serotta2 wrote: Beautiful scene from Ghostworld”. Wonderfully directed by Terry Zwigoff. Wonderfully acted by by Thora Birch. Enid (Thora Birch) puts on a old blues record she bought from Seymour. The song is “Devil Got My Woman” by Skip James (1931). The music is powerful, raw, and very very real.
The gates of hell have opened in Taiwan, as worshippers and revellers mark the beginning of the annual “Ghost Festival”.

Screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin is standing in the back of the Lunt-Fontanne Theater just off Broadway watching his latest baby, “Ghost: The Musical,” unfold. Rubin won an Academy Award for his screenplay about, well, a ghost. He never imagined it as a musical. Yet here it is. Already a smash hit in London (tickets have just gone on sale through 2013), and productions are now in the works in the Netherlands and Melbourne. And, of course, in New York, where it opens April 23. Rubin spoke with The Arty Semite about how Hamlet’s father inspired him, how the ghost of a deceased meditating instructor got him his first job, and why he probably won’t write another film.
No one took Baby out of the corner like Patrick Swayze. A generation of Jewish girls thanks you, and misses you.
