“… but it was the saxophone soloing that challenged credulity, it’s length and perhaps its unwillingness to tell a traditional story… If there’s one thing the facile critic needs to do his job, it is some verbal personality from the bandstand, some words to transcribe into the review – anything to make a thoroughly musical endeavor more literary or conversational. Coltrane would not provide it.”

Last Night

n

Over the past few weeks I have been thinking about this movie “Last Night” I saw many years ago – and I hope to see soon again. The movie begins at 18:00 and there are 6 hours left until the end of the world. Everyone in the movie seems to know and accept this and the world has changed accordingly. There is nothing sci-fi about the movie – it is all people facing their last 6 hours of existence. Within these settings the stories of numerous characters cross paths. The final scene of this movie has never left me. By the time I reached this scene I seemed to have adjusted to the film’s altered reality. So instead of it being crazy and bizarre it is now touching, sensitive and sensible. Wow! I couldn’t find a formal trailer – but I did find this bit.
