Doughnut and I went to see the filmed documentary of the
Buena Vista Social Club. Amazing film, full of images and sounds that
combined seems to have gotten to me in ways i didnt think possible.

The musicians are all older Cuban giants who were mostly all slumbering in
retirement or obscurity. Ry Coder acted as a quiet catalyst to gather up a
band of the greats for one last stand of the old sounds Cuban Style.

There is a scene where one of the singers walks around NYCity with this
look of wonder in his eyes, down streets I know better than most people
and have not been on in more than 2 years.

The images of Cuba are dirgelike but still spark with a kind of hope for
beauty beyond all hope. To live in the shrouds of hope with music as the
one thing that sprouts beeauty into your life.....

A must see flick.
