This past week was a busy one.  I was in two concerts, for one thing.  However, I did find the time to watch Amadeus for the second time.  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.  It is true that Mozart was a genius who may not have been appreciated as much as he deserved until after his death.  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.  I’m not sure how accurate the rest of the movie is, but it’s worth watching.  Once, anyway.
