263. Live from Shiva's Dance Floor (2003)
Meet me at the corner of creation and destruction.
This is the only true "short" film on my 365 clocking in at only 21 minutes. I included it because it is absolutely awesome and it is directed by my favorite director, Richard Linklater (Dazed & Confused, Before Sunrise, etc.). Bohemian "tour guide" Speed Levitch shares his thoughts about New York City, September 11th, and the human condition in a whirlwind of ideas and ruminations. This is the most effective of the many twin tower "reflective" films that were made in the past decade because it does a great job of capturing the pain, hope, and interesting perspective shared by many native to America's largest city.
