"Malena" was the score that I was praying would take home oscar gold, however, my hopes were shattered when the award went to "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." While, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," is a good score; I believe it cannot possibly hold up in light of Morricone's spectacular score. Why "Malena" you ask? Well, the reason is this: It left me breathless. The theme is one of the absolute best in film score history, and it is repeated well
throughout the score, which, by the way, also contains amazing secondary themes
and motifs. I believe that this score should get better recognition, and I hope that this happens, because a score like this shouldn't be kept in the dark. I caught myself humming the main theme from this score, and I was deeply moved by what I heard. Morricone is a master of his craft, and this is a masterpiece!
