There’s a kind of reverse trick in the previously mentioned Wire song in C’mon C’mon where the songs starts as full volume soundtrack when they’re outside and then it jumps to them in an apartment and it switches to background as it’s on the stereo. I liked it.
How does this one grab you? The guitar starting up and Martin Donovan getting out of his jeep, and screaming, "I can't stand the quiet!!"

The scene is more of a choreography piece:




This was a blind rental in a 5 title for 7eu in XtraVision Baggott St circa 2003. I was chuffed when I also had a chance to acquire the VHS years later.

This was my first experience of Hal Hartley. He's college buddies with Ira Kaplan of Yo La Tengo, so YLT will often feature diagetically with characters listening to them.

Band stuff can be handy shorthand for characterisation, I think?

Like they use Clash stuff in Brad Pitt's office in Moneyball, to show what a rebel against the system he is

Poor the Clash, they deserve better than being a second rate Bob Marley/Scarface poster

Anyway, heres Adam Ant in Blade Runner, not sure how one reads into that in regards worldbuilding

Gone through the last few months of my letterboxd and this cringeful scene of DeNiro singing along to the Stones in his zooped up landrover is all I could find. [Tony Scott's The Fan].




DeNiro. They didn't play much rock music in his household growing up. Then again his father was an abstract expressionist painter.


Recommend this film for the above carry-on, and DeNiro roaring "Bobbbaaay!" like a loon in the stands at the baseball game. That, ladies and gentlemen, is method acting.

Had totally forgotten about the existence of that film.
