Having finally seen The Diving Bell & the Butterfly, Julian Schnabel’s latest film, I was truly impressed. Clearly, his artistic voice is most eloquently translated in a directorial role. 

Paralysis, and imprisonment in one’s own mind are two of my absolute greatest fears.  Eight years ago I suffered a burst fracture of my L1 vertebra, narrowly escaping paralysis in the process.
I am thankful each day that I can go on living, breathing, feeling, touching, loving, and creating with both my mind and body.
The film is beautiful, terrifying, and inspiring – all that one could ask for from an artwork. If you haven’t seen it, the eye-closure scene alone is worth the rental fee.
