• In Response to: One sentence in that review just about proves ... (Jockolantern)

Thanks for this comment Jockolantern! After reading Christian's review I sank into despair but now I can see the hope on the horizon :-) I haven't heard Elfman's score yet, but The Silence of the Lambs is also one of my favourite, so Red Dragon can't be so lousy as it seems to be...

> It's no wonder Mr. Clemmensen didn't enjoy the score. He states in one of

> the listening experience.

> Silence of the Lambs is still my favorite of the three scores just because
> it is such a fascinating listen APART from the film. Howard Shore's score
> seems boring on the first few listens, but over time you begin to dig down
> into the musical textures and realize what hauntingly surreal beauty lies
> there. . . The same will probably lie true for Elfman's Red Dragon.

> You cannot review a score for a Hannibal movie not expecting some dark
> underscore; that's what makes the three scores great and Christian needs
> to realize this, I think, and give Elfman more credit for his efforts.

> Sayonara!
