Speaking of music, has anybody ever seen At Close Range ? I landed on it right at the beginning last night and, seeing young Sean Penn, decided to check it out. The opening sequence is just him driving his truck, but the accompanying score is "Live To Tell," the Madonna song, but minus the vocals. "Wow, that's weird, but oh yeah, they were married back then," I thought to myself. It was a cool movie with a great cast--Walken, Mary Stuart-Masterson, Crispin Glover, Chris Penn. But the entire score was all variations on "Live To Tell." Pretty weird, but hey, I think it's a cool song so I was OK with it. Turns out it was originally composed by her producer to be a film score before Madonna hired him, which is why it's much more dramatic-sounding than her usual stuff.
Another weird thing is that in the very first scene, Penn pulls his truck into a small town-square location that's centered around a large square monument with a statue on it. I was like "Oh, it's just like Marietta, GA or Franklin, TN." When I was looking at the IMDB page for Madonna info, I scrolled past the location listing: Franklin TN. That scene was shot about a block from the theatre I went to every week to see Rocky Horror as a teen. Small world, huh, @SpunkyTWS?
