being a teaching assistant for a film course on blockbusters, i have to review certain films. this week star wars which i never was into but since i found out it parallels the hidden fortress by kurosawa, i try telling people because that’s more interesting…and their eyes glaze over, so it goes. watching today i realize there is one detail i truly enjoy and it’s musical. darth’s loud difficult breathing. i love the sound and the confusion of what exactly does it mean. like glenn gould sitting below the piano or erroll garner above it on a phone book.
