Film has had me in its firm but velvety grasp since I was a child. I'm old enough to have seen movies at a drive-in, when it wasn't a retro novelty. Because of this, I take the movie going experience to be almost religious in nature. There is something about a room of people, from all walks of life, participating in the shared human experience portrayed on the screen. There we all sit, bathed in silver light and for the briefest of moments, we are one.
