SCORE Looks Like a Great Documentary about the Music of Film

Film music is having a bit of a moment right now, in case you haven’t noticed. Heck, Hans Zimmer just performed at Coachella. Movie scores have always been important, though, for as long as film has been a medium of creative expression. There’s a new documentary coming out that highlights the value of film scores and the people behind them, called SCORE, and based on the official trailer, it looks like a fascinating journey into the part of movies a lot of us might not spend that much time appreciating.

From what we gather, the movie includes archival footage, as well as new interviews with some of the most important people in the musical side of the film industry, including Zimmer (whose work includes InceptionPirates of the Caribbean, and so many others), Danny Elfman (The Nightmare Before ChristmasEdward Scissorhands), Quincy Jones (The Color Purple, also he’s just Quincy Jones), Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (The Social Network, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), and others.

Even just the documentary’s trailer brings up some illuminating points. James Cameron calls the film score “the heartbeat of the film” because, as Jones put it, “We will make you feel anything we want you to feel,” and he’s totally right.

What we feel now is excited to see this movie when it hits select theaters beginning June 16. Learn more about the movie here, and let us know in the comments what your favorite film score is.
