Journal Journal: The Pianist

I just watched the Pianist. Unbelievable. I've heard it compared to Schindler's List- it's not. I've heard it compared to Saving Private Ryan, it's not. It's an unbelievable mixture of pain, suffering, hope, and strength... powered by a detachment to the realm of the beauty of music.

I wish I could write more eloquent about the setting, the director, but I can't. I'm just dumbfounded that everythign that happened was allowed to happen... and incredibly saddened by the loss that is suddenly apparent.

There is no likelihood man can ever tap the power of the atom. -- Robert Millikan, Nobel Prize in Physics, 1923
