    “Well, Adam, the Shipibo-Konibo only receive an icaros, or song, if the singer is ‘there’ on the same side as the spirit who created it. In this way the past and present converge. The flip sides of the same cosmic coin. That definition of fidelity makes sense to me. But Lenny believed in teshuva, the Talmudic power to reach back in

    "You who saw it all, or saw flashes and fragments, take from us this example, try and get yourselves together, clean up your act, find your community, pick up on some kind of redemption of your own consciousness, become more mindful of your own friends, your own work, your own proper meditation, your own proper art, your own beauty.

    More interested in character and world building than narrative formal structure, the first half is a bit of a “slow-burn,” but this pop-corn flick with a heart of gold leads to a totally kickass payoff. The cast is undeniably good top to bottom, but the one who makes the most of the “Tarantino Treatment,” is Pitt. His Cliff Booth is instantly iconic— a bold, beautiful, sun-soaked badass— and a role Pitt was born to deliver.

    Couldn’t shake the feeling this would make a great double feature with Inherent Vice.
