Music is integral to cinema. Since the dawn of the silent film, music has been used to advance or tell a story. The soundtrack to a film, its score, is the pulse of the movie. Often times music becomes as important as the actors on screen when conveying a message. It’s the melancholy violin that finally moves a viewer to tears. Makes them feel.
