you-wish-you-had-this-url asked:
I've been seeing a lot of people talk about Gus sounding really pretentious in the movie, do you think he sounds pretentious?

fishingboatproceeds:

I mean, that scene is word-for-word from the book, so don’t blame the movie! :) Yes, Gus is super pretentious at the start of the story. it’s a character flaw.

Gus wants to have a big and important and remembered life, and so he acts like he imagines people who have such lives act. So he’s, like, says-soliloquy-when-he-means-monologue pretentious, which is the most pretentious variety of pretension in all the world.

And then his performative, over-the-top, hyper-self-aware pretentiousness must fall away for him to really connect to Hazel, just as her fear of being a grenade must fall away. That’s what the novel is about. That is its plot.

Gus must make the opposite of the traditional heroic journey—he must start out strong and end up weak in order to reimagine what constitutes a rich and well-lived life.

Basically, a 20-second clip from the first five minutes of a movie is not the movie.

(Standard acknowledgement here that I might be wrong, that I am inevitably defensive of TFIOS, that it has many flaws, that there’s nothing wrong with critical discussion, and that a strong case could be made that I should not insert myself into these conversations at all.)

Disclaimer: This post has neither a point nor an argument/opinion.

Last night, Ankur asked me if I only talk to Indian people, because the people I’d been talking about had all been Indian.

That got me thinking about how different my friend circle here is; in middle and high school my friend circle was primarily “the Asian nerds” as people liked to call it and my parents lovvvvvveeeeeedddd making an issue out of that. To which I’d always say that it really didn’t matter, I related most to these people and that’s why I was their friend.

And now I’m still going to say that for the most part it’s the same; Anita, Sarah, Kristy, and Deepika are my closest friends here and Deepika is an amazing and fantastic exception to my friend trend and I love her, but it seems as though I’ve accumulated a bunch of Indian friends. I think it’s because of the high concentration of the Indian population at Cal; at Gunn there was no one “Indian crowd” while here there is actually a high rise apartment building known as ‘Browntown’ because of their tendency to stay together. As a result, since I’m friends with like two Indians and am on the Kathak team, I suddenly know them all. And that’s super weird to me how that works out. I don’t know how I feel about the exclusiveness of the Indus/ISA crowd here.
