The Unbearable Lightness of Being

“Before I was shot, I always thought that I was more half-there than all-there. I always suspected that I was watching TV instead of living life. People sometimes say that the way things happen in movies is unreal, but actually it’s the way things happen in life that’s unreal. The movies make emotions look so strong and real, whereas when things really do happen to you, it’s like watching television—you don’t feel anything.” — Andy Warhol.

  1. I remember scenes from the movie (The Unbearable Lightness of Being, 1988) but I don’t remember the month before or month after seeing the scenes with Daniel Day-Lewis and Juliette Binoche. Andy Warhol made an astute observation.
