‘Please, don’t stand too close to me…’

Not the movie that I know it from, nor the performance (which isĀ The City of Lost Children and Marianne Faithfull) but something about this version and these visuals are speaking to me more than those originals right now.


This is extraordinary. But, beware, because it’s also full of big, sad feels. Which, if you’re empathetic, you might enjoy…

I’m not sure about that idea of pleasure in/from the sadness. I’m not sure that ‘it exists at a safe distance’. But it is beautiful.
