Soundtrack mirrors film’s mood
By Eiiiily Pyeatt
“Girl, Interrupted” questioned and
explored madness during the sixties
through the eyes of writer Susanna
Kaysen. With the sixties came a time of
chaos, confusion and criticism of what
classified one as crazy.
Artists of the time attempted to
capture complex emotions through the
power of music.
The film adaptation of Kaysen’s
memoirs is creatively complimented
by a soundtrack that combines modem
music with vintage tunes from the
Not only is the quality of the
soundtrack impressive, but it has sub
tleties that compliment the authenticity
of the film.
Soundtrack producer James
Mangold’s collection of songs actually
originated after he was inspired by a
compilation CD he listened to while
writing the film’s script. Mangold’s
personal collection of tracks was given
to each of the actors as a sort of audio
visualization mechanism to transport
them into the world Kaysen experi
The stellar soundtrack begins with
Wilco’s moving “How to Fight
Loneliness.” The song sets the tone of
the album, which resonates with the
madness of the ‘60s and the poetic
striving for a sense of understanding.
Van Morrison’s version of Bob
Dylan’s “It’s All Over Now Baby Blue”
continues into the somewhat hypnotic
“The Weight” by The Band.
Classics by The Mamas and The
Papas, Jefferson Airplane and Aretha
Franklin follow for a full-bodied and
coherent collection that portrays the
film well and offers a sort of trans
portation to the past.
Just when you thought the sound

FD’s offers classic down-home
dishes: barbecue, chicken, catfish and
brisket. This cooking is the meat-on
the-grill kind. In fact it’s so old-fash
ioned it’s just cooking without the “g.”
For starters, the wings are solid.
They aren’t especially spicy, but
thanks to the six-pack of sauces on the
table, you can kick ‘em up a notch
I he appetizers are modestly sized,
but they are quite deceptive. You can
look around and see what I mean.
There is a huge roll of paper towels
right on the table. The pop glasses are
so big you might have to use two
hands to pick them up.
Be prepared, because the meal is
about to dwarf all of the big stuff seen
up until this point.
Each meal comes in a basket
about a foot and a half wide. You can
stock it with a number of different
entrees, but first I’ll tell you about hie
The lodge fries are big ol’ steak
fries that take Burger King’s variety
behind the woodshed. The drunken
apples do not include liquor but are a
sobering reality to Boston Market’s
version of the same. And FD’s com
on-the-cob isn’t the wimpy kind you
would find wrapped in tin foil at Long
John Silver’s. Beans, cole slaw and
potato salad are also offered.
As for the entrees, think gargantu
an. I tried the chicken strips, the ribs
and the barbecue chicken sandwich.
No, I didn’t eat all of them, nor could
anyone ever hope to do so. But they
were meaty, hearty and dripping all
over my plate.
There is easily more quantity than
quality at FD’s, but size doesn’t win
the battle by much. Go see for your
self, but go early - even during mid
week there was more than an hour
wait. And it’s not too expensive -
especially when you realize you’ll eat
enough for two meals.
So order srihall. You’ll still win"
