This month, the Busan Cinematheque will be showing a variety of music-themed movies with four recent documentaries - “Shine a Light” (2008, Martin Scorsese), “Young @ Heart” (2007, Stephen Walker), “The U.S. Vs John Lennon” (2006, David Leaf and John Scheinfeld), and “Cafe de los Maestros” (2008, Miguel Kohan) - as well as the award-winning musical, “Once (2006, James Carney). If you’re into the Rolling Stones, enjoy watching old people sing and dance, have a crush on John Lennon, or care to learn a thing or two about Argentinian tango, go with the documentaries. If you’re like me and don’t really care about any of these bands/music scenes, go with “Once.”
March 3 through March 19 at the Busan Cinematheque
