I’d gladly see it TWICE
I just watched the new film “Once”. I recommend it highly to anyone who likes a) music, b) non-traditional romance movies and c) music. It is a film about friendship and love interwined so intimately with songwriting that the music becomes the third partner in the relationship. The two leads were stunningly understated in their perfect chemistry, and I simply couldn’t believe that songs written for a movie these days could actually be SO DANG WONDERFUL. Sure, you may not click with the style (I did), but you just have to admire the respect these guys paid to the audience in gifting us with original songs that stand alone as just really good indie-rock songs. And the story was good, too. Speaking of which, I promise the next post will be about how far I’ve come with my OWN story. I just had to share a great film.
