    I’ll never get tired of rewatching this. If you can look beyond Bowie as a literal bodhisattva Medicine King sent to heal a lonely and barren world (which he obviously was and continues to be), this has got to be the greatest cinematic depiction of what music feels like and what music means. A perfect film.

    If you don’t take this film on its own terms as a full and perfect expression of the irrepressible creativity inherent in human desire, you are an ignorant bonehead. 

    Also, I am stoned.

    The Rise of “Oh Dear”-ism

    ★★★★

    Because the news had given up reporting them as political struggles, it meant there was now no way to understand why these terrible events were happening.

    And instead, political conflicts around the world — from Darfur to Gaza — are now portrayed to us as simple illustrations of the mindless cruelty of the human race, about which nothing can be done… and to which the only response is ‘Oh Dear’.

    It’s like living in the mind of a depressed hippie.
