Of all the Cameron Crowe movies, Elizabethtown had remained the movie I always said I would get around to watching…
It was cloudy out this afternoon so I figured why not today?
I wouldn’t rank Elizabeth town atop my favorite Crowe movies (Almost Famous, Singles, Say Anything) but I enjoyed it lot more than I thought I would.
My favorite part of the movie was the Drive back home where Orlando’s character realizes he should have done that trip with his dad years ago.
I had a similar trip like that with my father in 1998 and it remains to this day the most important chapter of our Father/Son relationship.
The funeral wake, specifically the part where Susan Sarandon does her tap dance farewell - nearly made me cry.
The FREEBIRD cover was pretty cheesy but I got mad props for the band playing thru the Sprinkler system going off.
Kinda fitting I think… if you’re going to start playing Freebird - you should fucking finish it.
