Blogging Oscar, 10:48 pm

Sorry, but Michael Mann's montage of clips meant to represent how America is represented in the movies must rank among the most muddle-headed efforts of its kind in Oscar history. The customary "obituary reel" was, as usual, classy and respectful. (Good to see Philippe Noiret featured so prominently.) But where was James Brown, singer of "Living in America" (which figured in Mann's montage)?

Please, please, please... If someone reading this knows what the name of that orchestral piece that Mann used right at the beginning of the montage is called, please e-mail me!!! I've been trying to figure it out for 15 years, and no, I'm not kidding.
