God Moving Over The Face Of The Water, by Moby


When I was younger, in 1999, everyone was listening to Moby's Play. But before that, a couple of years earlier he released an album named I Like To Score, where he put together songs he composed for movies. In this album, this track was included. This track was featured in Heat (Michael Mann, 1995). I have a friend who considers this flick the best film ever made. It is good, indeed. It shows that Mann is a crafty filmmaker, but most of all it is also the proof that Mann is a great soundtracker, that is, he can ensamble amazing soundtracks. "God Moving Over The Face Of The Water" appears in the final sequence, and throughout the final credits, after 3 hours of fine violence, clever dialogues, brilliant performances and a perfectly edited final sequence. You see the fates of the characters coming. But you never see the brutal way Moby musicalizes Al Pacino looking at Robert DeNiro, planes flying at the break of dawn. Sorry for saying this so abruptly, but this is, basically, my favorite end credits sequence.

Chale, hijo, me cagas. Es un rolón.

La subiría, pero el castpost nomás no me deja últimamente. ¿Alguien podrá postearla?

Evelio said...

...listo...

curioso: ayer antes de dormir, puse ese dvd: sobra decir que me dormí tarde. Pero con una certeza: ese film es una puta obra maestra...

...y de Moby siempre me quedaré con el Animal Rights...

Gracias, Elvetius. No sé por qué a mí ya "no me quiere" Castpost.

Abrazos.

Ni a mi me quiere.

Qué bueno que la sacaste a flote. Ayer decíamos "es que esa rola hace dramático cualquier instante que toca": subir una escalera, mirar el rostro de tu novia, ir al baño o simplemente ver los autos pasar.

Y ya no le sigo porque sabes cómo me pongo.

Atte. McCauley, the friend who considers and KNOWS that Heat is the best film ever made. Insisto: dame tres argumentos, sin referencias a otros filmes, que demuestren lo contrario. Ok, lo de la pantalla verde lo aceptaré como el primero.
