Before Moulin Rouge....

I'll admit I got nothing this interesting thoughts worth brilliant or even not so brilliant bits of wisdom at the top of the brain --- no posts leaping to mind at all.

It just is what it is. And the depressing industry news hitting us from all sides isn't helping either.

So instead I'm taking a moment to marvel at the genius that was Coppola...and trying to even grasp making The Godfather, The Conversation, The Godfather Part II, Apocalypse Now, and One From The Heart in a nine year span during the mid/late '70's.

Waits + Gayle + Coppola. It was such a visual and musical feast, yet so overlooked and underrated...

The opening:

And the closing...

Not a perfect movie by any means, but And it's melancholy mood accurately reflects the prevailing winds round here these days.

For those feeling a little blue, or the pinch of a battered economy, or especially those in our business getting laid off of late...I'm sorry.

That one's from the heart.

Nice post.

I hadn't even heard of "One from the Heart," now I want to run out and see it.

Nice Tom/Crystal opening song. Two unique voices together.
