For some odd reason, over the last two weeks, I have watched The Green Mile three times with family and friends.
That may seem extreme, but the movie is an easy sell.
I have read Stephen King and most of us have seen many of his movies, most of which I thought to be best rated for late night drive-in showings. The Green Mile raised King to a new level in the film world.
The Green Mile displays all the aspects of man and living, mostly, the understanding and compassionate side of a bunch of guys who must deal with the death sentences of others and eventually carrying out the execution of those which they have become so familiar.
Michael Clarke Duncan, who left us in 2012.
The level of screenwriting, set production, acting and the story line take this movie to a level rarely reached today.
If you don't tingle or find yourself crying at some point in this movie, you are numb, or perhaps, dead.

No, I'm joking, but I wish I would have met Michael before he passed. What a smile - such a pleasant guy.
Let us never forget those jewels who bring us enjoyment and richness, in the slightest sense.
