The Last Flight

The Last Flight, originally uploaded by deanv41.

The mural here is along Harrison around 14th Street. I post it as a recent glimpse of painted death writ upon the city that I am reminded of this evening as I watch a movie.
In Bruges was unexpectedly powerful.
The references in it stated, visual, and tonal to Don't Look Now are heartbreaking. A child dies again and it can't be shaken. In place of Venice and the restoration of a church, we are in Bruges amidst a Breughel scene of purgatory.
