Awesome thrift store find of 1994 recordings by Tucker Martine of Moroccan Gnawa musicians.

Les Amants Réguliers (Regular Lovers)
Philippe Garrel, 2005, 178 min., 35mm

“This tender portrait of late-1960s French youth stars Louis Garrel as François, a 20-year-old Parisian struggling through the fires of revolutionary promise and its smoldering remains. Written and directed by his father, the celebrated auteur Philippe Garrel, the film begins with a handful of gangling young men sharing a pipe filled with hashish and talking of poetry. It is early 1968 in Paris, moments before the revolution or, rather, moments before that nearly forgotten flashpoint when cities across the world lighted up with radical promise and burning cars” – Manohla Dargis, NY TIMES
