"See what you could’ve had Keith, if you hadn’t talked about weed all the time"
"Nebraska" (2013) dir. Alexander Payne.
This is so symbolic. No matter how strong and invincible we think we are we are nothing without the generations that came before us. The ones that were physically pushed off their land, the ones that will die without seeing a free Palestine. It seems as though they’re the ones that should be broken, but they’re the ones that are helping us get back up and everything we do is because of what they’ve taught us.
"I’m goddamn plucky, remember?"
Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), dir. Guillermo del Toro
A long time ago, in the Underground Realm, where there are no lies or pain, there lived a princess who dreamt of the human world.

not Criterion-related, but like… sometimes the world just has to *know.*
