Now Playing: Whisper of a Thrill
I CAN'T BELIEVE I've just read that abominal review by whatever his name is that gave his opinion on the soundtrack to Meet Joe Black!
I think the music to the film is beautiful and magical and really emphasises the emotions that are being shown through the characters.
The sex scene- Whisper of a Thrill on teh soundtrack- between Brad Pitt and Claire Forlani is so innocent and delicate that the music would have been so hard to compose for it.
However Thomas Newman knew what had to go into that piece of music to make it work, the delicacy of the piano playing and strings with its chromatic scales and ever so slightly clashing chords which keeps it in the catagory of a 20th century composer makes the listener and watcher want to cry. The sequence played by the strings- you know the one- is classic theme which plays throughout the film.
I've seen Little Women and i may have been younger and not of noticed the music, the same goes for the Horse whisperer however i saw Meet Joe Black and went straight out to buy it. Everyone has the right to their own opinion but i thoroughly disagree with the ponce that wrote yours!
