20 Feet From Stardom

Opening credits 20 Feet From Stardom Documentary 15

if you haven't seen the compelling documentary 20 feet from stardom yet, please do.

the film focuses on the music industry's unsung heroes -- the back up singers. these remarkable singers possess voices which drive some of the most iconic songs in history. the documentary gives credit where credit is due by putting these phenomenal artists front and center where they deserve to be.

in addition to the singers' remarkable vocals and stories, the film also exposes the complex and oftentime infuriating politics within the music industry, which keeps these artists on the sidelines despite their occasional desire to take center stage.

I'm totally gay for these cinematic buildings as seen through the eyes of barcelona-based illustrator and architect, federico babina.

i am also a fan these films -- with the exception of body double. i didn't see that one. but, if john lautner's chemosphere house is in it, i am totally streaming that flick.
