Patti Smith Dream of Life

John here:

Saw this Patti Smith bio / tour / art film called Dream of Life. Very inspiring, watching a consummate performer surf this massive wave of electric sound - intoning an apocalyptic call-to-arms of personal expression and political action. Out of anyone else's mouth some of this shit would sound like a Fine Art freshman's manifesto, but she summons all the conviction of some oracle from the Trojan War, and gets right past your irony towers.

Even if you're not a Patti Smith fan, watch this movie - if only to watch a wise survivor channel untold voltages and fuck life like she's about to ship overseas.
