Here is the soundtrack for a new film made by Azazel Jacobs with the cooperation of his father and mother, and their shape-shifting loft in the Lower East Side. Here’s a movie that’s tender, but unsentimental, a movie that depends – not on dialogue – but mostly on facial expressions and atmosphere. The score is very subtle, and will pass you right on by if you’re not paying attention. A favorite scene of mine involves an antique wedding dress transformed into a lamp-shade and a light dimmer. It’s accompanied by the first song above, a blues-tinted waltz. The composer, Mandy Hoffman laments the degree of musicianship in the song, and – while it may be a little unsteady – I think that only adds to the sweetness, and vulnerability of the scene. The movie is about a full grown man who wants to live like a child in the security of his parents home once again, but is unwilling to admit this desire to anyone. It’s a feeling I think we can all sympathize with…even if we never admit it.
