Bong Joon-ho, “Parasite.”

There is nothing romantic about oppression, least of all for the oppressed. Yet some of the privileged side with the oppressed anyways.

Waiting.

The line between ridiculous and romantic is fine. And only the heart can draw it.

Pairing.

Mystic and romantic writers should be enjoyed in the morning. Rationalist and enlightenment arguments should be read at night.

A sage withdraws from the world to find peace. A romantic withdraws from the world to find even greater turmoil.

Spacing affect.

Impossible distance and infinitesimal distance are romantic and revolting in equal measure. Between these extremes is the possibility of civil respect and personal reserve.
