Close Encounters of the Third Kind 40th Anniversary Release.
It was the 1-2 knockout punch to my sci fi loving brain that I never recovered from and made me what I am today. Having seen Star Wars over the summer a total of 16 times before it went away, it was now November. Once again I was dragging my mom out to take me to see this wierd movie That I couldn't even really explain to her except to show her pictures I had cut out from magazines about this alien ufo movie I had to see. I had saved up 16.00 dollars to pay my way and for the gas to get us to Indianapolis about 40 miles away.
Score: A Film Music Documentary
Maybe Doc's are not your thing. Maybe soundtracks are no big deal, and that's all okay. We all experience the films we like in lots of different ways. For those of you who have any interest at all or are even slightly interested this movie is very compelling and insightful. Complete with interviews from such great cinematic composers as John Williams of well...Everything just about. Hans Zimmer who has created much of the musical thematic landscape we have experienced over the last ten years or so and Danny Elfman who has delighted us with his completely original eclectic presence Since Batman released way back in 1989. If these names are unfamiliar, then this documentary probably won't do much for you, but for fans of cinema and the music of films it is a must see offering rare glimpses into the genius and detail composers give us.
