I typically like to rewatch a film before writing about it, but I've seen Oliver Stone's JFK so many times in my life, that I don't really think it's necessary. I know the film like the back of my hand, having sat through it many times, exalting over its recreation of a historical period receding further and further away from us, as time moves on.

Fellini's Amarcord is a film I had not seen in twenty-five years; suddenly, though, I had the urge to watch it again, and many other Fellini films I hadn't seen in years as well. Perhaps I'll spend a month or two getting reacquainted with masterpieces such as La Dolce Vita, 8 and 1/2, Satyricon (my personal favorite), La Strada, and City of Women. Amarcord may not trump them all, but it is quite a slice of life: an image of a historical time and place, the little circle of existence as the viewer peers deep into it giving them a glimpse of other little circles. It is a testament to the power of humans to celebrate and dream, to fantasize escape in the midst of struggle and turmoil. Like the fireworks set off during the opening festival in the little Italian village at the beginning, these pops and bangs of human beings enact their weird, seemingly absurd roles, trapped in their dream of who they are, and dreaming all the while of Who They Wish to Be.

The Old Story of a Village Boy
Most of the children in my village go to school barefoot, without shoes, one reason for sure, is because we don't have enough money to buy shoes, besides that, when the rainy season comes, the unpaved roads in our village will turn like buffalo puddles because they are so muddy. I myself often wear flip-flops when I go to school. Likewise with school supplies, our book bags simply consist of plastic bags that have holes in the top two ends, we carry them on our backs like normal backpacks.
