Is another exciting experiment from director Richard Linklater, following Waking Life. Shot on high-definition video, this riveting, caustically funny film version of Stephen Belber's play stays confined to one dingy Michigan motel room where three characters, played by Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman and Robert Sean Leonard — all at the top of their game — open old wounds about a date rape. The wrenching result is impossible to shake.

    “Stillness Is the Move”

    Dirty Projectors | 2009

    A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
