Back to civilization. No internet, no tv, no heat besides the woodstove so Tom Cruise in "Minority Report" came in handy. I had no idea what a good movie it is so we watched it twice over the weekend. Last week I saw TC on Bravo's "Inside the Actors Studio" which was a special 2 hour interview celebrating (I think) 10 years on air for the show. It was a great interview about TC and his life and his approach to acting. In the last minute of the show, he leaned forward and shared this great quote:"A culture is only as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamt by artists.". It was really very moving. Great interview, great movie. "The Last Samurai" was really good but it took a few minutes for me to see the character instead of TC. Not so with "Minority Report" or "Far and Away", by the way.
Nice to be back to civilization, though.
