• Up early; to work.
  • Watched the original version of Brazil from Netflix. Way better than the “Love Conquers All” version, even if the ending is more of a downer. The edited version loses all the “artsy” stuff (as Emily calls it): the dream sequences where Lowry is an epic hero who fights monsters and rescues the damsel, which makes a huge contrast to the “real” world where he’s a cog in the machine, timid and ordinary, and which provides him the inspiration to become something more.
