#036: The Wages Of Fear

criterion35HENRI-GEORGES CLOUZOT

1953

I’ve witnessed some heated debates about movies and now, in the social mediaverse, I witness them on a constant basis, and it reminds me of the period in time when I was someone who also would get very upset if people didn’t love a movie that I thought was great.  Of course it must be because they don’t know what I need to teach them!  Learning to let all that go, and to simply enjoy things alone and allow disagreements to stand, has been an important learning process for me, and has also removed so much stress from my life.  One of the important turning points was when I suggested a friend of mine host a screening of The Wages of Fear and, for some reason, felt responsible for making sure everyone liked it as much as I did.
