Milla Jovovich... Gentleman Who Fell
Before Resident Evil: Extinction comes out and the critics slam Milla for her acting ability,let’s all remind ourselves about her other skills in the realm of singing and songwriting. She might have had a musical career had her album, The Divine Comedy, been more commercially successful. It was a critical success though.
Back in 1994, I was alone in a dark room with a TV, in ah… shall well say an altered state of consciousness, when Milla’s video for the Gentleman Who Fell aired. I was completely sucked in and transported to god knows where (I could go on and on about the various aspects of film history referenced in the video). When I came back to planet earth, I remember thinking, “Wow, I wanna have her baby!” I ran out and bought her CD the very next day. I still have it.
I didn’t know about Milla Jovovich before that night, but I’ve always been thankful that this was my first impression of her.
