“Here the heavy heart, there non omnis moriar
just three little words, like a flight’s three feathers.

The abyss doesn’t divide us.
The abyss surrounds us.”

Wisława Szymborska, from “Autotomy”, translated by S. Barańczak and C. Cavanagh, in Poems New and Collected

Ratcatcher (1999)

“To associate with others is sheer torture for me. And the others are in me. I’m forced to associate with them even when they’re nowhere near. All alone, I’m surrounded by multitudes. There’s no escape possible, unless I were to escape from myself.” Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet (via depressionparty)

Echo Lake | Another Day

“…but I am a phantasm,
a phantasm beyond belief,
a phantasm to the core.”
Wislawa Szymborska, from Drinking Wine (via violentwavesofemotion)

“A man from nowhere, without a past, without a future, without a present. I wanted nothing; I was no one. I advanced step by step towards the horizon which receded with every step; drops of water sprang forth and fell to earth again, each instant destroying the last. My hands were forever empty: an outsider, a dead man. They were men, they were alive. I was not one of them. I had nothing to hope for.” Simone de Beauvoir, All Men are Mortal (via depressionparty)

Ratcatcher (Lynne Ramsay, 1999)


Lynne Ramsey is a filmmaker interested in the fragility of grief and the quite strength of the enduring individual. In each of her three intense character studies to date, her protagonist are always seen internalizing their pain as they try to find a way to move forward after the tragedy of death. Although never pulling any punches, her final images often offer a glimmer of hope with a nascent sense of acceptance or self-forgiveness. Or, in one case, showing the relief that comes with the sweet release of death. Can you guess which one it is?
