"Something cyberpunk, I guess: It couldn't really have existed till this year, but in a subtle way. My score is a musicalization, where the dialog is vaguely lip-synched by live singers, and there are songs about the movie, and then sound effects appropriate to an old science fiction film."
The fact that I won't be seeing this makes me so, so sad. Songs about the movie? Live singerS? PLURAL? Sounds like Mr. Merritt is in top form here. It makes me wonder what the likelihood of an eventual DVD release really would be; I hope with a hope stronger than hope that one will arise.
Also, the very beautiful Molly Ringwald has plenty of nice things to say about Mr. Merritt, Kiki and Herb, and countless other things here. Apparently, Mr. Merritt told her she would be good in the role of the Other Mother in Coraline. What a world!
