Source: someauthorgirlThe movie knows little and cares less about how people fall in love.
So take the film on its own titular terms. What does Love Actually tell us about love, actually? Well, I think it tells us a number of things, most of them wrong and a few of them appalling.
You know nothing, Christopher Orr. Love is appalling, actually, as is most of human behavior. Sure, it’s about these awkward and appalling things happening to fairly well off cispeople who are quite pretty. However.
Love, Actually affirms that human behavior is complicated and generally terrible. It affirms that sometimes you find someone you want to be with, who wants to be with you, and it still doesn’t work out. It affirms that sometimes it does. It affirms that sometimes the greatest love of your life isn’t going to be someone you go to bed with.
Specifically, it affirms that you never, ever fuck over Emma Thompson. That if you need to cry, Joni Mitchell is gonna do it. That one of the most celebratory things a human being can do is shake their own ass to the Pointer Sisters. Finally, that the better decision is to throw your phone out the window and always, always fuck Karl.

Chino Otsuka : Imagine Finding Me
Chino Otsuka uses photography and video to explore the fluid relationship between the memory, time and photography. At age 10 she moved from Japan to the United Kingdom to attend school. Her experience of becoming familiar with a new place, a different language and new customs while she was developing her adolescent identity has profoundly shaped her work in photography, video and writing. Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits, with images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. As Otsuka says: “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine, as I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.” - via AGO

the other day we were discussing dating and this one dude was like “I don’t see the big deal why can’t people just ask people out without all the fuss” and another guy was like “well you get nervous and you get butterflies in your stomach ya know” and the first dude looked the other dude straight in the eye and said “DIGEST THEM.”
