CQ (Original Movie Soundtrack)
By Mellow / Directed by Roman Coppola
It turned out to be some kind of premiere I guess. We bought tickets to see this movie that
looked pretty cool by a Coppola. It was The San Francisco International Film Festival after all,
and we wanted to take part. We did. A few days before we saw Superchunk play a live score for
this amazing silent twenties Japanese flick at The Castro. Whew. Cool as it sounds it was it was.
So, we go to the Kabuki Theater for the Coppola kid's thing. Well, they've got the three best
rows in the room roped off for what turns out to be The Coppola Clan. Soon they're sitting behind
us...Francis...Eleanor...where's Sophia? At one point, Roman is up front answering questions,
talking about his "Valentine to 60's Cinema" when his father starts heckling him. Suddenly we're
surrounded by Feuding Coppolas. It was nearly as fun as his movie.
I really liked it. And like Sophia's, it was really musical. I don't just mean it had a great
soundtrack (they do), I mean, like, they're musical. You know? Mellow. Air. C'mon....
I don't own a lot soundtracks. But I've got these.
