Randy Blair: "Dog Days Are Over" (Florence + The Machine). Aww, I've been there. If you're looking to shake off those post-break up emo feels with a private, semi-nude session of jumping up and down on the bed, I recommend the hipstery healing powers of Florence and the Machine's "Dog Days Are Over." I can guarantee you'll feel mighty, in control and slightly Wiccan. Don't let anyone see you do this though, unless your roommate is Tilda Swinton.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
