He allows us, the viewers, to complete the sentence, to provide the denouement, to finish the dream. Reid is a subtle colorist who manages to be bold. He is a formalist who avoids the formulaic. His strength is in his ability to wring every possibility out of the parameters of size and materials that he has placed on himself.
