Dialogic Cinephilia - May 25, 2020

"When you make love you're using up energy; and afterwards you feel happy and don't give a damn for anything. They can't bear you to feel like that. They want you to be bursting with energy all the time. All this marching up and down and cheering and waving flags is simply sex gone sour. If you're happy inside yourself, why should you get excited about Big Brother and the Three-Year Plans and Two Minutes Hate and all the rest of their bloody rot?" - Julia, in George Orwell's novel 1984 (Signet Classic, 1950: 133)
