Joey Contreras: "Crazy In Love" (Beyoncé). Nothing makes me want to let loose, be free and strut it out more than "Crazy In Love" by the Queen Bey herself. I am being loud and proud whenever this song comes on and not apologizing for it. The original is flawless, of course, but this live performance is a must watch.
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.
