I had a classic film geek moment yesterday morning. There are some movies that, regardless of how many times you've seen them, will pull you in yet again if they happen to be on television. If you can't see the whole film, a sequence will suffice as a must-see. Even if I don't have time see the whole film, I'm happy if I can catch the first 20 minutes of Giant directed by George Stevens. I love how Stevens visually communicates that we're in for a saga and love story that will cover one generation into the next. He does it with modes of transporation. Under the credits and the muscular Dimitri Tiomkin score, we see Texas cattle on vast arid land with a pool of water. This is Benedict territory.
