Tuesday Tune: 2 Versions of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Over The Misty Mountains Cold” For Your Listening Pleasure
Came across these and wanted to share. Both are wonderful versions/interpretations of ‘Over The Misty Mountains Cold. by J R R Tolkien.
Check them out after the jump.
Here’s the synopsis of the film:
A bookshop renowned for its rare works is mysteriously and completely filled with copies of a book entitled 1, which doesn’t appear to have a publisher or author. The strange almanac describes what happens to the whole of humanity in the space of a minute. A police investigation begins and the bookshop staff are placed in solitary confinement by the Bureau for Paranormal Research (RDI Reality Defense Institute). As the investigation progresses, the situation becomes more complex and the book increasingly well known, raising numerous controversies (political, scientific, religious and artistic). Plagued by doubts, the protagonist has to face facts: reality only exists in the imagination of individuals.
‘Enigmatic in form, encyclopedic in scope, and leaving room between its lines for many different readings, Sparrow’s truly singular film encapsulates the whole of human experience in eccentric, elliptical cross-section. It is all at once science fiction, political allegory, transcendental mystery and free-form documentary, recalling the early works of Peter Greenaway in its vast referential breadth, its mannered blurring of fact and fiction, and the beauty of its tableau-like images.’

If you haven’t checked out Geek and Sundry’s show ‘Written by a Kid’, here’s a great place to jump in.
The premise is simple – they sit down with a kid, have them tell a story, and then they produce that story as a little short. It’s great stuff.
This week we have: Robots Attack by Maile Martinez.
