2/365: “Downtown” by Majical Cloudz
Last night, my wife and I finished watching the new Netflix series The OA. We marathoned through the final five episodes of the series and though the finale has received a fair amount of justifiable criticism, I crossed the finish line shaking and crying and wholly moved. I can’t remember ever having such an overwhelming physical and emotional reaction to any movie or television show in my life. I’d rather not say anything about the show itself as it is best consumed spoiler and context free but I will say that something unexpected and breathtaking happens in the final moments of the fifth episode and the scene is accompanied by this gorgeous song by Canadian pop duo Majical Cloudz. Nearly 24 hours later, I still can’t shake The OA from my mind.
