I’ve been lucky to catch a few good movies lately including (500) Days of Summer with these talented actors. A dance sequence set to Hall & Oates “You Make Me Dreams Come True” (and somehow including Han Solo) is one of the most joyous expressions of young love I’ve seen in a while. (Not on youtube yet. Go to a theater for once. Come on. Support the cinema.) I’m a sucker for a dance or musical number in a non-musical film. Why not? Here’s a couple more examples from an indie fave, Hal Hartley.
A few other movies (with no dance sequences) that I highly recommend this summer are Funny People and District 9.
