Jonathan Demme's direction was praised for its idiosyncrasy. The New York Times called him "American cinema's king of amusing artifacts: blinding bric-a-brac, the junkiest of jewelry, costumes so frightening they take your breath away." The Washington Post wrote that "Jonathan Demme has nailed one with this playful, but dangerous, gangster farce." ~ Wikipedia
Check out this Tavis Smiley blog posting of 'Goodbye Horses', a song from Married to the Mob but much better known for one of Demme's other movies, Silence of the Lambs.
Take a look and a listen to Goodbye Horses - The Garvey Remixes, his lyrics, the vocals performed by Q Lazzarus, and what Garvey's musical composition is really all about.
