If you live in Los Angeles, enjoy watching old Louis Malle's movies, and love to hear one of the most beautiful Miles Davis' works, don't miss the screening of Elevator to the Gallows (Ascenseur pour l'échafaud) at the Lammle theater in Santa Monica boulvard. It's about two blocks west of 405.
Maybe I shouldn't be so confident in suggesting a movie I have seen years ago. Maybe seeing it again would be very different from seeing it years ago, the same way watching Wings of Desire was different. But I want to try it anyway. Even if I don't enjoy it this time, watching it tells me something about myself and shows me how my taste in music and movies is changed.
Hear a sample piece of Miles Davis' improvisation on the movie here.
