How I feel today
Reminds me of the first time I saw Star Wars, which was when it was re-released in theaters. I went home and cried afterwards because I was overwhelmed with how awesome it was as a film and how tragic and awful it would be to be any of the characters. It was that movie, and my emotional response to it that first really got me interested in film.
I don’t know that many people have found A New Hope to be a heartwrenching experience, but I really did. I guess a lot of things are profound when you’re 13, but as much as I’ve managed to block from my teenage years, that inconsolable sadness is something I think I’ll never shake.
