Classic Movies and Their Soundtracks

with Marc Lapadula and David Langlitz

This talk will analyze several classic movies from two entertaining and thought-provoking perspectives. The first will unravel the powerful psychological subtexts and serious social themes that all truly ambitious film directors feel compelled to smuggle into their work. The second will decipher the crucial role the musical composer plays in aiding the filmmaker in successfully accomplishing the above task. A great film score must move the story forward while establishing and articulating the emotional mood and tone throughout the unreeling of the narrative. Using melody, harmony, rhythm and orchestration, a great movie soundtrack enhances the director’s vision in an indelibly memorable way.
