A couple of nights ago I watched The Natural (1984) again. I didn't watch it because it's been called one of the best baseball movies ever made. I watched it because I really liked the story.
There is one line in the movie that stayed with me when I first watched it. It's delivered by Glenn Close/Iris to Robert Redford/Roy in the hospital toward the end of the movie.
She tells him her theory that people have two lives: the life they learn with and the life they live after that.
Redford/Hobbs delivers another line in that exchange, he hopes that one day people will say " There goes Roy Hobbs, the best there ever was" (inspired by Ted Williams).
Movies bring together many visual elements with sound and motion to document the stories of our time.
