    The Hours


    <span style="color:blue;font-family:century gothic;font-size:medium;">Possibly, the best movie I have seen this year and for sometime to come. At first, I was a bit confused as to "who was who" (especially Nicole Kidman!) Nicole plays Virginia Wolf and is unrecognizable. Both Julianne M-o-o-r-e (the name that is forever banned here -) and Meryl Streep turn in stunning performances - as does Ed Harris. This is one you don't want to miss. Bring lots of kleenex - if you are the sentimental type - like me!

    The music score is by Philip Glass and is hauntingly beautiful.

    Lad,
    What do you think about the Philip Glass score (parts of it, of course) for skating? Glass has been used a lot in dance and has done scores for more "indie" movies, but I think this is his first real mainstream film score. I'm hoping that perhaps the film's popularity (I haven't seen it yet, just heard parts of the score in a preview) will prompt a skater to use Glass's music, but I'm curious to hear your opinion.

    I thought about this myself, but I would really have to listen to the soundtrack again. It's hard to say - the music is a piano score and very complex. It would take a really top skater to interpret it well - say Jeff Buttle for instance. I really want to hear the music again - maybe even see the movie again as well.
