As part of its periodic “Best Picture from the Outside” series, the Film Experince crew publishes an extremely thorough, impressive side by side analysis of Casablanca and Unforgiven. I’m taken with the notion that Clint Eastwood is too besotted with the limitations of Classical Filmmaking and the good but explicit script to do anything but present William Munny unambiguously.
Since I don’t go to Animal Collective for clarity, let alone cohesion, my instant attraction to “What Would I Want Sky” from the Fall Be Kind EP didn’t surprise me (it narrowly missed my top twenty). The way one of their singers says “glasses clinkin’” makes up for the feeling with which he imbues the regrettable “I’m weighted by thinking.” Weighted by thinking is not the first thing that comes to mind when listening to Animal Collective.
