One More Scene: Dancing Hazard

I’m not spoiling much with the clip above. It could be easily separated from the film it’s attached to, though it is also a very appropriate ending. Whit Stillman’s The Last Days of Disco is one of my favorite movies. It contains many of my favorite scenes. The ending credits being among its best because it embraces life’s greatest philosophies and needs—-the rapture of chaos, the joy of dancing, the love of love, the increase of personal strength, forgetting.

To quote Nietzsche: “I would only believe in a god who could dance. And when I saw my devil I found him serious, thorough, profound, and solemn: it was the spirit of gravity—through him all things fall. Not by wrath does one kill but by laughter. Come, let us kill the spirit of gravity!”

It’s okay for you to dance too. You know you want to.
