Not since Buffy the Musical, have I seen an edgy and hip musical. Across the Universe has the added advantage of being poignant without being sappy and having a killer soundtrack. Thanks to my friend Jason for playing the music in his car, prompting me to ask, "What's this?" And more recently to the British stationery shop owner who had it playing in the store on the day that rain forced me to visit. I might have forgotten to put it in the Netflix queue if not for him.
Yeah, the universe conspired to help me see this flick, and it was a job well done. What music or movie have you loved lately?
