It's the height of this artist's expression
Just a flight up the stairs from confession
From the tip of the top
A precipitous drop
To a frightening arc of obsession.

Fabulous as always--and I love the saturated color in the stills!

Thankfully there are many intrepid screen-grabbers on the internet from whom I can pilfer these fabulous images.
