Personal portrait of accomplished film composer
7 June 2000 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

This is an interview with Basil Poledouris (composer to films such as Conan the Barbarian, For Love of the Game, Les Miserables, Farewell to the King) and his family. It is shot in his home and it is very casual. Fans get to see what kind of a person he is, they get to see his house, his studio, and get to meet his wife and daughter.

One thing it lacks which I would have liked to see, is to see him actually conducting a recording session. It would be better to see more scenes of him at work with his music.

Since we don't get that many videos on film composers, any of them out there is a gem. If you are a fan of film music and of Basil Poledouris, this is a sure treat.
