最近では、タランティーノの新作「ワンス・アポン・ア・タイム・イン・ハリウッド 」がそういう映画だった。60年代のカルチャーや当時のハリウッドに対する愛情を、細部に渡る作り込みで表現し、それを目の当たりにしていると数十分でもう満足、こんなにしてくれてありがとうという気持ちになってくる。

“Want to know how to make yourself instantly unhappy? Compare yourself with someone else.”
Fumio Sasaki, Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism

“We are more interested in making others believe we are happy than in trying to be happy ourselves. —FRANÇOIS DE LA ROCHEFOUCAULD”
