Stubborn to great art? Lacking of propper words I can only comment it with (genius like) music crap. :tongue:

Even though I'm not personally into either funk or drumming, I really like this drumming workshop by Yogi Horton, on the evolution of drumming w.r.t. blues, Motown, funk, disco etc.

Some people experience musical frissons and some don't. Couldn't find the most recent article I read on the subject, but it's supposed to be caused by a greater connectivity in the brains of some people between the emotional and musical processing centers. Some of us quite literally "feel" the music.

http://www.slate.com/articles/health_an ... ional.html
Have you ever been listening to a great piece of music and felt a chill run up your spine? Or goosebumps tickle your arms and shoulders?

The experience is called frisson (pronounced free-sawn), a French term meaning “aesthetic chills,” and it feels like waves of pleasure running all over your skin. Some researchers have even dubbed it a “skin orgasm.”

Listening to emotionally moving music is the most common trigger of frisson, but some feel it while looking at beautiful artwork, watching a particularly moving scene in a movie, or having physical contact with another person. Studies have shown that roughly two-thirds of the population feels frisson, and frisson-loving Reddit users have even created a subreddit to share their favorite frisson-causing media.

The Cell (2000) directed by Tarsem Singh.

A psychologist delves into the mind of a comatose serial killer in order to find the location of his last victim whilst she's still alive, starring Jennifer Lopez, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Vince Vaughn.

I first came across Singh's visually stunning The Fall (2006) via Roger Ebert's review and was very impressed some years back, and so recently pleasantly stumbled upon Singh's directorial debut on Amazon.

An all-around cruder film than the later The Fall, (and does not adhere to the latter's zero-CGI policy), however the visual flair with regards to costume (designs by Eiko Ishioka), cinematography etc. is certainly there, albeit fewer and further between, but for a directorial debut outing, the film is very laudable.

Ms. Lopez showed she was a real actress in that movie IMHO. Serious. It was moving, at the end. The ridiculous premise worked bc she was convincing.
