oh man these new lilting clips are causing my intense love for Richard to hit me hard all over again and i can’t wait for the film to be released so everyone can see the movie and consequently cry over the total and utter perfection of this character with me
"You said that?"
"I’ve just had enough Baby. I want us to get along."
"Skinny, I’m sorry. I’m not gonna squeeze your nuts any more."
"It’s just it really hurts. I might want to have kids one day."
From the matinee performance of Mojo on February 8th, 2014
(Please do not publish this as a link on twitter or tag it there with mojo because … well…. recording plays is a very bad thing *wink* )
another thing about Lilting: movies that talk about the Asian immigrant experience and marketed toward Western audiences are rare, and the ones that also talk about LGBT experiences are rarer still. (films dealing with Chinese diaspora/LGBT that come to mind are The Wedding Banquet, White Frog, Happy Together and Saving Face, for example).
so it is incredibly important that we support Hong, Ben and the creators by seeing the film in theaters and/or purchasing the DVD when it becomes available. because we need more films like Lilting, and buying a ticket and/or DVD shows demand, which will encourage Hong and other filmmakers to make them.
I know it’s tempting to pirate the movie (I’m sitting on my hands waiting for Strand to announce a US release date, for goodness sake), but please, please be patient and wait so you can support the folks who brought it to you.
couldn’t agree more
and believe me when i say it’s worth the wait
Hello, old friend, and here we are. You and me, on the last page. By the time you read these words, Rory and I will be long gone. So know that we lived well, and were very happy. And above all else, know that we will love you, always. Sometimes I do worry about you, though. I think once we’re gone, ‘you won’t be coming back here for a while, and you might be alone, which you should never be.
