Jessica Redish: "Where You Are" from Kiss of the Spider Woman. The way the song moves from scene to song to dance thrills me every time I hear it. I love how it emerges so beautifully and organically from the story and how surprising and infectious the rhythms are. It always makes me want to dance. I love how the song speaks of how art can inspire our imaginations and transport us, no matter where we are.
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.
