Critic Reviews for SCORE: A Film Music Documentary
Documentary maker Matt Schrader bills this as "the definitive look at the craft of film composing," though he takes a narrow route through the subject, focusing on the symphonic composers who hammer out music cues for big-studio projects.
That said, Score serves well as an introduction to the meticulous process by which soundtracks are created, and includes numerous case studies that reveal just how music contrives to shape our movie-going experiences.
A genial 93-minute dash through the history, process and contemporary practice of film composition.
Score: A Film Music Documentary is a celebration of the artists who create the musical heartbeat of the movies we love
Along the way, some treasure is mined from the film's numerous speakers, all of whom seemed happily enamored with their work.
Audience Reviews for SCORE: A Film Music Documentary
What a shame to see such a simplistic and forgettable discussion about the subject, considering all the history and evolution of music in films, while the movie also focuses way too much on American Cinema, spending even half an hour of pure hagiography on John Williams.
