Bloody Great! I loved it. Marvin Gaye "What's Going On?" with terrific audience participation. Whole hearted and generous and they were also singing the words. A video joy.
And James Garner. I love "Marlowe" and keep seeing new nuances in it. And Rita Moreno. Wonderful. And Bruce.

Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

This song was in at least one decent movie, eliminates stress, can expand your conscious mind, and if timed right, might even get you laid.
