Siegfried Idyll   Sunday, December 4, 2011 (1:24 p.m.) 

Sorry to correct you here, but the Siegfried Idyll was originally composed as a present to his wife to celebrate the birth of Richard Wagner´s son Siegfried 1869, first performed at his villa in Tribschen near Lucerne, Switzerland, 6 years prior to the composition of opera of the same name. He did as a matter of fact incorporate the theme into a love-scene between his character Siegfried and Brunhilde. Please be more thorough in your research as well as in the StarWars trilogy where you advise people not to buy the original RSO release because of dated sound, when actually it is superior to the terribly "remastered" and normalized special editions.

Hmm, seems more like the director and composer themselves were referring to the opera, and Christian was simply quoting their words, not himself outrightly stating that the Siegfried Idyll was originally part of the opera. So seems more like Cronenberg and Shore are at fault in misidentifying what the Siegfried Idyll truly is.

I was aware of all of that but decided not to clog up the review with it. I referenced it with the line "purpose behind the composition..." in the background portion, which naturally concentrates on the opera given that the opera is what matters to this movie. Point me to the factually incorrect words in the review.

So in other words, since my opinion does not match your assessment, I am "wrong"...?

If you ever do have a valid correction, please follow the instructions here:

Hello Christian,

that´s what I did immediately after you posted your "Empire Strikes Back" re-review. I even added a wikipedia-link to support my view of things, but I never got an answer. Anyways, keep up the good work.
