Sheesh, can you even make out stars' faces on such a tiny screen?

The trick, Mike, is to be within four miles of the screen.

It's good to know that Santa Claus is near by though. He never asks for money!

I just saw the film by renting it from Google Play (over my Roku on the TV) and I thought it was stunning. It's true that it goes off on the occasional tangent but I can understand the director wanted to get everything related to Dawson City and the film discovery told in context. I actually didn't dislike the music, only the occasional use of sound effects (a pet peeve of mine). However they weren't really overbearing. I do agree that the fonts were way too small, I was unable to read a majority of the years in the rediscovered films' titles and they did go by too fast, I was really curious as to what had been found. However, it's a small issue and I really look forward to seeing the film again and finding out more about the discovered films.

Saw it, loved it.

I may be wrong on this, but I think the intended music and edited imagery lifts the whole experience into a more mystical realm about time's passage and the quirks of fate. Conventional narration would have made it, well, more ordinary.
