A documentary on the amazing John Williams. He scored most of the great movie epics of the last 30 years: Jaws, Close Encounters, Raiders of the Lost Ark and all its sequels, Star Wars and all its sequels!

His music is the best part of anything that he has worked on.

Williams score brought the fear and dread of the impending shark attacks in Jaws. He ( and George Lucas) had the great idea to have the music score for Star Wars contradict the pictures.  High Tech futuristic imagery with old style pseudo classical music underneath gave the potentially goofy movie a seriousness and elegance it wouldn’t have had otherwise.

 

Say what you want about the Phantom Menace…. John Williams music score, especially “Duel of the Fates” is excellent!

 

At 14:06 you can see the Carbon Freeze scene from The Empire Strikes Back with the original undubbed voices!
