“Anyone who has been lucky enough to hear Mr. Krasinski in performance knows his skill at presenting the essence and power of a film.”
“It was remarkable and seamless, and yes—no modern action movie could outdo it.
In fact, I’ll go so far as to say it was live theater…It was as if Krasinski became one with the elements”
“During the applause and encores, you gestured to the hall’s organ – I’m sure it was, in turn, bowing to you in appreciation for having being played so dexterously”
