heaven adores you

heaven adores you

While heaven adores you was not the best documentary ever to see the light of day, I’m super grateful for the attempt by the filmmakers to put a chronology of Smith’s adult life together, stitching into a quilt all the pieces of footage floating haphazard on the internet, long slow pans of locations in Portland and New York and Los Angeles beneath interviews and all those perfect songs.

What I’m left with this morning is “Happiness” on repeat, the urge to seek out old friends I’ve broken bonds with to mend our fences, and a gentle reminder to call your mom.
