Then along comes Terry Gilliam, master of the absurd, to make it all so simple...
In answering a question, a story defines its meaning. Spielberg gives nice answers to hard questions, which is why he has a big house. Gilliam's answers are not so simple, but I know who i'd rather visit for dinner.
This is doubly poignant for me as we are currently looking for our own house upgrade. I need to remember to see these potential homes through the eyes of my 5 year old. He isn't interested in the size of the bedrooms, all he wants is to live close to his friends and have a patch of bamboo to make a cubby in.
