Yesterday, walking about in my stoned stupor, listening to a Haim remix at about 110bpm. I observed at least a dozen consecutive civilian actions, flows, movements, developments that synchronised seamlessly with the music. My POV camerawork was without flaw. ‘Do these people know they’re walking on and off buses, in and out of shops, and larupping their children perfectly in time?’ Asked your Humble Narrator. It didn’t last much longer than a third of the tune, but it was wholly satisfying. I’d call this particular phenomena, ‘movie eyes’ (off the top of my head) or ‘movie eyes (off the top of my head)’.
