I was a huge Greenaway fan in my youth - to the point of freeze-framing Drowning By Numbers to catch each number as it flashed by on the screen - which paper was he in?

I just watched Drowning a couple weeks back with my wife. Hope she didn't get any ideas...

My quote is from "A Walk thru H," which I watched last week. That line just jumped out at me. I think you'd like the film, a metaphysical trip thru a map both imagined and real. Should appeal to the wanderer in you...
