For me, no words ever spoken on film have had more truth than this.

So, which is it for you? (1)

Too soon?

Too late?

Or on time?

Sadly, the first two.

Hopefully you got to experience it fully.

That in itself is living, and it's better to live.

I Know That! ;) (1)

Don't get me wrong. I don't regret anything. I just wish I had better timing.

Is it any wonder I've never been able to strike it big as stand-up comic?

I haven't seen your act, so I can't say.

Unless this *is* your act, in which case I concur. ;)

fortunately for you timing can be learned. i met a couple women too soon, with either of which i think i might have had a good lifelong relationship. of course i didn't realize it until it was much too late. later on i dated a woman who although a great person, was not a good a good lifetime match for me nor i for her. when my now wife came along i had learned enough to make it work. but without those other women i wouldn't have been able to realize the greatness of it until it had passed me by.

what i mean is that even if you were too late or too soon so far, the unknown future continues to march your direction. it could very well still be too early for you.

and while i haven't yet seen 2046, i must agree that zhang ziyi is very easy to watch.

I don't believe in Too Late, but then I'm the asshole that will steal someone's girlfriend.

There is no such thing as stealing a person who willingly goes with you.

TechnoLust (528463) | more than 7 years ago | (#16140088)

Good point. I guess whether or not it's an asshole thing to do depends on whether or not it's the person's girlfriend. :-)

That movie was SOOO boring (1)

Com2Kid (142006) | more than 7 years ago | (#16125654)

My GF and I fell asleep about 40 minutes into it. NOTHING happened. At all.

I am not surprised that it has some good quotes, given how much yapping they do throughout it!

Aw, but it had Zhang Zhiyi in it. (1)

Cliff (4114) | more than 7 years ago | (#16125962)

And I'll stop and watch anything with her in it. Even boring movies. It took me a while to get into it until I fell into the pace of the movie. It was Saturday night at 3am. I had nothing better to do. ;)

I loved this movie, it was slow and surreal and beautiful to look at. My friend Amy hated it. "Booooring!" she said. I'd like to see it again.

<hugs Cliffy>

haunting! There was just something that kept me watching it that night. Something about the characters that resonated with me. I'm glad I stuck with it, though.

I took some wisdom away from that story.
