I saw this extraordinary film and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Bauby was amazing, and the film is beautiful. Imagine dictating a book by blinking each letter of each word.

The film is disturbing, yes, but well worth the disquiet. After all, we leave the movie theater able to walk, talk, make love, and flick a fly off our nose. I left the theater awed and grateful -- both for the experience of the film and for being able to return to my own blessed life.
