But the movie exploded with color. Emotion was in your face. Jumping from the screen. Sitting in the seat beside you. Trying to sit on top of you. Book and film are two very different media. I think Richard Matheson came up with an incredible story. And I think Vincent Ward and the cast and crew of the movie brought it to life.
Maybe I'll feel differently when I finish the book.
Maybe I won't.
But I will never forget how watching the movie What Dreams May Come was part of my re-entry into a world that I felt very ambivalent about re-entering for a very long time.
I read. I write. I watch movies and t.v. shows. I listen to music.
To feed my inner life.
Because in the end, all we have is what we imagine and my soul needs to eat.
