Hi John, thanks for sharing this.

So much about this script just pops. Brilliant stuff. Different experience reading the script as opposed to watching it because Daniel Day Lewis just overpowers everything, but I forgot how good the dialogue actually is. 'Be very, very careful where you turn in your travels, Eli.' He can't say he wasn't warned...

Great 'Heroes Journey' for Daniel too, although I can't think of less of a hero in the conventional sense.
