How do they do it?
When I watch a movie I consider “good”, I am moved. I am moved to believe I am capable of greater things. I am moved to believe that life has a greater meaning that we tend to take for granted. Afterwards, I sometimes feel emotionally spent. Other times I feel emotionally charged. But most of all, I come away from the movie somewhat changed since going in. Sure, the change is mostly fleeting. But what kind of charge folks must get, knowing that they have created such a thing, a thing that can make an impression on so many people. I have just watched such a movie. It wasn’t the best movie I have seen, but it was above average. I won’t tell you which one it was; you’ll disagree and I’ll have lost all credibility – if I haven’t’ already (assuming I had any to begin with).
