Today on FilmTracks! – Great Scenes With Music

Andrew Alderete February 28, 2012 0

No matter what time period, genre, or aesthetic, the films that stand out in our memory are the ones that give us an experience we will never forget. Some of the time, these experiences are dictated by a subconscious emotional response, while others are just the plan exclamation, “.. this is so awesome.” It’s no mistake that these unforgettable movie moments are a result of two things: 1) the image we see on-screen, and 2) the film music. Combining the two makes something un-forgettable. In this episode, Andrew, Jessie, and our FilmTracks expert Catherine will join (via Skype!) in a conversation about great movie moments, the music behind them, and why they transcend the passage of time.
