This past week was a busy one. Â I was in two concerts, for one thing. Â However, I did find the time to watch Amadeus for the second time. Â I forgot how depressing that movie is.
I love the movie for its brilliant use of Mozart’s music, but once it makes that dark turn I find it hard to watch. Â It is true that Mozart was a genius who may not have been appreciated as much as he deserved until after his death. Â It is true that he died a pauper, but that may have been more to do with his spending more than he earned than anything else. Â I’m not sure how accurate the rest of the movie is, but it’s worth watching. Â Once, anyway.
