This is extraordinary. Just beautiful. I crapped my drawers from fear, however. Crackling black pine needle virus, arachnoid egg colonies, shivering ash beings (good God! the shivering!). What terrified me the most was the feeling that I would be powerless to alter any of what was happening by any means heretofore conceived by mankind. I guess I just realized the degree to which hope provides a key storytelling anchor in the movies we watch. Hope that a human – or even superhuman – being can affect change in the worlds filmmakers create. Well, NOT HERE.
