Review

I haven't seen the film, I missed it when they showed it at Luna in the Park, but intend to get a copy of laserdisc (which still hasn't arrived). I have heard only good things about the film. The music I heard on ABC Classic FM, and was intrigued. I wasn't disappointed. This is unusual music, and is here for those who want something different in their campaigns. Sometimes discordant, sometimes magical -- it defies categorisation. There are insect noises in the background of some tracks, and I feel that the music would work best in outdoor environments. The score itself is short, and the track lengths suggest it would work best with descriptions and events. Highly recommended.
