If anyone was wanting insight into the state of my mind during the viewing of my own film, I stumbled across a pristine example. Posted below are notes I took while watching an edit of The Oath back in January [19th, to be exact]. For some reason, I typed these in the computer. So they, unlike a novel of hand-written notes now residing at the local landfill, have been saved for posterity.
I don't even know what many of these mean anymore, which I guess is a good thing.
