Jeff Daniels, Melanie Griffith, some extras, and various Feelies (visible: Dave Weckerman, Stanley Demeski, the top of Bill Million's hair) in Something Wild, Jonathan Demme, 1986. As much as I loved the fact that the Feelies were in this film as "The Willies," the high-school reunion band, I didn't think their music was represented as "accurately" as it might have been, even though that IS them playing; as galvanic as the sight of Dave singing Bowie's "Fame" is, it's not really what the group's about. I had forgotten, though, something very clever that Demme does at this point in the scene, right before villain Ray Liotta turns up; the lights go down, and the band starts in on the very evocative intro to the song "Loveless Love," which begins on a note of tentative lyricism and then grows more tense and propulsive. The music, and the people, change the mood even as the shot itself stays the same; Daniels and Griffith kiss, it's a magical moment, but then the sinister Liotta enters, frame right, circles behind and sidles into Griffith, just as Bill and Glenn Mercer's guitars are meshing and strumming just a little tighter and a little denser. Very cool. Olivier Assayas uses the same song to similar effect in Carlos.
