wednesday january 31

today i watched olympia, a documentary about the 1936 olympics, in a film class. at one point, during a sequence of highlights detailing the 10,000-meter race, three runners from finland overcame the japanese frontrunner, consecutively. one after another. as the japanese runner fell further and further back of these three, i experienced a tremendous urge to yell out "FINNISH HIM!"
