“I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood-movie extoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids—and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me. Like the bodiless heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though I have been surrounded by mirrors of hard, distorting glass. When they approach me they see only my surroundings, themselves, or figments of their imagination—indeed, everything and anything except me.” - Ralph Ellison Last night, Saturday, 19th October at 10pm ET/PT, Starz Network aired the US premier of BBC produced drama 'Dancing On The Edge' starring leading man of the hour Chiwetel Ejiofor. Cunning timing on the part of the network; capitalizing wisely off the weekend US box office frenzy expected to crown Ejiofor's latest cinematic venture, the much anticipated (& tirelessly debated, if you've been paying any attention to the S&A boards this past year) '12 Years A Slave.' But, a cautionary word to the excited. 'Dancing On The Edge' may well leave you teetering on an edge - the edge of reason.
