“[She] teaches men how to be intimate and make love,” Marquardt told Consequence of Sound. “Intimacy is one of the hardest things to learn in life and it is becoming increasingly challenging in our modern, technologically-driven society. Ultimately, ‘She’s Lost Control’ is a story about compassion and reaching out to other human beings.”
The film will have its North American debut at South by Southwest in March.
Now it turns out that “Human Sadness” is actually from a documentary that Casablancas and Taufique worked on in 2013, and is not in “She’s Lost Control.”.
On Facebook Taufique wrote me: “Actually, the song referenced in the article is one that Julian and I worked on together for a documentary last year, not SLC.”
Taufique tells me the documentary is called “Unseen Beauty,” and “it’s a doc about Julian’s stepfather, the painter, Sam Adoquei.”

The Strokes singer Julian Casablancas has signed New York’s Cerebral Ballzy to his Cult Records label and will release the group’s second album, Jaded & Faded, next year.
The group has a Ramones-style punk-pop sound, as you can hear if you check out the video posted above. The black and white video is a tribute of sorts to the New York of the Velvet Underground’s mid-’60s, as well as French New Wave cinema and Edie Sedgwick.
