The Shining bathroom scene minus Grady
I found this utterly fascinating. I couldn’t look away.
Okay, I’ll admit that anything “The Shining” related I’m more than a bit partial too.
But this is like being a fly on the wall, watching Jack’s slide towards insanity pick up speed.
And while that is occurring in the original too, somehow Grady’s physical absence adds some new layer to the scene that was never quite there before.
Now I suppose, technically, Grady’s audio maybe shouldn’t be there either. But, as the editor Richard Trammell said, his existence is somewhat murky anyway.
And I honestly couldn’t imagine not having Stone’s dulcet tones in this scene.

I may be off base. But I'm going to go out on a limb here. I've seen FAR more support being expressed for Pelosi than bashing out there. I think, in this case, the ageist, sexist folks have been drowned out by those who appreciate all she's done for us. This pleases me.
@faryl Oh my gawd *swoon* they're adorable.
