Both Unfortunately and I suppose appropriately(?) films like “Sleeping Beauty” are no longer getting the distribution they once had, due to the changing awareness of old social norms.

at a local college, there seems to be a trend to be much more careful with programming, as not to upset or offend too many folks. It’s kind of bumming me out.

Very effective Musics !
...I always blither about Soundtrack Musics having interesting & original palettes - but I do really like the way he's using elements here. It's identifiable as Genre Soundtrack maybe - but seems a creative approach - with not too dense instrumentation yet expressive... I suppose I love Gittars & things too...

Or more accurately; “Hang loose,” “Right on,” “Thank you,” “Things are great,” “Take it easy” – in Hawaii, the shaka sign expresses all those friendly messages and more.

...maybe saying it's 'vertical' is close to saying it's creating textures / atmospheres over 'tunes'...

Erik VT:

@ultraD: indeed! - when it finally got a broadcast on ABC(?) network - made sure to DVR it. (After hearing Shields fascinating fresh air w/Terry Gross interview). It was really quite fascinating to watch/hear her POV from hindsight. And yes that ending is quite resonant with so many right now! What I found so particularly perverse abt the docu … turns out the tv ads for the Calvin Klein jeans we ALL had access to where by Far the most exploitive to revisit of all the “provocative” materials.
(Pretty Baby 1978 film, is quite the experience to revisit now!)

Definitely have a listen to the latest “fresh air” interview with Molly Ringwald from 2/12/24(?). It’s right along the same parameters as the Brooke Shields vibes. They are both so informed and open minded about all the “complications”.

I haven’t rewatched Last Tango in Paris from start to finish in a long long while - yet did see the last half of it - last month. Yikes , it’s indeed tough sledding at this point. I had really forgotten how artsy and non-linear it plays. It’s way more a dysfunctional macho-fest than I recalled. Time really does evolve & change perspectives. We are a long way from the early 1970s !

Last Tango has the additional baggage of knowing Maria wasn't alerted to the butter scene coming...whatever one think of intimacy coaches, it makes those kind of stunts less likely
