I’m eschewing the list format and opting for something a bit more conversational.
But when all is said and done, there’s a sweet sense of vindication throughout the movie.
A microcosm of The Cure’s entire career, highlighting nearly every rise and fall, every stylistic direction, every bold experiment, and every failure the band has ever had.
I was excited to watch Whisper of the Heart, but I found it far more rewarding and relevant than I thought possible.
A lyrical film about death, nostalgia, and the importance of honoring the wishes of those whose years are near their end.
I was shocked by the film’s premise, violence, and implications. Most shocking of all, I found myself deeply moved by the characters and their tragic situation.
It’s this dichotomy between the worldliness and the spirituality in their songs that makes Lift To Experience’s music so interesting to me.
