I always watch the Oscars, but with a dash of spite because I don’t think the process necessarily represents how films should get recognized, but we won’t go into that. Tonight, what pleasure it was to see Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard, with the same ratty guitar that we saw him perform with feet away at Sundance last year, sing”Falling Slowly” from Once…
…and then take the win! After getting cut off early, Marketa gives a touching speech.
And to top it all off, howabout news that The Swell Season–Glen & Marketa–are touring and coming to the Depot in Salt Lake on May 2. I just hope it’s early enough that I can get myself over to the Urban Lounge in time to see Cut Copy.
Once is a beautiful film that I would recommend for EVERYONE, whether you’re a music and film freak or not.
