Film Music

really liked it 4.0  ·  Rating Details ·  5 Ratings  ·  1 Review
Just hearing a few notes from certain songs can bring a movie back to life—whether the Doors’ “The End” from Apocalypse Now, Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson” in The Graduate, or John Williams’ scores to such blockbusters as Jaws, Star Wars, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. But what is the relationship between film and music—where does the film begin and the music end?

Shelves: music
Good introduction over the central problems and terms in film music theory and history. Built around analyzes of Metropolis, The Big Sleep, North By Northwest, The Graduate, American Graffiti, Star Wars and Avatar. It's a bit oddly written (at least in the Norwegian translation), but it sort of works anyway.
