At least we think this is a hotel bed, else Ms. Nadler maintains a beautifully manicured boudoir. The La Blogothèque crew wraps its sepia-toned lenses around goth-tinged chanteuse Marissa Nadler for three songs on this, the latest installment of their MTV-approved Take Away Shows series. Going in what we think is reverse chronological order (to fit the stark cinematography), here, after Marissa does some a cappella Leonard Cohen (“Suzanne”) while at a stop light, is Ballads Of Living And Dyings “Fifty Five Falls,” slowly unfolding under a long and steady zoom.
But first the action was in a moonlit Central Park.
And heere’s “Salutations In The Dark,” where we hear Marissa and Vincent Moon first mentioning the possibility of the Park closing…
It’s like Memento or something.
