Mercy Mercy Me

Just finished watching Standing in the Shadows of Motown, about the Funk Brothers, the musicians of Motown. A nice parallel to Only the Strong Survive, which I saw in April last year. I feel it's so sad that the Funk Brothers never really got the acclaim they deserved... man, if I could say I played on any one of those great great Motown hits - What's Going On?, What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted? etc. etc. etc. - let alone a thousand of them, I'd be a happy man.

Anyway, the Singapore Film Festival is back! Somehow the lineup seems to have fewer movies that I really want to see - Capturing the Friedmans, The Barbarian Invasions, Osama, and The Fog of War are the big-name ones, and scheduling difficulties kind of makes it hard to catch most of them. Sigh.
