ET: Almanac

"I think that whenever an artist (and this can apply to the word "artist" in the broadest possible sense), whenever an artist takes his eyes off the ultimate, an absolute, a positive, whenever he takes his eyes from what I would call "the Eternal," then he diminishes himself, and the quality of his art is thereby diminished."

- Jon Vickers (in an extraordinary interview with Bruce Duffie)

(Vickers doing the end of Otello, has anyone ever done it better?)
