I could try to annoy someone and go for Mulholland Drive, or for the recent super-duper-success Black Swan, but this is something that’s been bothering me for quite a while.

    Srsly. varianta a) ar trebui sa credem asta, dar n’avem cum, e jenant si e ridicol
    varianta b) este o gluma, nu e amuzanta in niciun fel, e jenant si e ridicol
    varianta c) este o chestie simbolica, nu’i iese, e jenant si ridicol.

    q.e.d.
