I was impressed with the entire cast and loved the cinematography as well. I can’t wait to get the soundtrack. In fact, I’ve decided I think I am definitely in need of a musicals playlist. So many favorites to include – Glee, Chicago, Wicked, you name it!
Love that color! I thoroughly enjoyed the show, and was glad to see Nine come up several times. Oh, and the Scorsese montage (I love a good montage), so awesome. I love how they opened with the music from Last Temptation of Christ. And of course, there were scenes from one of my favorite films, Age of Innocence. Love that movie! And Scorsese used a phrase that I just love, and it’s one of the reasons I love movies so much, “cinematic experience”. For me, movies are just not about the actual movie, but also about the entire experience: the anticipation, sitting in the darkened theater, the shared investment and reactions with the rest of the audience, the lights coming up and the credits rolling. For me, I have to see all the previews (that’s part of my experience), and I stay through the end of the credits. I want the WHOLE thing. And it is one of the reasons that no matter how many DVDs we have, no matter how easy it is to order through Netflix or watch something in the comfort of your own home (with no screaming kids, phones ringing, people talking, etc.) – it is the essential cinematic experience that I love so much. So thanks, Marty, for reminding me of that.
