What I've Been Watching

What I’ve been watching: Last five films #3

Film

It’s been so long since I last wrote one of these that there are more than five last films. There are fourteen. October was a great film-watching month for me. Thanks to a longish-haul trip to London. Well, rather the flight back home to Bahrain. And the lull between TV seasons.

Rather than going through every single one of the films, I’m going to pick out five of my favourites of the last couple of months of film viewing.

Soundtrack Pick: Z for Zachariah

Music

Film scores are my jam. They help me concentrate when I’m working. Relax me when I’m just idly browsing the Internet. But of late I’ve not been able to find one that’s inspired me. In the past if I’ve enjoyed a film, it was fairly conclusive that I’d enjoy the film score. Something’s changed. This isn’t happening so much anymore.

I began to worry. Is it because I’m growing older? What do I do? Do I just let this happen? So I persevered. With every new film that I saw and enjoyed, I checked out the film score. Nothing. Until Z for Zachariah.
