DarkJade’s Films of Meaning – Amadeus

by DarkJade

Back in the 80’s there came a Film with Immense Depth and Impact…

Amadeus.

One of the Coolest Things about Amadeus is it was made some 28 years ago, and yet watching it, you’d never know.

That’s because frankly, This Film is Timeless…

Now there are a hand full of Films that I simply Love, but only watch on a Rare Occasion. One Being Franko Zeffirelli’s 1968 Romeo And Juliet

One Being Baz Luhrmann’s Moulon Rouge!

And the other being Amadeus…

And Let me tell you why.

Each of these Films are Brilliant, but also, Very Sad…

In Fact they all Basically Break My Heart… And so, I might watch  each of them maybe every 2 or 3 years… At most.

But That’s Just Me.

The Bottom Line, is Each of These Films is Brilliant, Deep, and Heart Felt… A Must See really, especially for the True Romantic at Heart.

At The Helm of this Grand Adventure that is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Life, is Tom Hulce

Tom Hulce’s Performance is Memorable, Emotional/Passionate and Hilarious…

In fact rumor has it that the laugh he uses in this Film he actually created for the Character/Role, and after the Making of The Film was never able to do it again.

Tom Hulce was Nominated for an Oscar for This Role.

But The Actor that actually walked away with the Oscar in this Film, was F. Murray Abraham… And I have to tell you, he is Tremendous.

And The Makeup for him as an Older Man, Exceptional.

But as I watched it just last week, the Performance by a man that I came to love in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Mr. Jeffrey Jones…

Also known for his Role in Beetlejuice

But in his Role as Emperor Joseph II, He Truly Shined.

Now Keep in Mind, I have always loved his character in this Film…

Frankly, he’s a Comedic Genius.

But all these years later, it is truly He that is the Most Timeless in This Film… Watch and see. He is Hilarious.

Amadeus is not simply a Historical Period Piece, but rather a Testimonial of The Love of Music, and the Innate Talent of My Absolute All Time Favorite Composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart…

See This Film…

If Not for the Sheer Genius of The Acting, Production, or Directing…

Than See It For The Music…

The Music…

The Music

Thanks for Reading/Listening
