The release of Sharon Clare’s Love of Her Lives has me thinking of fated lovers, destined to live, and love, for eternity.
Sometimes, a story takes you on a journey far from the truths you hold dear. Sometimes, you have to suspend your belief.
Like a never-ending merry-go-round, some believe we live our lives over again.
With black and white sequences, Dead Again explores this phenomenon we call reincarnation. The film, starring Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branagh, revisits a murder from the 1940s and brings noir film back to life, pun intended.
IMHO, Robin Williams has the film’s best lines. “Someone’s either a smoker or a non-smoker, there’s no in between. Trick is to find out which one you are, and be that.”
~Substitutes ‘smoker’ for ‘writer’, looks in mirror, drags self out of revision limbo.~
If we could live our lives over again, why would we? Why climb aboard the merry-go-round?
To continue our life journey?
To right past wrongs?
William’s character has another great line: “You burn somebody somebody in one life, they get a chance to burn you back in this one. It’s the Karma Credit Plan. Buy now, pay forever.”
Looking in my shoe closet, I wonder if I spent a past life bare foot.
Enjoy the trailer.
