River To River.
still from Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell
Last night on Sundance I caught Matt Wolf's amazing film about Arthur Russell, Wild Combination. Besides making me weep in an almost uncontrollable way (Ehh, what am I saying? It was pretty uncontrollable.), the film drew an unintentional line between Russell's music and Spencer Finch's The River That Flows Both Ways on The High Line. Mostly because of the math and the water, but there's also the slow unfolding that both carry no matter the light or speed that happens to be surrounding it.
