The Man Who Wasn't There

Visuals from the movie The Man Who Wasn't There by those good Minnesota boys, Joel and Ethan Coen.  It's interesting, the Coens, Sen. Al Franken and NY Times writer Thomas Friedman all grew up three or four blocks from each other. Music is by Jimmy Dale Gilmore who's from Lubbock,Texas. I don't know who he grew up with. Well, I guess that isn't so, he grew up with Butch Hancock and Joe Ely. Sorry, kind of rambling off a tangent there. Some time ago I posted Jimmy Dale singing Mack the Knife from the French movie Un Prophete. That's pretty good too if you appreciate his eerie hyper-nasal voice. Which I do.

the Coen Bros. are probably my favorite movie producers/directors, I read Friedman and agree with much of what he proposes, and consider my political alignment fairly close to Franken...great neighborhood!
