Vid rec: Merry Go Round (BSG, Lee Adama)

[profile] m_a_r_i_k_s has posted her Vidukon premiere, Merry Go Round--for those of you who didn't attend, you can now see this extraordinary piece.

It's a vid that is deeply personal to me as a viewer, and one I recommend without hesitation for anyone interested in Lee. I will probably write at length about it at some stage, as it's a vid which I am still in the process of discovering myself. I was lucky to have the first viewing of it in private with [profile] m_a_r_i_k_s and [profile] brokenmnemonic, a second viewing during the premieres show, and now endless rewatching in the intimacy of my own home... this last feels very appropriate because it is a vid about a character's inner world, and specifically the inner world of an emotionally withdrawn character, one whom many people misread or fail to connect with. It's a vid to take one's time and patience with, if you have an open heart. I don't think I can put into words how privileged I feel that [profile] m_a_r_i_k_s shared it with us--it would take a vid to convey that. Maybe. :)

Perhaps the most extraordinary thing about this piece is how full of love and beauty it is despite the violence and pain, directly or indirect, in it. It's what makes me cry and marvel and feel underneath a deep happiness.
