Don't walk away

This morning it's quiet, except for the rain, heavy at times. It's the kind of day that puts you in a mood - not necessarily a bad one, just a deep pensiveness.

I'd like to put on "Atmosphere" by Joy Division as the soundtrack. So I will.

This was filmed in 1988, eight years after frontman Ian Curtis committed suicide. The director, Anton Corbijn, is scheduled to direct a feature film about Curtis. If it's anything like this video, it's going to be tremendous. So many of the shots in here - one jawa running to catch up to the other two, the band reflected in the puddle, the long final shot - evoke far more than they have any right to.

It's so nice to see genuine art every now and again.
