    Village 8 Louisille Exclusives presents 'Rust and Bone'
    Print this page

    The world will never run out of love stories. Never. There is too much. Too many ways to explore this theme. It's irresistible. Love is such an intense emotion; it inspires artists, it makes people Feel Things. We are speaking of romantic love here, by the way. It is important to specify. There are so many different kinds of love, but only one word for them. It's inconvenient. I love my daughter (by the way, is the only instance of true and complete unconditional love I have ever experienced; it's beautiful). I used to be married – I loved her, but in a different way; this went away. I love members of my immediate family – tentatively. It's complicated. I love certain of my friends I consider brothers (one in particular is practically unconditional). But we are here to talk about romantic love, and friendship. One of my all-time favorite love stories is F.W. Murnau's 1927 silent film Sunrise.

    It is about love thought lost and rekindled. It is beautiful. Simply beautiful.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
