Movie Info

What makes a film score unforgettable? SCORE: A FILM MUSIC DOCUMENTARY brings Hollywood's elite composers together to give viewers a privileged look inside the musical challenges and creative secrecy of the world's most international music genre: the film score. A film composer is a musical scientist of sorts, and the influence they have to complement a film and garner powerful reactions from global audiences can be a daunting task to take on. The documentary contains interviews with dozens of film composers who discuss their craft and the magic of film music while exploring the making of the most iconic and beloved scores in history: "James Bond", "Star Wars," "Indiana Jones," "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Titanic," "The Social Network," "Mad Max: Fury Road," and "Psycho."

"Score" does leave you with a real respect for these people, and their tireless search for ways to turn emotion into sound. An honest appreciation for their literally invisible work. And a determination, I hope, to go out and buy some of it ...

This is a movie that is too frenetic and basic to make a substantial impression. I appreciated a kernel of observation here and there, but not enough for me to give it a whole-hearted embrace.

Unfortunately, it aims to be as comprehensive as possible about a subject as old as cinema itself, and as a result ends up feeling both breezy and overlong.
