If we don't "go to the movies" in any form, our minds wither and sicken.

The future of affirmative action; what it means to be "Pro-Putin"; Jaws the Revenge, re-shredded; James Gandolfini, cautionary tale; Isadora Duncan's forgotten art; getting to the bottom of that mysterious Mad Men poster; Roger and Gene rave about Star Wars on Nightline.
Q. In your review of "The Cell" you described the outfits worn by Jennifer Lopez and others while voyaging into the minds of patients as "virtual reality gear." I think the opposite was the case. The outfits were probably worn by the characters to completely desensitize them from the external world so that the therapy could not be interrupted. That's probably also why they were suspended in mid-air. During the therapy sessions the characters did not move their bodies at all. If they were wearing virtual reality gear their bodies, conceivably, would have been mimicking their movements. (Jordan Potasky, Toronto)
