I stumbled across this new Woody Allen gem.
The new Deerhunter song 'Never Stops' is solid.
Who is Iris DeMent? I love her already. She's collaborated with Emmylou Harris, and she has an album called 'Infamous Angel.' You can't go wrong with a title like that.
The song 'Dead Letter & the Infinite Yes' by Wintersleep is shaping up to be a surprise favourite for me this year (though it came out last year). A surprise because I'm not such a fan of their other stuff. Not a fan at all.
Ahead this year: Sean Penn in a Van Sant film, Alexandra Maria Lara in Spike Lee's WWII epic (good lord she's amazing -that's her above), Rian Johnson's new film, Kiarostami's film with Juliette Binoche, new Sam Mendes and David Fincher, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman in a Charlie Kaufman picture. And of course, Sean Penn and Brad Pitt in the new Terrence Malick film Tree of Life.
