What a great choice. A short score (perfectly timed) that never wears out its welcome. I have a great reissue of the score paired with Tora! Tora! Tora! (another very good one).Patton.
Half of our senior project in Film Scoring at Berklee in those days was to analyze a score. That's the one I chose. In addition to being brilliant musically, it's *so* clever intellectually - three themes played together to represent the different aspects of his personality (believed in reincarnation/destiny, religious man, military man).
I also transcribed a lot of it and learned an amazing amount from doing that.
The score is so deep and layered, and of course so is the film. It's an anti-war film.
