    Some important data to put things into perspective:

    10 truths about Europe’s migrant crisis | UK news | The Guardian

    ... not calling it a migrant crisis when it's really a refugee crisis would be a good start IMHO.

    Has anyone seen a movie called Wild Strawberries?

    Was this sort of movie a thing? All these desperate existentialist themes.

    You mean the Ingmar Bergman movie? If so, yes, like all Bergman it is heavy on introspective, psychoanalysing dialogue and monologue and low on plot. Lots of general thoughts on life. It is considered one of his best though, a classic of auteur film and worth watching if you are into that kind of cinema - even though I prefer The Seventh Seal.

    I've always rolled my eyes at this pretentious frippery, but somehow I've become pretentious enough. I actually have plans to watch The Seventh Seal this weekend, after learning that this movie created the modern image of death.

    I watched the seventh seal first but I think I prefer wild strawberries now, could just be my frame of mind in the present moment, the dialogue is unconvincing, I mean unless everyone was reading and regurgitating the core themes of existentialists and popular responses to existentialism.

    I like the whole idea of aliveness vs. inertia (dont think its reduceable to life vs. death but the jargon would make you believe that) in wild strawberries, its simpler than all that though, guy feels he's living a sentence, the sentence is loneliness, has one real day of a reprieve from it when more than just his reminiscence of his younger days is there to comfort him in the form of the young hitch hikers and daughter in law's company.

    I've seen some hilarious send ups of his movies though. Some UK comedians did a great job on them.

    It's kinda old news, now. It'll take longer for a complete split but at least, it's happening!
