A Must See if You Love Music and Movies
25 June 2017 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A fairly comprehensive documentary about composers of music scores, their process in working with directors, their relationship with musicians and their reactions to the finished product. The film focuses somewhat on Jerry Goldsmith, John Williams and Hans Zimmer (who speaks quite a bit in the film and is amusing) but many other composers are included. The changing nature of film scores over time is explored. A film historian and a psychologist also make appearances. One of my favorite parts looked at different instruments that have been used in soundtracks. I will probably be paying a lot more attention to the score in films I see in the future!
