Tom Hanks in Castaway, about 1.5 minutes
Hanks is figuring out where to go next. He is superb.
Facing decisions like that are scary and I always wondered about all those crossroads humanity has faced and abilities challenged..
Ralph Macchio vs. Steve Via
Cy Cooder played for Macchio; Macchio is admired for his mime skill.
The final battle, about 5 minutes long. Watch the final minutes if you don't want to see the whole thing.
This movie is Crossroads, a loose story telling of the legendary Robert Johnson where he supposedly sold his soul to the devil in order to have success as a musician. This movie follows the journey of Willie Brown who has done such with his friend Eugene Martone, a classical guitarist at Julliard. Martone saves Willie Brown by offering to play against lead guitarist played by Steve Vai.
Steve Vai practiced for a year to learn how to play badly at the last scene. It was awesome.
And just for the heck of it, here are two other Devil Gets Your Soul movies:
Charlie Daniel's epic violin and Devil Went Down to Georgia
about 3 minutes long.
Mick Jagger, Sympathy for the Devil
About 8 minutes long
Rolling Stones have put their stamp on this.
No one can beat it.
These performances hang about in my mind even though I am lost at intersections sometimes. My husband usually rescues me, and God provides for me. God holds my soul and heart. Devil does not hang at my intersections.
We are back from Cow Chipping County and had an amazing time. My brother is special to me. We scooped up some cow patties, laughed, ate catfish, and shared our memories. Good times.
Please let me know about crossroads you have had.
