For a predominately visual medium like cinema, its musical component plays a vital role as well, especially its score. In that essential musical accompaniment, the soul of the film is expressed whether it be sweepingly majestic fanfares or delicate lyrical pieces. This documentary explores the artistic role of this special musical discipline that completes the cinematic artistic creation process and the artists who have devoted their careers to this contribution. We explore the form's history and examine the masters who defined it with their own distinctive artistic vision. In doing so, the various components of this delicate creative process are revealed as they create a musical compositional work that has inspired a popular appreciation of music in all its forms, which gave some old musical ways their own new lease on life.Written by

I think I just need to make a Jerry Goldsmith Documentary
Maybe it is too much to cover the whole history of film music in one film. The golden age of cinema is overlooked and the silver age is touched on in this film. They started talking about Jerry Goldsmith then quickly cut over to John Williams. John Williams is a great composer, I think his best work is Superman (1979) that whole score is great. But we know Williams because he scored Lucas and Spielberg. All the other composers didn't have that exposure. What about Basil Poledouris Conan? Or James Horner's earlier work like Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan?
And going back to Goldsmith. The guy has the greatest library as a whole such creativity, experimentation. The film does show composers fiddling with instruments to get a certain sound. Guess who started that? Goldsmith. Who experimented with moog and electronics? Goldsmith. Guess who wrote the creepiest song ever for the anti christ? Goldsmith!
I guess I would say to anyone that is a slightest of a fan of this music, just start listening there is so much great stuff out there. And a lot of it is on Youtube, which I hope stays up there so people can learn and enjoy these people's work.
