– “If loving you is a Crime” by Lee Moses

from the movie “A Teacher” (bad movie, 2/10)

Lee Moses (13 March 1941 – 1997) was an American R&B and soul singer and guitarist, whose recordings in the late 1960s, and his 1971 LP Time and Place, are highly regarded by fans of the deep soul genre. He had some intonations closed to Otis Redding’s voice added to a real funk rhythm and tremendous energy. This song deserved a better movie.

Another notable great song is “Bad Girl” used for the movie “BLOOD TIES” (2013), actually my favorite Lee Moses’ tittle:

Please also enjoy his amazing “Hey Joe” version:

That was one of the best soul voice ever in my opinion.

BEST SCENE EVER # 44

BARRY LYNDON directed by Stanley Kubrick

1_20101108_004707

Genre : Drama

Stanley Kubrick’s “Barry Lyndon,” received indifferently in 1975, has grown in stature in the years since and is now widely regarded as one of the master’s best. It is certainly in every frame a Kubrick film: technically awesome, emotionally distant, remorseless in its doubt of human goodness. Based on a novel published in 1844, it takes a form common in the 19th century novel, following the life of the hero from birth to death. The novel by Thackeray, called the first novel without a hero, observes a man without moral, character or judgment, unrepentant, unredeemed. Born in Ireland in modest circumstances, he rises through two armies and the British aristocracy with cold calculation.

Rating : 8.75/10

The soundtrack is amazing, even better than the movie itself :

– Memorable song : « Sarabande » by Haendel

“Waiting for the Miracle” by Leonard Cohen

– “Sweet Jane” by Cowboy Junkies

from NATURAL BORN KILLERS directed by Oliver Stone

215px-NBKillaz

Genre: Thriller- Crime- Drama

Oliver Stone’s “Natural Born Killers” might have played even more like a demented nightmare if it hadn’t been for the O.J. Simpson case. Maybe Stone meant his movie as a warning about where we were headed, but because of Simpson it plays as an indictment of the way we are now. We are becoming a society more interested in crime and scandal than in anything else – more than in politics and the arts, certainly, and maybe even more than sports, unless crime is our new national sport.

Genre : Drama

Trainspotting the 1996 Danny Boyle’s drama takes you in the life of those who have ventured into the darker corners of addiction know that one of its few consolations, once the fun has worn off, is the camaraderie with fellow practitioners. Substance abuse sets the user apart from the daily lives of ordinary people. No matter how well the addict may seem to be functioning, there is always the secret agenda, the knowledge that the drug of choice is more important than the mundane business at hand, such as friends, family, jobs, play and sex.

Terrifying !
