I think people are all different, but that for some of us music affects us emotionally more than visuals. I've come close to tears at the symphony and ballet before, so I know it's not just the look on the actors face (or even necessarily the plot and context).
I haven't seen any silent films - a few Chaplin movies, but always with music. The whole idea of watching a movie with no sound is strange to me, but I'm into the idea. Can you recommend any great (not necessarily tear-inducing) silent movies?
I'm a distant cousin of Singaporean pop sensation Dìck Lee. Bruce would have been a lot cooler but I'll take it.
Graves of the fireflies. Never though I could cry while watching an anime but this one almost had me balling. I think I shed one tear but my sis was like a freaking fountain sitting on the other couch.
then i guess it would make more sense to say chan is like the keaton of martial arts films.
and that Where the Wild Things Are trailer gets me a little misty. mostly because i just dont like seeing the Wild Things all sorrowful in the trailer. its like seeing your childhood heroes crying. and that arcade fire song was a good choice.
