Ain't Them Bodies Saints

All art aspires to the condition of music, said the 19th century English essayist Walter Pater. Though there's truth in this famous statement, some works of art strive to be like music much more than others. For example, the music is very low in the films of British socialists like Mike Leigh and Ken Loach. But it is certainly very high in American indie movies like Upstream Color and Ain't Them Bodies Saints (David Lowery edited the former and wrote and directed the latter). Saints has a story that could easily form the lyrics of a tune; it's a sad song, and a solid movie.
