Richael Jaeckson big in I-Ran

I really liked the film version of Persepolis which I finally saw on DVD just last month. If you watch the extras, Marjane Satrapi is a ball of kinetic energy intensely involved in every aspect of the filmmaking process.

I think everybody gravitates to the hilariously off-key version of "Eye of The Tiger", but for me the funniest scene in the movie is when young Marjane is walking down the street and she passes a gauntlet of street sellers whispering their black market music wares; mostly it's bad prog-rock but the laugh comes when one guy whispers "Richael Jaeckson."
