.
