Music and the Movies
I'm teaching a class in film music these days, which is loads of fun. Last week we learned about the classical Hollywood film score and watched Casablanca, and this week it's John Williams and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Wanna watch some good movies about music? There have been a few noteworthy documentaries of late:
Dig: A documentary filmed over seven years tracking the relationship between The Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Dandy Warhols (pictured above). Apparently, it's amazing. Watch the trailer here.
Festival Express: Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead, The Band, and others hop on board a train and tour across Canada. Hilarity ensues. Watch the trailer here.
The Language of Music: Details the legendary career of recording engineer and producer Tom Dowd. Watch the trailer here.
