I’d like to recommend the movie Be Here To Love Me (2005), a documentary about the late great Townes Van Zandt by director Margareth Brown. If you’re into Van Zandts music, this film is a must-see. Van Zandt was one of the most gifted new songwriters that grew up in the 60’s and he has left a mark on some of todays most influential artist of the country and americana genres.

Here is Nancy Griffith doing a great tribute to Townes playing one of my favourite songs, Tecumseh Valley:

Now is your chance to see a great documentary about Joy Division free on Pitchfork.tv I think the movie is available by online streaming for a short time only, so be quick. It’s the best music documentary I’ve seen.

The movie is made by Grant Gee who also made the Radiohead film Meeting People Is Easy. People interviewed includes Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Peter Hook, Pete Shelly, Peter Saville, Tony Wilson, Annik Honoré, Richard H. Kirk, Genesis P. Orrige, Anton Corbijn and Paul Morley.

Gaudis La Sagrada Família (fra flickr.com)

På nettsidene til UBUWEB fant jeg en fin film om den katalonske arkitekten Antoní Gaudi (1852-1926) lagd av den japanske regissøren Hiroshi Teshigahara. Teshigahara er sikkert ikke kjent for så mange, men hans film “Kvinnen i sanden” (Woman in the Dunes, 1964) kan anbefales, ikke minst på grunn av musikken komponert av Tôru Takemitsu som også har komponert musikken her.
