Movie Pick- Cold Souls

Paul Giamatti plays himself in this dramatic comedy about an actor burdened too much by his soul to continue acting in the emotionally demanding play that he is starring in. He reads about 'soul storage' as a way to lift the weight off his shoulders by extracting one's soul and storing it for later use. Intrigued, he undergoes the procedure and carries on with his life, relieved. But- he just isn't himself anymore (duh..) and he wants his soul back. The only problem is, is that his soul has been misplaced. Paul has to go on a journey to reclaim his soul or forever face a life of nothingness.

I like this graphic, very reflective of the movie's existential content.


"Happiness is not about making the people around you believe that you’re happy."


(Love that leopard fur throw!)

Time for extraction.

"-My soul is a chickpea?!"
"-They come in all shapes and sizes."

Something's missing here...

 A perfect visual representing Paul's predicament.

Between Paul and the doctor:
"-How are you feeling?
-Hollow.
-Good, that’s normal. What else?
-Um, well, maybe lighter. Ya, light and empty. And, uh, bored, maybe? Overall I feel great."
