A great film takes you beyond your limits to a place exclusive to the individual; to a world you can become lost in. When all the components of film come together to produce that sensation of true "movie magic", your emotions belie your cognition and you experience something unique. It is a medium that commands the total surrender of the viewer, orchestrating a journey with every frame. Film holds the power to permit a moment between reality and fantasy, and it is this moment that defines its greatness.
