To get a full objectivity, to have an entirely new view of a particular work, to study its expressiveness and see if the color elements are as sharp as I want them . . . looking at work upside down often provides the final happy surprise.

We saw the movie "P.S." (2004) last night, with the amazing and beautiful Laura Linney. She may be one of the most underrated actresses working today.
