Stylized acting and direction is to realistic acting and direction as poetry is to prose.
It is the province of poetry to be more realistic and present than the artificial narratives of an outer discourse, and not afraid of the truthful difficulty of the average human life.

Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance.
I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.
