Do you people understand what a magnificent singer/songwriter this woman is?
Most music pales beneath the emotional intensity of her melodies/lyrics/voice.
The lyrics in particular are poetry at its most divine.
Rant, rant, rant.
Go listen to some Aimee Mann, and while you're at it watch Magnolia, which is an amazing example of a film adaptation of songs - the songs of Aimee Mann. Just in case any of you screenwriting students were sceptical when this possibility was raised in last week's discussion of adaptation.
Can anyone think of any other movies adapted from songs/music?
Pink Floyd's The Wall
Hurricane (I think this is based on a book, actually - Carter's personal account? Anyone? Anyone?)
