• Criterion Tube: Late and Later Night with Young Chloë and Spike

    By Mary Manning

    Sometimes a giggle catches on and produces more giggles. This is evidenced here by twenty-three-year-old Chloë Sevigny, as she barely gets through an interview with David Letterman wherein she is pressed for info on Harmony and an upcoming trip to Tokyo. Sometimes such giggles give me the impression that the giggler is faking, but Sevigny seems legit goofy. I remember ’98! Youth!

    Spike Jonze’s appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn only contains about thirty seconds of real talking, but it’s only to play a game and it’s at the end and I doubt you’ll even watch all the way through. But the first two minutes are amazing. He’s introduced with a self-made mock bio film that is both adorable and hilarious. Young Spike! I remember ’99! Again: Youth!

    That Letterman clip was the day before my 25th birthday and add in that Grant Lee Buffalo was the musical act, it should have been an episode I watched, but instead I was working all night at the video store I ran, catching a few minutes of sleep, then having work 14 hours on my birthday. Nonetheless, love Chloe and saw Last Days of Disco twice at the theater.
