I'm of an age when if I started to do eulogies, I'd be doing nothing else

A Prairie Home Companion, My mini-review.

You don't even have to be a fan of the show, or even like it really to
enjoy this film. It's a send off that asks us to enjoy the time we've had
rather than celebrate or even promote any of the things that are to come.
This could of been a pair of hours where Garrison Keillor says "look what
I've achieved", but instead it's a really profound gesture; asking us to
enjoy our own legacies and to not lament when we come to realize there are
fewer days ahead than there are behind. The show is really part of the
setting and not even part of the premise, it's about a cast of characters
coming to understand mortality and impermanence. Even if you aren't a fan
of the show it's really quite good, it tooke me by surprise. I expected
something novel or warm in the way of grandparent's hug. Instead I left
feeling I'd gotten some of my grandparent's wisdom in the embrace.
