So I've watched Skyfall twice now, trying to get a handle on how best to write about it.
It is rich, it is lush, it is too much for one post.
There are no opposites.
Everything is in shadow.
Damage comes from revelation, not concealment.
A transition is simply the moment when the transitioning elements cohere.
Life is betrayal.
Happiness is an illusion.
The comfort of modernity, of civilization, is predicated on a lie.
What is the ecosystem of betrayal?
One wonders if, after the helicopters pick up Silva on the island of Hashima, Bond didn't take one more taste of the 50-year-old Macallan. One wonders if Bond is deliberately shaking when he points the gun at Severine.
What are we at the core?
