The Straight Story Revisited

I watched The Straight Story again today (David Lynch, 1999; starring the unforgettable Richard Farnsworth), and it moved me even more than the previous times I watched it. I think I am getting more sentimental as I get older. Angelo Badalamenti‘s soundtrack is absolutely beautiful, and Iowa has never looked prettier on film.

I’ll turn 34 in a couple of weeks weeks, and it isn’t easy. I only got a couple more years of childhood left…

Although I recommended watching it on a big screen in HD, for some mysterious reason it can also be watched on Youtube here.
