And I quote:
"(Roeg) emphasised how unique cinema is in dealing with time present. Time present encompasses time past, time future, time imagined, memories, illusions, all of it passes as real, as present in front of you. I don't think there is any other medium, other than cinema, that does that; that immerses you in a time present which is a construct of the film makers all-making, really."

I do this with paintings too. I survey the expanded canvas and think how wonderful it must be to have so much space to explore an idea. I admire the way that some paintings are able to project outwards and construct a kind of emotional architecture of ideas and themes around them.

It is a piece that will mean the world and more to its intended recipient.
And I know that there is no other art form that can achieve what is represented here in silver, pearl, leaf and paper.
Each artistic endeavour has its own way of shifting perception, creating emotion, making a declaration (the list could continue ad infinitum). Each artistic endeavour creates its own 'magic'.
Danny Boyle has his way and I have mine.
