Yesterday, I saw The Savages starring Laura Linney and PS Hoffman. It was very good. And it, like several other very good, recently-released movies, features a Kinks song. To SWR loyalists, I must admit that The Darjeeling Limited has grown on me considerably since I first gave it a lukewarm reception here. In penance, I have attached “Strangers,” which has become a favorite of mine since I saw the film.
It seems that filmmakers are looking for genius melodies without resorting to the Beatles, which would be very easy and not too original. In these instances, there is a huge reserve of Kinks’ tunes that is begging for mass revival among Americans.
