Hey brother- I went and saw your film last night at 7:45pm. I laughed, cried, I shifted to the edge of my seat, listening to the pain, the past, the hope & hopelessness, the pride, the proudness, the sarcasm, the need, the want for the one thing that matters in life- Love. The touch of another. Holding hands down a path which leads in infinite directions but isn't intimidating when u have that "one" with you beside you. Your relationship with him (the neighbor, the friend, the mirror image of your character at that age) and the look you gave when you said "Father" to the nurse- tore me up inside. All of the characters were connected to each other thru the gift of giving. Giving- Though labelled difficult, hard, impossible, you captured our world and all it's flaws and proved theories and beliefs false with your endless tour to find, connect, re-connect with/to love and with that came the end of the nightmare(s) and the gift of the dream and to be loved. The man in the mirror. Past present future.
Sorry for my snippets of thoughts/words. I knew I had to write you for many reasons but didn't know or think of what I was gonna say but i do know i send u a huge congrats, a very heart felt and a very sincere thank you for creating, and sharing with me and the many others who have & will see and experience your gift.
