Films as a source of inspiration. Name your favourites
« on: October 21, 2016, 04:56:18 am »
Hey guys. Whenever I'm feeling low on inspiration I always go to films that either have something to do with music or the soundtrack is amazing. Wondering if any of you guys do the same!? List some that inspire you.

Pretty much anything by Bernard Herrmann - Citizen Kane, Vertigo, Psycho, Taxi Driver... there're just so many examples.

I'm a big fan of the Interstellar. It really had a deep but also atmospheric mood :).

Junkie XL has had some crazy soundtracks happening lately. Such aggressive mixes.

Anything by Studio Ghibli because Joe Hisaishi is the composer.
