A Letter To A New HBO Movie

Dear Hemingway & Gellhorn,

Do you believe in love at first sight? Because you have swept me off of my feet.

And please trust me, I’m not your typical TV watcher. I’m relatively unimpressed with Game of Thrones, True Blood, Boardwalk Empire and even Entourage. The Sopranos barely scratched my surface.

But Hemingway & Gellhorn, I have fallen for you as if you were cut from the same cloth as Casablanca.

“There’s nothing to writing Gellhorn, you just sit at your typewriter and bleed.” This line, delivered in the middle of the masterpiece that you are, inspired words of my own:

Movies are better than real life because they wake you up to real life.

But allow me a moment to woo you with Ingrid Bergman, “No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight of the soul.”

With love and gratitude,


“In Live Like a Fruit Fly, Gabe Berman shares his recipe for living a more joyful,worthwhile, and abundant life in every way. A witty, entertaining, and insightful read.” ~Deepak Chopra

  1. Gabe, thanks for sharing! I realized in reading this post what it is that is unique about you as an author, and why your work is so refreshing to read. Bear with me a moment as I explain.

    Some people can walk through a garden or meadow inspired by the individual beauty of flowers to pluck, collect, and bring home, then stuff into a vase. The result is a collection of flowers; each flower possesses its own beauty, but the collection is nothing more. In the eyes of a designer, that same collection of flowers becomes a masterpiece of art, worthy of placing in the foyer of the Four Seasons Hotel or a subject for painting by one of the masters.

    That is how I see you with words~an artist or designer. You collect individual thoughts expressed by others…and because of your perspectives…you associate and weave them in such a unique way as to bring deeper meaning to the individual messages than any one author is able to express.

    Thanks again! Keep collecting, designing, and inspiring! #LLAFF
    Peace brother!

  2. Sits at the typewriter and bleeds… WOW, that is truly when the best work is indeed done.
