relationship status: (drives through the night while 80s synthpop plays in the background)
Harry’s final line, “…you want the rest of your life to begin as soon as possible.” is reference to his inability to shake his fear of death throughout the film; his inability to love, his denial of love, but his constant need for intimacy and affection. Sally is willing to throw away her morals to be with the only man she believes still loves her; someone whom she has been waiting the whole duration of their friendship to want her back, as Sally is a desperate woman, guided by her despair to land a man before she grows old and dies all alone. Harry, realizing the severity of his greatest fear becoming reality and losing the only woman who feels even a remote sense of admiration from him, runs to her at the end of the movie to keep that reality from being achieved. It isn’t love. It’s self-preservation.
Designed to wilt.
Designed to decay upon birth.
Designed to count the hours until eternal sleep.
The time spent in petty dramas.
Sleeping with the wrong people.
Excessive alcohol consumption.
Wanting to be loved.
Begging to be left alone.
Writing a novel.
Building a fortress.
Caring for animals.
Murdering the innocent.
Smiling through sadness.
Ignoring the phone.
Watching the rain fall.
It all equates to something bigger than us all.
And we have no proof of any of it.
