I finally got around to watching Skyfall1 last weekend. In one scene, Bond is asked about his hobbies. “Resurrection” is his reply.2 It reminded me of a catchphrase I devised in the past: “Practice resurrection”. It was catchy, but not knowing what it meant made it rather hard to use. Now I’ve got a better idea. It goes hand in hand with the goal of making mistakes.
Fall. Get up. Fall. Get back up again. “Practice resurrection.”
A thrilling, and also deeply disturbing film. I’m referring to the scene in which Bond slips, uninvited, into the shower of an abused woman deeply in need of help, not sexual partners. ↩
In the opening scenes Bond is shot and falls a great distance from the roof of a train into waterfalls below. Everyone believes him dead. ↩
