But now..for me.. I am now dry and empty for a bit.Posted by Chinaski (here)
Carmody, i was certain that i was the only one who sat around tearing up as i watched clips of these great historical epics
i'm not an overly emotional person but the ending of 'The Last of the Mohicans' gets me every time. The father kicking ass in vain to get to his son, who is being slain by 'Magua'...whew. His 'white son' having his back, allowing him to avenge his son's death on the mountaintop unimpeded. Then the girl leaping to her death over the cliff...man, i well up a little every time i see it. never gets old.
After about 140 years of not letting that go, it is finally going. I am finally burned out on romanticism. I'm very sad to let it go, it's been a very close friend, for a very long time. But gone, it has. I'm happy that others can get something out of those films..and up to about two weeks ago, I was right there, being the same, for the past 47 years. About two weeks ago, or less...it started ...and it finally sunk in, all the way.
