One Night in Memphis
(i will be real with you, i think jim jarmusch is my favorite director)
i don’t like sports, but i also don’t like people who are too vocal about not liking sports. like the kinds of people who post the same “hope they score a goal” joke on superbowl night every single year. i’m forsure guilty of this. don’t get me wrong, i also think sports culture is obnoxious and easy to make fun of, but it feels like the same jab every time.
i say all of this to make it clear that fran lebowitz is the only person i know of who can talk about not liking sports and make it a point worth listening to.
wish i liked this more but i still liked it! jane fonda, what needs to be said? and that score is beautifully haunting. i can’t say it loses steam in the second half but it definitely doesn’t embrace what the first half had going for it. i think one of my biggest take aways is that adam driver is the sequel to donald sutherland.
