First song from the film. I keep getting it in my head over the past few days.

that's Russell at the beginning of course. Adam enters at 1:06

Wright's doc covers all sorts of songs and, you know, if they're doing their thing lots of people should have lots of different favorite songs, but this is both one of their most well-known songs and a particular favorite of mine, for those new to Sparks

Advertisements for the doc have started to appear so theyíre further on my mind these days. Here is information Iíve previously mentioned

The Sparks song in Holy Motors



The Sparks song with the voice of Carax



The Sparks song with a director who Iíll let you guess

it evokes feelings closest to Pola X among other Carax movies, in other words it's dark. and Sparks didn't write a dark musical, this is what Carax made it. which Carax meta references. it's a movie about a downward spiral and I felt myself going down with it, sometimes in an impressive way, in other words grand cinematic statements, along with bits of humor here and there

it's the kind of movie watching experience in which because I didn't quite anticipate how the movie would feel I do want to see the movie again

Carax in person is a pretty big deal

You should watch Lovers on the bridge! https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101318/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

One of my all time favorites.

I just watched the THE SPARKS BROTHERS a week or so ago, so claims of unhipness can no longer be levied against me.

I don't think you'll like Annette, other Carax movies, or any Sparks music, but it's a big deal event and you can like those. other notable people will also be present as guests, is my guess

that movie you were once able to find for me, thanks again, Ticket of No Return, is going to be on the criterion channel next month, via, yes, Linklater. also To the Ends of the Earth will be, and I remember you, somewhat hilariously, said "life just feels too short these days" about finishing that movie
