Movie Mom

I love this Slate article by Kim Gittleson on the best and worst uses of the classic jazz album, Kind of Blue, by Miles Davis, in film and television. The list includes an action film with real-life jazz-lover Clint Eastwood (“In the Line of Fire”), a romantic comedy with Julia Roberts (“The Runaway Bride”), and an underrated fantasy film (“Pleasantville”), as well as a television series about a serial killer (“Dexter”) and a high-class cop show (“The Wire”).
