This film is always rather annoyingly overlooked but it is, in my opinion one of Steven Spielbergs best films, the story is one that everybody can relate too, you don;t have to be a schoold boy in occupied japan!! The soudntrack is moving and awe inspiring, for thises who have seen this film, the scene with the plane or the 'Cadalac of the Skies' is astoudning. Buy it, listen to it and please watch the film.
John Williams' score for Empire of the Sun literally blew me away. This is a monumental, beautiful, poetic score that, like Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan, conveys the horrors of World War II, The vocals are top notch, the use of Suo Gân is mesmerising, also the use percussive instruments on tracks such as The British Grenadiers and The Streets Of Shanghai is precise and there also times for lighter more lively moments such as Jim's New Life as well as moments that brings back the brassy adventurous feel for the Indiana Jones films.
Well Done John Williams.
