A seriously belated set of comments about "A Sense of Life":

Working with very little archive material, the filmmakers conveyed a
dynamic, intense, woman whose inner drive totally overwhelmed her
physical exterior and rendered her beautiful.

I could have done without the stereotyped commentary about her love
life. Obviously she and her husband had quietly conducted an open
relationship, in an era when one didn't speak of such things. To
characterize it as her husband 'not being enough' or Ayn 'being too
much for one man' simply insults the love that they shared and shows
a lack of understanding of the complexities of managing multiple
relationships. I look forward to the next movie maybe handling that
part of her life in more depth.
