Just watched La Haine, a black and white french film featuring with Vincent Cassel and Hubert Kounde. Really interesting, and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys french films, films featuring issues of hate crimes, or surrounding urban riots in the late 20th century. The cinematography were very well done, as well as how each character was depicted in their struggle to fight their own inner demons as well as exterior factors that continue to pull them into the violence, abuse and anger.

Sometimes I really believe my time is running out.
Lately I have been struggling with realness, or lack thereof. I wish I could confront those who exist in a world where they are not true with themselves, with others, and with the world around them. It is one thing to exist in a place of fairy tales, or even trying to create a perspective about a situation. It is another to try to fool others and yourself to become something that is sub-human. You cannot please everyone all the time (which, could be a paradox for this type of reflection), but you can embrace your humanity.
