That's more like it

Thoroughly enjoyed: 'Stay,' with Ewan MacGregor, Ryan Gosling, Naomi Watts

Notable elements: Most exquisitely intense and creative scene composition, baffling and compelling plot, Great Depth Of Message, profoundly affecting soundtrack. Pretty Lady plans to order the soundtrack, though there is a danger it will depress her. Risks must be sustained on behalf of artistic expansion.

Much appreciated: The fact that the DVD carried no inane commentary about What It Meant or How We Shot This Scene. There was a most delightful and informative interview with the composers of the soundtrack, which drew attention to an art so exquisitely done that you did not consciously notice it at all.

Someone to watch: Despite his embarrassing name, Ryan Gosling quite compelled my attention. He does the Sensitive and Intelligent Youth to perfection. I also wanted to draw his profile, or at least run my finger down it.

Underlying Meaning: The world is, indeed, an illusion.
