>>7561834 Then I'm going to suggest A Sentimental Education. Frederic the protagonist falls for a the wife of another man, and spends most of his life yearning for her. A marvelously subtle theme in the movie is his failure to build his own identity. It suddenly reminds me of something I just read about internet addiction, that the addiction is less about the internet itself, and more about lacking an interesting life besides it. Also it's fucking beautiful. I can never read too much of it in one sitting, because I usually end up spending chunks of time reflecting on something I just read.
>>7561854 Oops I said movie. I've been writing about movies all day. Anyway, you should read the first chapter online. It sets up so many feelings, and though its always easy to sympathize with a man getting infatuated with a beautiful woman, it's even more believable when you see how he immediately idealizes her, as he is, a) a romantic and an artist, and b) kind of in a rut with his life.
