Movies really can’t exist without music. Or most movies can’t. Even when they were silent music was played. So … think you know what the best movie music is? You can see a list of the top 100 and see if you agree with it.

I know absolutely nothing about some movie called “The Tree of LIfe”. Heck, I have to confess I don’t even know who Terrence Malick is. But someone has put together a list of the music used in that film.

And they say classical music is dead.

    Now Patty, I KNOW you’ve heard of Dirty Harry, which Malick directed. I haven’t seen Tree of Life, but it won the big prize at this year’s Cannes festival and I’ve heard good things about it.

    The most amazing thing to me about Malick is the table in his Wikipedia entry showing the various hats he’s worn in his films, of which the list is quite long. He writes, directs, produces, composes, and acts, and sometimes does many of those in a single film. Wow.

  2. Never seen any of the movies, but yes, I’ve heard of Dirty Harry! (Brandon would be quite ashamed of me if I hadn’t!)

    I do like hats. 🙂
