Film magic

Watched most of a second Stone TV movie and quit. Ordinary, none of the magic, especially visual magic, of the other. Brooding about those differences and what they suggest about film storytelling.

Later. Both movies had the same director, Robert Harmon. Very different kinds of stories, which is part of it. Brooding about magic v. ordinary. The magical film much more moody, visual, quiet, reflective. Brahms soundtrack (same composer, too). Fascinating difference. Magic v.ordinary. Going to watch best one again.
