“On a spaceship somewhere sailing across an empty sea”

The Kinks – “This Time Tomorrow” from Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One (1970)This song was used to great affect in Wes Anderson’s latest, The Darjeeling Limited. I can’t really recommend the movie but this Kinks album is terrific.

  1. hmm, you didn’t like it? I love all of his movies. I guess I don’t really care about the plot or ‘character development’ as much as others. I mean, I’m no film expert, but every time I watch one of his movies I never want them to end. Seeing the Lola vs. Powerman songs put to these images gave me serious chills.

    Darjeeling Limited certainly had its structural problems, but I thought it was emotionally affecting, especially in its use of silence. Or, rather, scenes w/o much talking.

    It had its moments, for sure.

    Not to turn this into a film blog, but the Coens’ “No Country for Old Men” is absolutely terrific. See it today.

    I’m planning to, actually.
