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...
And the closing...
Not a perfect movie by any means, but still....wow. 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.
