#108: Badlands

December 1, 2009

As winter descends, let’s not hibernate.  Let’s remember why we are built the way we are, and go places.

Or, make really, really good use of our Netflix accounts.  (Yeah, I’m awful.  And a sucker for a night in bed with Terry Malick.  Remember this?  Still waiting on this one.)

Badlands, 1973 by Terrence Malick.   Starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek.

The story of Kit and Holly is based on the killing spree of murderer Charles Raymond Starkweather who nicked 11 people in the late 1950’s while on a road trip with his little girlfriend Caril.  Obviously makins’ for a most endearing love story.

Kit in his Levi’s 507xx denim jacket (get yours here), white tee shirt, and barely pictured Levi’s 501s.  Not pictured: bad ass cowboy boots.

Holly makes being a murder accessory look innocent and sweet as pie.

(perfectly featuring ISV favorites Mickey and Sylvia on the soundtrack)

Love, mmmhm,  love is strange.

    Whatever happened to Sissy Spacek? She was great in Carrie and then dropped off the face of the earth. Such a natural beauty. Great site.
