The first reviewer has missed the boat on this wonderful score. Goldenthal has masterfully matched the overwrought drama in the original Shakespeare play (and the dizzying film by his wife), giving the film a marvelously fresh, inventive accompaniment.
It's hard to imagine a better score for this garish film than this. It stands up well by itself on the album...

I don't like five-star rating systems so I'll just say it sucks and be done with it. It didn't suck as much as this ludicrous review did though. Who the heck is that first reviewer? That guy needs to shut the up.
Man, this comment section contains more "bias" than above reviews

"let positive people do reviews"???
I wonder if the true reasoning behind your point of view that Filmtracks should "let positive people do reviews" lies more in your desire to see the review line up with your own opinion of a score than anything else. If you actually agreed with the negative opinion of the first review, I wonder if you'd write what you did, or even feel the need to write anything? I'd bet not.

What a well-reasoned and thought-out rebuttal of his point of view! Huzzah! Kudos! Encore!
