the sad & the beautiful

sad words are just another beauty. a sad story means, this storyteller is alive..."
-chris cleave

i find such beauty in sadness...it is such a strong emotion to me, and i love seeing this in films. maybe it's because a sad story is more profound and makes more of an impression. or maybe i'm just a sucker for those melodramatic tearjerkers. it's an amazing feeling to get such a powerful impact from just watching a 1.5 hour film.
