When a movie is so good that it makes my day, my week, my month, and the soundtrack`s incredible as well, I call it a perfect movie. Danny Boyle`s 127 Hours is such a film.
I couldn`t have said it better:
"And while a movie about a guy stuck in a narrow gorge might not sound very interesting visually, Boyle is more than up to that challenge. The result is a white-knuckle rollercoaster that takes us deep into Ralston's psyche until we share the experience with him. Yes, it's shattering, but it's also exhilaratin...g to watch. Although "watch" isn't the right word for this film. "Experience" is more like it.
(...) And with music touching on just about every conceivable genre, AR Rahman has invented a fresh new way to score movies. (...) And that's the sign of masterful filmmaking."
And when the film ended with Sigur Ros - Festival, it reached heights I thought was impossible to reach.
While we`re talking about Sigur Ros, I`ll exploit this chance to highlight some of their other works.
The video alone is a masterpiece!
Here are the guys behind it all. They`re talking about how they make their music and play "Agaetis byrjun".
