In an era where some of the most popular movies are either completely or just mostly computer animation, many great acting performances are heard rather than seen. I don't know if there is anything really wrong with this, but then again I don't know that there isn't, either. It's one of my "ponderables."
I'm on the fence about it; just as I am on the fence about whether elaborate, motorized sets make for better musicals. It doesn't seem to me that they do, but I cannot deny that they can enhance the experience almost as often as they detract from it.
But what about the motorized ingenue?
That thud you just heard was me falling off the fence.
