Newman captures what's important.
on June 7, 2001
Thomas Newman's score for "Up Close and Personal" captures everything that is needed for such a romantic movie: the emotion. To call the movie a romantic comedy is to shortchange it: it's so much more than that, and the music plays a large part in bringing out that heartfelt emotion and feeling that the story breathes. With sweeping moments of score that practically scream tears, Newman gets everything in place, every emotion down, every feeling within each new chord and flow. This, along with his work on "The Green Mile," is definitely worth a listen.
