5.0 out of 5 stars No other word than Beautiful, 8 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Gladiator (Audio CD)
Some people find it hard to give music the description of beauty. Listening to this score will change anyone's perception of music forever. It is amazing, it grafts every possible emotion together to form an overall montage of defining beauty. Tracks such as "Progeny", "Wheat" and "Sorrow" link the true essence of what both this score and the film is about, together, giving clear indication of the emotions felt. Then there are tracks such as "the battle" and "the glory of Rome" that are filled with such exhilirating power that will soar your soul to new heights. And then, there are the three final tracks, which to me make one track - "Elysium", "Honor him" and "Now We Are Free" and what truly makes this score beautiful, they combine the purity of vocal and instrumental sounds to give an angelic, unforgettable finale to the album. Zimmer is fantastic in every thing he does, and this just goes to show the power he has, and Lisa Gerrard is just as majestic in both writing and performing many of the tracks. This score is probably the most effective I have ever heard and ranks up there in classic scores with others such as Morricone's "The Mission". If u buy only one score in your lifetime, buy this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Film Will Rush Through Your Bloodstream!, 8 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Quills [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
This film is a spectacle among spectacles! Doug Wright's fantastic screenplay from his own play, and Peter Kaufman's direction make this film engaging and thought provoking! Then comes the stars - Geoffrey Rush deserved more than an Oscar nomination for his role as De Sade, he is so believable, so wild and so passionate throughout the film's entirety. I would urge anyone to buy this simply because of his breathtaking performance! There is also excellent support from Kate Winslet, Jaoquin Phoenix and Michael Caine, who give such pasionate performances that make them all worthy of high recognition. This film is a masterpiece in its own right - it will shock, it will provoke, it will cause you to gasp and it will make you think - that is what I love about this film, it's a concoction of every emotion and links them all together so well and so effectively. Geoffrey Rush is simply a master of being a versatile actor, and this film may well be his finest hour...so far!! All I can say is buy, buy, buy, buy and if u can't find a pressie for your Son for Christmas or his birthday, buy him this - he'll thank you I promise!!
