It’s a special for the music lovers, an EP sized issue devoted to some pretty deadly tunes, the music that ups the score of movies in your head, the perfectly timed soundtrack slappers that blew you away.
The needle drop is one of the most deadly, but delicate weapons in a filmmakers’ arsenal. Done well, the right song queued up at just the right moment elevates the emotion of a scene perfectly, pulling us through the scene and right into the agony or ecstasy of the characters.
