The first time I saw The Virgin Suicides once I owned the DVD, I watched the special features and saw the video for Air’s “Playground Love.” Searching for the song “Cherry Blossom Girl” I’ve discovered Air, which is a departure from what I usually listen to. My music taste is usually very organic, but so far I’m really digging it. The album art alone is so retro yet so hip at the same time. More proof that many good things, like Chanel and brie cheese, come from France.
And as far as the movie goes, see it if you haven’t. Sofia Coppola is amazing and Kirsten Dunst is one of my top 5 favorite actresses. Darkly haunting but with a whimsical undercurrent. Sublime!
