I watched “There Will Be Blood” for the second time last night and I’m starting a review. To sate your desire for thoughts on Paul Thomas Anderson I pass on this link.

“Covetousness, greed, lust for ownership, is only -is precisely- the perversion of care. It is the love not of things or people, but of having.”

-Francis Farrar Capon, Bed and Board

“We are not a materialistic age at all. We would be better off if we were. We are the most devilishly spiritual of all ages: Poor old matter, like poor old flesh, takes a bad drubbing. Far from caring too much for it, we are forever busy beating it out of its natural shape into fetishes and status symbols which are more to our liking.”

-Francis Farrar Capon, Bed and Board
