Nice line about movies

By Zack Handlen in the November 2, 2009 Onion AV Club review of The Seventh Seal:
"I’m coming to realize that the difference between a good movie and a great one are those moments of intense personal connection where it seems like the filmmaker is reaching out to you through the screen and whispering (or yelling, or cajoling, or demanding, or pleading) in your ear. As if there is no real distance between you and the director, time has changed nothing, and the moment remains as pure as it was on the day it was filmed."
Note, the same can be said for any of the narrative arts (books, theater, uh, tweets).
