We are more belligerant, more stubborn, and more idiotic than you can possibly imagine. And I am not just talking about Gary.
The Kills-Studio In Session
the price we pay for our advance in civilization is a […] heightening of the sense of guilt. […] ‘conscience does make cowards of us all’. […]
Our patients do not believe us when we attribute an ‘unconscious sense of guilt’ to them […]. We tell them of an unconscious need for punishment, […] there are types of patients […] who only feel it as a tormenting uneasiness, a kind of anxiety, if they are prevented from carrying out certain actions. […] It coincides completely with fear of the super-ego

You can’t define this film as good or bad because it’s insignificant. It’s more about the experience. The conversations are an example of success because then you know whatever you’ve done has resonated. The line between love and hate is so fine.- Nicolas Winding Refn
The young, the silly youth who feels love and cares, for the new and is onto the best time, for the sake of having it.
The few who stay at the grass looking at the sky and feeling the world around.
The ones who were in love and have a nostalgic feel toward places, smells and songs.
The wild youth, the reckless and awkward kids, lost in time and worry for nothing, just for the moment…
…the moment is now.
the Law in general […] cannot be rationally motivated since it would then be subordinate to reason and so lose its absolute authority. The Law can retain that authority only by being a resounding tautology (‘The Law is the Law!’), an empty signiﬁer
