I've had all these mixed feelings built up. There'll be more back and forth about the mass choreography of Zhang Yimou, but at first viewing it was pretty cool---and open in spirit. Seeing Jacques Rogge toward the end sorta put a damper on things, but I felt surprisingly affectionate toward Hu Jintao throughout. All in all, it just made me incredibly proud of China. Of all its been through and all it can be.
