I was curious to see how you'd tackle this one. I think you managed it well.
You reviewed the music by itself and made solid observations about it. I've only heard the score by itself once and found it to be a mixed experience, very viceral, but not much more than that. I hadn't heard "Titus" yet.
After I heard "Titus" and then revisted the film it was pretty surprising how close they were. And I thought "Gladiator" was bad! Anyway, you did a good job with this review, a tough one to say the least. And you enlighted me about the Macedonian folk song - hadn't heard that story yet.
