So many magic moments

In light of Lou Reed’s passing and in honour of his magic, here is one of the most memorable uses of a song in a film scene, ever. The way that Patricia Arquette’s fake hair bounces, and flicks, from her face. The way her eyes stare. The way she makes you feel close even though we’re on the other side of the screen, and wants to invite us into the car with her, even though we’d be killed for it. Of course, it’s all about David Lynch doing over the top. Everyone in the film scene knows it. But that can’t keep us away.
