As I write these lines I'm hearing this score for the first time. Wow!! Goldenthal proves one more time he has more talent than most of today's Hollywood newcomers together.
I may even dare to say this work ranks higher that Fire water paper or Final Fantasy, his most accomplished works to date, IMHO.
The music is modern yet classical, eerie yet haunting and beautiful, atonal in parts but always with a sense of direction and full of many and enjoyable motifs.
To me Goldenthal is the modern equivalent of Bernard Herrmann. His music has the same dark power and the same intensity as the former master's.
It's really rewarding to hear music as complex and brilliant as Othello.
Film music aficionados should be grateful to have a composer as skilled as Goldenthal working in today's movies.
A BLAST!!!!!!!!
