Most of the country doesn’t get his movies. I’m not sure why. They always cover a meaty topic, and usually point out that love is hard to keep and life usually leads to loss and heartache – and then you die. Maybe the Jewish guy from New York intellect is not the issue – maybe he is too pathetic, sad, and whiny for America to embrace.
It’s hard to be happy all of the time, or for many, even some of the time. To be happy is to at least not be in pain or in need of something. But it’s not just a state of needing or wanting something or of avoiding bad things. To be happy is to be so for a reason, because something or someone makes you smile and feel good. If we just settle or remain ignorant, we’ll likely be happier, but not necessarily more satisfied and accomplished. But if we question everything and don’t remain satisfied for more than a moment, we’ll always feel unhappy and incomplete.
