How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
I’m in love with Pen-eak’s works when I watched “Last Life in the Universe“. I will not express my opinion about the movie here, because this blog entry is not about the movie. When I heard that there is a book which concludes some interview with Pen-eak, and the writer is Worpoj Panpong, I deadly want to read it. So, I bought it and asked a sister of mine to ship it from Bangkok, of course, I asked her to read it also, and she likes it.
Who is Pen-eak ? I believe the easiest way to answer this question is to watch his movies. Of course, I don’t know him personally, but from his interview, his personality which is expressed in the book is very similar with his movie. I didn’t say that he’s perfect or his movies are perfect. There’s many down-side of his life and also some holes in his movies. But, well, as we know, human are imperfect. The different between human and computer is our imperfection. The different between real life and story in movie is also the imperfection of our life. His life is also.
The point is, he accepts his imperfection and lives with it peacefully. Sometime, we know that we’ve problem or short coming in our life, but we just don’t accept it. We should not seek for a perfect life; instead, we should seek a way to live with our life, even it’s imperfect.
Life is a long journey and it’s shorter than we thought. When you found an imperfection in your life, sometime, fix it, sometime, accept it and live with it.
