Here it is, one of the greatest moments in television history. I’ve since realized that Dr. Black is the remarkable Bill Nighy, who I know best from Pirates of the Caribbean, embarrassingly enough. The writing credit belongs to Richard Curtis of Blackadder, Mr. Bean, Notting Hill, and Love Actually fame.

There’s so many different ways to interpret Nighy’s speech, but what truly resonated with me was the implied challenge; for any artist listening to dare to achieve what Van Gough did, to seek the beauty in the terrible. Which reminds me that I have to sit down and do a serious review of A Single Man.
