If someone asked me to list my favorite movies I would include ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, ‘Gandhi’, ‘Zardoz’, ‘BladeRunner’, The Killing Fields’, ‘Reds’, ‘Lawrence Of Arabia’ and a few others. However, ask me what movie I most closely identify with and I would tell you ‘High Fidelity’ starring John Cusack. Played it again last night as my wife was watching NASCAR.(I don’t do sports on television or anywhere else) Previously several of Cusack’s asides during the movie spoken directly to the camera resonated with me. Well, I found a new one again last night. One of his speeches to his girlfriend ‘Laura’, that I probably heard a dozen times or more by now, suddenly got my attention and I sat there thinking how it applied to my life.
If you must know it was his comment about the “fantasy” never “delivering”.
