    I am torn between Don Quixote and Don Corleone.

    Don Quixote is utterly romantic and I am very tempted to tilt at windmills.

    But then Don Corleone is a man of the world - a man of respect - a man of honour - and a man of authority, and don't you forget it for a moment.

    But what would happen if they met? What would they say to one another?

    And as one of our political plays is called, "Don's Party", perhaps we could invite them to Don's party and introduce them.

    ROFL.

    You're definitely Quixotic, V.

    It's true, I am Quixotic but my ambition is to be a man of honour like Don Corleone.

    But, come to think of it, they were both men of honour in their own way.

    I know what you mean about needing to sit for a moment after a film. My ISTJ wants to hit the door the minute the credits start to roll. But I feel as though I miss "digesting" it if I don't reflect for a while.

    And many times directors put something meaningful during or after the credits that casts a light on the whole thing.

    Never thought of it as a trance before, but I can understand that dreamy kind of state a good movie puts me in.

    The three Dons.

    And yes, I think there is a Don Juan movie.

    Yes, is a dreamy kind of state. And I like to enjoy it and wake up slowly. And integrate it into my mind.

    My mother was very good. She would wake me in the morning for breakfast. And I would like to wake up slowly savouring the hypnogogic trance we all pass through just after we wake or just before we fall asleep.

    In fact she was so good she would come upstairs not once, not twice but three times to wake me. And she was always gentle and good natured.

    She was particularly attuned to my enjoyment of the dreamy state or, as I say, the hypnogogic trance. It was an act of love.

    She allowed me to enjoy the dreamy state, before, as the poet Lorca wrote, the ants start to bite.

    So no wonder I like to repeat this experience at the movies which are, after all, a bit like sleep, where our belief is suspended and our critical mind goes to sleep.

    So I like to go to the movies and hold hands and afterwards be treated like a small, imaginative child.

    The movies are for me a delightful treat.

    The Visitor

    A very enjoyable independent film, it did very well at Sundance. It's a drama, but it comments on US immigration policy. The story follows a middle-aged depressed INTJ professor who visits his rarely visited spare apartment to find a 'illegal' man and women living there...... eventually he becomes close friends with them, he gets taught to play the drums and loosen up.... The immigrant man eventually gets detained and drama ensues. The lead INTJ character was great in this. I recommend it to anybody, very palatable.

    Corleone was also sort of a terrorist.
