    Hi I was wondering do you know the name of the song in the new I am Heath Ledger trailer?. I’m sorry for asking this here but I didn’t see a page up for it yet.

    Lesley Barber’s pieces are all too short. They should be as long as Brahm’s symphonies. Can’t listen to ’em enough.

    found the music overtaking the film – it was actually annoying. would have preferred much less

    • Tom 26 / 02 / 2017 Reply

      That is insane. The music brings a great artistic presence to the film and all great films use silence and imagery to create powerful emotion. In this movie, I kept thinking how amazing the images were and actually amplified by the music.
