Make sure you reach 1:18.
Moonrise Kingdom is pretty good and so is Françoise Hardy. The film’s also brilliant for reminding you that your life is awful, now that you’re a grown up.
Need to watch this film. And yes that’s the official soundtrack.
Want a holiday.
I Feel Love was not Donna Summer’s best song.
Although it’s pretty obvious to me now that she’s singing about a relationship in this tune, my childhood brain was completely taken in by lyrics about parks melting, chinese checkers, and green icing. It was like listening to some sort of weird story tape but soundtracked by a wailing depressed woman mixed with funk and bongo drums. I literally thought it was about a woman having a mental breakdown over a cake. It made total sense to me at the time. Beyonce could only dream of pulling off these lyrics.
RIP The Queen of Disco.
P.S http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/9281616/Disco-is-a-feeling-not-a-formula.html - “Donna Summer also had a long and distinguished career and left an arsenal of blinding records that would be the envy of most pop stars, although as people like Elton John have pointed out since her death, she was never invited to the top table of Rock and Roll’s Hall of Fame.”
If you liked Drive, you should probably watch this.
Screen shot of the degree film. Wah.
I’ve applied for an internship at Film4. I’m relying on my obsession with films like this to get me the job. Crossing everything.
