Usually I cringe whenever a film is set in a specific time period and the music being used in the background just doesn’t fit or is a decade too late to have been around then. But somehow, in some odd way, this movie makes everything work.
Instead of taking away from the movie by being distracting and annoying, the soundtrack enhances the entire film. The music makes Marie feel more relatable, and to the audience, helps to convey the image that she is just a normal teenaged girl, listening to normal music. I still don’t understand how this works so well. Maybe it’s because I have an odd fascitaion with Marie Antoinette. Maybe it’s because Sofia Coppola is a genius. I don’t know. But seriously, this soundtrack is great.
…I’ll post videos later with some examples.
Not only is this a great movie (OMG TOMSTU!) but it’s got a freakin’ fantastic soundtrack.
GO AND WATCH IT RIGHT NOW.
I’m a flighty person, and I never really cared enough about a particular subject to sit down and write about it every single day, let alone be cool enough to gain actual followers. This whole blog thing is for a project only. That being said, here’s whats gotta happen. I’m supposed to disect and discuss and examine the relationship between music and movies and I’m supposed to do this all on this here Tumblr. Exciting, right?
Yeaaaaah, not really. I’m going to be honest. I have a slight idea of what has gotta go down here, but I have absolutely no clue how to go about it. I’d rather be sitting in front of my TV watching said movies and listening to said music than be here, writing all this, but I’m going to do it and I’m going to enjoy it, dammit. So instead of over-thinking and over-analazying and being my usual indecisive self, I’m just going to jump right in and throw videos and music and playlists and fancy blog posts right in your face. Be ready, it’s a-comin’.
Alright, let’s do this.
