Just re-watched one of my favorite foreign films (Samaria aka Samaritan Girl) directed by the best director in the world – Kim Ki-Duk, and it had me wondering. What is a samaritan? An inhabitant of Samaria? Or perhaps someone that seeks out to help others in a time of distress. Of course both are correct but the latter really helps me to reflect on a question of what we are doing with ourselves? Ultimately, we all want to live in harmony. With that said, everyone needs to advance in this world in order to get to our next destination. What’s the destination? Who knows. But I suppose life wouldn’t be a thrill without the uncertainties that has us looking back and saying, “What a ride that was!” I do get ahead of myself though…sometimes. I think I just need to sit back and enjoy the movie for what it is and not get too caught up with the intricacies while listening to some classical music. That sounds soothing.
P.S. Kwak Ji-Min is amazing and I’m definitely a fan!
