Paint It Black

Recommended Posts

Nothing like dropping into Medieval Japan, some time after 1615, where a slightly malfunctioning Shogun holds sway. I've been on the other side of the fence, in basic/enhanced analog cable TV world, so this is my first look at HBO's "Westworld." Fortunately, these folk aren't infected with "save money, don't bother to light the set" disease practiced by the likes of Ridley Scott. A Koto-based version of The Rolling Stones "Paint It Black" isn't exactly exotic to this viewer of NHK's "Blends" short films, where Pop tunes have been covered by Japanese musicians playing traditional instruments. But it is an interesting touch; reminds me of what the Jazz/Pop band "Hiroshima" has been doing since 1979.;)
