Modern Love

25 Jul

Ross and I had a moment to talk together last night without a five year old loudly interrupting. It was past my bedtime, but it felt so good to be talking to him without children running about or needing anything, so I stayed up. He was looking at some random link about David Bowie’s art collection. He wasn’t too impressed, and mentioned something about a bunch of “modern” stuff. I then made the necessary joke asking “anything titled, ‘Modern Love?'” and he sort of laughed and said “No”. Next thing I know, he’s pulling up this old clip:

 

Does it remind you of this?

Is this “Frances Ha” montage a reference or a homage to Carax? A lazy attempt at a homage? A rip-off? Appropriation?

We discussed these things. I do love watching the “Mauvais Sang” montage a lot more than the short “Frances Ha” one. Denis Lavant is alluring and weird, and so wild. And he’s really doing all that running and cavorting; there’s only one cut in there. That’s about how deep my film analysis goes. Ross had more interesting thoughts on the matter.
