Lou Reed’s “Red Shirley”

Lou Reed, probably the biggest single influence on my life and thought, has made a movie about his one hundred year-old cousin. One of the things we always loved about Lou was his empathy (“Lisa Says,” “Candy Says,” “I’ll Be Your Mirror,” etc…), and now that he’s no longer mainlining meth I bet he’s as charming as ever.
