Great watch. Best quote:

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

    • Yes indeed. With Leonardo! He’s always a bit too boyish but the visuals of the movie were awesome.

      And the quote hit me as I went here to Italy in part to revive a great trip for five months in 2006, sort of building the future based on the past, but it’s already become something completely new and different, and I love it.

      • I haven’t seen the new Gatsby yet, but I love Baz Luhrmann movies and how over the top they are. Sounds like I should see this one too.

        I’m glad your use of the quote is based on optimism. It always makes me feel a bit depressed, as it forces me to reflect on how trapped I am in the habits of my past 🙂

    • That’s a good point!
      I read the quote more as how life “normally” goes for us humans, and how most dreams are in large part drawn from memories of older dreams, but one can break free and experience true adventure! It’s much more fun living a life you’ve never expected!! 😀
