"Amadeus" (the Director's cut) won't be coming to my neighborhood theatre anytime soon, but I saw the 1984 film and the story of Mozart as seen though the eyes of his rival is as powerful, as the music he wrote during his short life span of 35 years.
If you going to show up just for the new material, you might as well stay home, "Amadeus" is a powerful piece of cinema inwhich the expression of classical music and opera is felt strongly. Today, kids who grew up on rap and hard rock and roll, will miss out on the joys of classical music, and I'm glad that movies like "Amadeus" reminds people that there are different kinds of music that are played, which included classical music.
During my college days, I listened to the NPR station on campus and another station in Grand Rapids. I could've listened to top 40 music or alternative music, but I picked classic music, because its real and powerful and I could listern to that music all day. "Amadeus" promotes this sort of music and also created two bios, one of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart played by Tom Hulice and his rival played by Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham. I like the way Hulice would laugh. He makes a funny laugh and I tend to laugh back.
The film wom best Oscar for Best Picture and Best Director to Milos Forman. The film is beautiful to look at and the music is powerful. I hope I can see that director's cut. It would featured more Mozart music, and that is allright with me.
