damn, i can’t wait for the scene when the cute widdle cub trips out… Cinefamily is presenting The Bear August 30th with hometown post-protopunk heroes No Age playing a live score they’ve written specifically for the film. there are two shows at 8pm and 10.30pm, but you should probably buy tickets in advance anyway. heck, go twice! this night has fantastic written all over it, and it’s a three-thumbs-up recommendation from j. satan. (catch No Age doing their normal thang at the FYF Fest, too, on September 5th.)
The Bear
(w/ live score by No Age)
from the Cinefamily site: L.A.-based, world-renowned experimental noise pop duo No Age will appear live at the Cinefamily to perform their brand-new score for Jean-Jacques Annaud’s majestic 1988 film The Bear, a near-wordless cinematic expedition deep into the savagery and tenderness of the animal kingdom. Told from the titular species’ point of view, The Bear chronicles the journey of an orphan bear cub and a lone adult bear banding together to avoid two human hunters. Along the way, director Annaud has great fun with the storytelling possibilities from a non-human perspective, including dream sequences and an unforgettable psychdelic mushroom bear trip! With nearly no (human) dialogue, the film easily lends itself to live scoring, and No Age drummer Dean Spunt and guitarist Randy Randall have crafted a shimmering 90-minute set of sonic blasts and delicate textures that perfectly complement the peculiar, touching and altogether unique experience that is The Bear.
