The Bodyguard

We will always love her.

Before the horror of her slow descent into addiction, before the crushing reality of her premature death, Whitney Houston soared.

Remember being in the theater in ’92, when this film arrived.

Originally written for Diana Ross and Steve McQueen, then shelved, it is many things — a love story, a mystery, and a film which is, admittedly, not perfect.

And so what?

There are moments which endure, and one is when Whitney’s voice drops out for a beat, then her eyes open and, words erupting like fire, she declares her eternal love.

Right through the heart.
