(2010) Noah Baumbach. BAM.
As Florence drives along Sunset, either listening to Steve Miller Band or not (either way Steve Miller is applied to the soundtrack) she acts as if she is being watched, with a sort of fake nonchalance in the everyday, the whatevs glancing and driving. Her eyes consistently get caught moving up to the billboards passing along, very L.A., to self-conscious of being "random," which is often painfully mistaken for "natural," as if people are staring at you, and you pretend you don't care.
Steve Miller. At one point, Greenberg finds a John Mayer CD in her car. Greenberg was in a band, and rejected a big record deal rather than "sell out" - yet throughout most of the movie he is seen to wear a Steve Winwood t-shirt, from Winwood's cheesiest period, the mid-80s. If it is not an ironic gesture, by either the director Noah Baumbach, or the character Greenberg himself, in reference to the era of his coming of age, it at least might demonstrate that Greenberg doesn't care about the way he dresses anymore.
At a threshold of a fangling, new awareness, Greenberg invokes the scene in Wall Street, when Charlie Sheen as Bud Fox broods over the skyline of 1980s Manhattan from the deck of his East Side penthouse, and asks "Who am I?" Back then, impressionable but know-it-all Greenberg thought that was dorky. Now he gets it.
