Walk the line....

....That's better. A great film, good sound and still good sweets.
Tonight Doug, Liam and I went to see Man On Wire, a film
of archive footage and documentary style clips following Frenchman
Philippe Petit and his wire walking feats of genius. It culminated in
'le coup' - walking between the Twin Towers in New York. It was a
breathtaking 90 minutes in the very sense of the word, Petit both
uplifting and inspirational with his enthusiasm and single minded
nature. It seemed, however to end on a rather sad note - once he
fulfilled his dream, it was like he became empty and disillusioned,
removing himself from the friends, colleagues and lovers that had
helped him achieve the ultimate feat.
