Wise Up

Wise Up – Aimee MannMagnolia 

I saw this floating around the internet right now, as I did some evening browsing thru my blog subscriptions. And for some reason, I had the urge to re-share this video on my blog. 

Magnolia” is not my favorite P.T. Anderson film, “There Will Be Blood” claimed that spot a year and a half ago, but this scene will always hold a special place in my heart. There is something to be said about the fact that he created a sing-a-long and montage that did not come across as cheesy. Quite the contrary, it feels potent and meaningful … it makes sadness extremely beautiful.

I remember feeling like I had grown up  or matured a little bit when watching the scene for the first time. I was probably 18 years old, and had plenty of growing up to do, but at least I finally saw that sadness and isolation could look and sound so grand.
