    I just loved the movie “Touched With Fire,” when I saw it in mid-February in Hollywood, California. I loved it so much that I am now hoping that it will win the Academy Awards in 2017.

    I loved this movie so much after it was over. To tell you the truth, that during the first or second scene when the guy’s father visits him in the dark, unheated studio apartment, filled only with books, I was able to relate–as books are my addiction too. The scene at the beginning with the gal reading poetry–also reminded me of me too…not in the good sense, that I was thinking of running out of the theater. The one thing that stopped me though, was that there was only one other person in the theater on an 80 degree, sunny day in Hollywood in February.

    The turning part in the movie for me were the romantic scenes when the gal and guy started dating in the Hospital. From there the movie became great! Having had similar experiences of being in that kind of hospital, and having issue dealing with meds–I thought that focus was a wonderful part of the movie. One really rallied behind the guy so that he would take his meds regularly for the gal.

    At the conclusion of the movie I was glued to my seat with the lists of all of the genius poets, the list of all the genius artists, the list of all of the genius musicians, etc. that also were Manic / Depressives. In one sentence if someone asked me what the main theme in this film was, I would answer, “It is about the fight to keep one’s artistic creativity active.” I give Touched With Fire 10 stars and am now waiting with baited breath for it to be released on DVD.
