Cerebral and intriguing with crisp, colorful orchestration and lots of that extensive use of twelve-tone technique I love so very much-- Rosenman being one only a couple mainstream film composers to use said technique in this particular context.

I remember hearing this score in-film when I was a college student and being enthralled by it; it was brilliant to me then and it still is now. Challenging doesn't mean bad and though I may be one of the few, I think I will always be in love with this kind of film score writing. It's just the sort of atypical methodology and unconventional structuring that film music could use a lot more of, even today.

This score gave its film such distinct personality with Rosenman's diverse instrumental palette and atonally-driven sense of forward motion. This score deserved a reprint and I'm glad La-La Land Records gave more people a chance to discover this gem.
