As sad as it is that David Bowie passed away , it’s been sort of great these past few days to hear everyone’s tributes and see the legacy of a true original in the music world. Yes, his catalog is brilliant on its own, and Bowie was always great when he appeared in movies. Many, many films have used Bowie songs for various scenes over his career. His songs have appeared on soundtracks of all sorts, but special are the scenes that use a song perfectly and create something truly iconic. Below are my seven favorite uses of a David Bowie song in a film. 7) A Knight’s Tale (2001). This was a damned weird movie, and was very much of its time, but there was something kind of wonderful about a medieval-style fairy tale using pop music, both on the soundtrack and in the actual scenes themselves. In this use, Heath Ledger’s pretend knight has to try to convince a banquet hall that he is who he says he is and makes up a dance for it. Miraculously, it works, and the minstrels’ baroque playing of Bowie’s “Golden Years” melts into the actual... 6) Grosse Pointe Blank (1996). This movie has about a billion good songs in it—along with John Cusack’s later High Fidelity , this may be the best jukebox soundtrack I can think of—from the late ’70s and ’80s including the English Beat’s “Mirror... ” For one of the most poignant (and on the nose, if I’m honest) moments of the movie, when hitman Martin Blank (Cusack) holds his friend’s new baby while at his high school reunion, what better music could there be than Bowie and Queen’s “Under... 5) Frances Ha (2012). Even if you find Noah Baumbach’s movies sort of New York Twee, it’s hard to not like Greta Gerwig and her unabashed exuberance. So, for a scene when Frances is running and indeed dancing down the Manhattan streets, Baumbach chose what is arguably David Bowie’s most joyous and upbeat sounding track: “Modern Love,” off of the 1983 album Let’s Dance. It sounds very ’80s, but it paints a picture for damn sure. And when Frances gets up to top speed and straight-up Billy Elliots her way home, it’s kind of magical. 4) The Martian (2015). I couldn’t find the actual clip of this movie, probably because it hasn’t been on Blu-ray for more than a couple days. But when watching Ridley Scott ‘s latest sci-fi epic, with more fun and human emotion than most, a standout moment came when Mark Watney (Matt Damon) on Mars and all the crew back on Earth work to get ready to bring him home.

Holy Harlots examines the intersections of social marginality, morality, and magic in contemporary Brazil by analyzing the beliefs and religious practices related to the Afro-Brazilian spirit entity Pomba Gira. Said to be the disembodied spirit of an unruly harlot, Pomba Gira is a controversial figure in Brazil. Devotees maintain that Pomba Gira possesses an intimate knowledge of human affairs and the mystical power to intervene in the human world. Others view this entity more ambivalently. Kelly E. Hayes provides an intimate and engaging account of the intricate relationship between Pomba Gira and one of her devotees, Nazaré da Silva. Combining Nazaré’s spiritual biography with analysis of the gender politics and violence that shapes life on the periphery of Rio de Janeiro, Hayes highlights Pomba Gira’s role in the rivalries, relationships, and struggles of everyday life in urban Brazil. A DVD of the film Slaves of the Saints is included.
