I’ve been suffering from some pretty diabolical insomnia lately. For the past couple of weeks I always fall asleep just fine, but then I wake up multiple times during the night. The waking segments don’t last long, so technically I get enough hours of sleep, but because of the broken rhythm of it all I feel as if I’ve slept maybe half the total hours I actually have. The feeling is—and this is soon gonna become my most referenced scene of all time but whatever, when the shoe fits:

That’s how it all feels. ‘Everything’s a copy of a copy, of a copy.’ I’m not sure why it’s happening. I get enough exercise, I stay away from screens and I don’t eat too much or too soon before bed. Shrug. Must be some demon worryworm burrowing its way through my psyche, excreting doubt and fear wherever it goes. Some unprocessed anxiety must’ve birthed it and now it’s causing havoc in there. Curse you, mystery worryworm! Of what provenance be thou?! You rancid cockwomble, get out of me ‘ead.

Anyway I know we did a similar-ish thing recently, but AskReddit did another movie tropes thread, and it was a lot of fun to read in my current sleepless low battery brain operating state, so… ‘What ‘cinema sin’ is the most irritating, that filmmakers need to stop committing immediately?’ Full thread, here. Highlights, now!
