''Look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else” – Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.

I can't recommend highly enough the Alan Yentob A Charmed Life documentary on the great playwright Tom Stoppard broadcast recently. Among a cornucopia of delights surveying Stoppard's career is a vignette when Stoppard showing Yentob around his house unexpectedly puts on part 1 of The Köln Concert, the classic Keith Jarrett record from 1975 and the atmosphere of the film suddenly fizzes with mysticism, Stoppard looking lost in thought as he spins around from the CD player to look at the camera. The clip begins at the 08:55 mark.
