Jon Keller's "Of Sea and Cloud"

I’m not much of a movie watcher—though I love them, I don’t live in a place conducive to watching many. I now live aboard a boat, and before that in an isolated cabin, so my power supply is limited, as is my internet service.

That said, the actor that pops into my head concerning Of Sea and Cloud is Daniel Day-Lewis as Osmond Randolph. I see Osmond as a huge, epic sort—ideally, of a stature akin with “The Butcher” in Gangs of New York. They look a bit the same, too, now that I think about it…
