Beats: An old movie with a great soundtrack

A movie that I will watch over and over again is Stealing Beauty with Liv Tyler.  The movie takes place in Italy.  The soundtrack is amazing:  Portishead, Mazzy Star, Liz Phair, Cocteau Twins, Hooverphonics, Hole.  It’s sweet and innocent with the pressure at 19 to lose innocence.  There is so much about the movie I love.  I can play it muted and the scenery is so pretty that it needs no sound, but also you can play it without seeing it and the music and dialogue is so strong you need visuals.

And I leave you with this poem she writes in the movie:

The dye is cast The dice are rolled I feel like shit you look like gold.
