I was thinking about seeing Stop Making Sense with Miles last year. I was looking through old diaries and blogs that I kept to chronicle our days. Many of the movies we saw together were unmemorable. I read my account and I do not remember that day or that movie. But seeing Stop Making Sense was remarkable and memorable. It was the last movie we saw together. It was fun to see. We talked about it and we talked with friends outside the theater about it when it was over. Nico’s screen test looked at us from across the street in the Samek Museum’s window display. It is something small– seeing a movie together– but it is something I will remember fondly forever and probably talk about it as being more important than it was at the time. I remember things tragic and anodyne in such detail, but all the details are important when he is involved and I need to remember.
