One of my favorite shorts from Samuel Beckett. Two old blokes after the apocalypse still can’t get it together.

Jazz (2001, Ken Burns) Ep. 6 The Velosity of Swing

Psy-Fi’s Benny Goodman post made me want to revisit this episode of the Burns series.

I think that's on my Beckett on Film collection that I need to revisit, is that where you're watching these?

Yep. Just ordered a used copy of the set (new ones long out of print). A mixed bag (imo), actually, but no one's ever attempted to put his best known plays on film so it's a keeper.

Hardcore (1979, Paul Schrader)

Watching a streamer. Gerorge C. Scott is great as an American Mid-Western Calvinist who has to confront aspects of himself in the form of a missing daughter caught in the world of porn. Good Schrader script (save a dumb Hollywood-style ending).
Not a bad soundtrack, either (Jack Nitzsche), even though it was Arvo Pärt's Miserere that put me in the mind of the movie.
