Quotes

Nothing: Realizing how small and insignificant you are / cannot be compensated by the size of your car / a big tab at the bar / a sexy avatar / a smashed guitar / or one last cigar.

Stunning work of art
13 June 2019 | by ajmurmannSee all my reviews

This is easily my favorite movie that I've watched so far this year. I'm not much one for poetry, but the writing of the narration in this movie was beautiful, amusing and profound. The cinematography was not only very well done, but more beautifully combined with the great narration by Iggy Pop and the wonderful musical score into a masterful piece of art.

Halfway through I knew I wanted to watch this again. I'd also love to read the narration on its own.
