About the Movie
What makes a film score unforgettable? Featuring Hans Zimmer, James Cameron, Danny Elfman, John Williams, Quincy Jones, Trent Reznor, Howard Shore, Rachel Portman, Thomas Newman, Randy Newman, Leonard Maltin, and the late James Horner and Garry Marshall, SCORE: A FILM MUSIC DOCUMENTARY brings Hollywood's elite composers together to give viewers a privileged look inside the musical challenges and creative secrecy of the world's most international music genre: the film score. A film composer is a musical scientist of sorts, and the influence they have to complement a film and garner powerful reactions from global audiences can be a daunting task to take on. The documentary contains interviews with dozens of film composers who discuss their craft and the magic of film music while exploring the making of the most iconic and beloved scores in history: “James Bond”, “Star Wars,” “Indiana Jones,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Titanic,” “The Social Network,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and “Psycho.”

Fresh: Tidy and informative ...
Fresh: Score finally gives film composers their due with a documentary that's part geeky history lesson, part tribute to some of the greatest musical moments in movie history.
Fresh: "Score: A Film Music Documentary" spotlights such a rich and fascinating topic - the craft of motion picture scoring - that its mere presence proves a feast for the eyes and ears.
Fresh: Terrifically engaging.
Informative and Inspiring
This doc gives outsiders a detailed look into the world and workflow of film composition. It also provides a crash course in film music history. Very fascinating entertaining! Highly recommend to music, film and documentary lovers.
Informative and funny, with a couple of surprise moments.
HOW DID I NOT KNOW HANS ZIMMER WAS IN THE BUGGLES?! As a self professed "music snob," this moment came as a revelation for me. Sorry for the spoiler, but there are definitely a lot more moments just like that in "Score." When you add in the humor and the knowledge that these composers impart, it's an amazing look into a world of film we might take for granted, but never will again after watching this.
Greatest documentary of all time and truly inspiring. Watched it multiple times and get goosebumps every time. Great watch for anyone.
