I’m going back and forth between wanting to totally geek out and post an in-depth, spoiler-laden review/squee and having some tact and waiting till the film comes out.
I’ve decided on an in-between. If you’re as nerdy as I am and need to know the intimate details of comic to film adaptations, I will answer all your Scott Pilgrim-related questions. Scenes, quotes, characters, etc. So, ask and you shall receive.
Oh, and Bryan Lee O’Malley did a Q&A and I asked a question and he answered it and it was awesome. Sadly, my husband Edgar Wright was not there but there will be time for that. I don’t want to rush the engagement or anything.
My friend at FilmFracture and I totally disagree about this movie. She was dismayed with the big conflict of the film (if you were to ask my personal opinion, I would be too), but I tried not to let it get in the way of the narrative. Interesting perspectives. Anyone who’s seen it, I’d love to know your thoughts.
Vertigo:Suite/I. Prelude - Bernard Herrmann. Vertigo, 1958. Dir. Alfred Hitchcock.
(From Bernard Herrmann:The Film Scores, Conductor: Esa-Pekka Salonen, Orchestra: Los Angeles Philharmonic)
Herrmann is most closely associated with Hitchcock’s films, although he also worked with many other directors, including Orson Welles & Martin Scorcese. Of Vertigo, he said: “The story was so original, so haunting, that I knew pretty much what was called for, and I dredged it from my subconscious. As I scored it throughout, I found myself entirely in sympathy with what was going on the screen, and it is good to know that what I did musically with it is admired by so many.”
