    I love this dialogue. Sometimes, I can’t believe how into this movie I am…

    I love it that they are picking at this stuff.

    I think there is a fair sized difference between “does” and “is”.

    Greed is already an extreme state. Greed is a verb…of desire. I find this movie very interesting to watch with a Buddhist perspective. Do the desire is what is driving it’s already something, its already in the edge state.

    This is so interesting to me that Reiner is breaking down meaning with Malian…because I think Malian is already enlightened and aware…yet enlightenment isn’t really enough. Buddha was enlightened and yet…the struggle for women to practice during his life…and following for hundreds of years was still repressed saucety. He was enlightened yet he still had things to learn about beings and equanimity.

    The edge and being taken to the edge isn’t really such a positive thing. It’s exciting but it’s extreme. We know Malian is so wise when she says “truth has no temperature.” So it’s odd she doesn’t see that greed is an urge of extremism, not contentment or “resting temperature.”

    Greed is loss of composure, loss of wisdom and common sense. Giving into greed is not being at peace. Malkina is the high priestess of composure…so I love how they talk…and it sort of demonstrates what she sees in Reiner.

    I could kinda understand why the majority didn’t like this film due to how nihilistic it all is and how there’s no happy ending or anything but to me it’s just pure McCarthy bolstered by a great cast and a great director so, as a fan, it was perfect.

    I think it will be one of those films that in 10/20 years will be reassessed critically

    I hate this movie, but this scene is one of my favorite things McCarthy has ever done.
    How do you steal a god?
