Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.

Greetings from an English 21-year-old Architecture graduate/survivor. Currently working as an architectural assistant. I adore Morrissey, tea, classic films, reading, poetry, autumn, wine and Italy. I have too many improbable ambitions.

Sometimes awful things have their own kind of beauty.

14. A Single Man [2009]

dir. Tom Ford

"Let’s leave the Jews out of this just for a moment. Let’s think of another minority. One that… One that can go unnoticed if it needs to. There are all sorts of minorities, blondes for example… Or people with freckles. But a minority is only thought of as one when it constitutes some kind of threat to the majority. A real threat or an imagined one. And therein lies the fear. If the minority is somehow invisible, then the fear is much greater. That fear is why the minority is persecuted. So, you see there always is a cause. The cause is fear. Minorities are just people. People like us."

It takes time in the morning for me to become George, time to adjust to what is expected of George and how he is to behave. By the time I have dressed and put the final layer of polish on the now slightly stiff but quite perfect George, I know fully what part I’m supposed to play.

"That particular scene, where George is dressing in the morning, is not something that’s in the book, but George is distraught. He’s in a terrible, terrible, deep depression. When I am in a terrible, deep depression, one of the things that I do is put on a suit. It might be false, but I feel like if I shine my shoes, I put on a tie, I make myself look as good as I can possibly look, that I feel better, that somehow it’s armour. It’s a ritual that I go through." - Tom Ford

“A few times in my life I’ve had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp. And the world seems so fresh as though it had all just come into existence. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be.” - A Single Man (2009)

But ‘now’ isn’t simply ‘now’. ‘Now’ is also a cold reminder: one whole day later than yesterday, one year later than last year. Every ‘now’ is labeled with its date, rendering all past ‘nows’ obsolete, until — later or sooner — perhaps — no, not perhaps — quite certainly: it will come.
