Cinema is a specificity of vision. It’s an approach in which everything matters. It’s the polar opposite of generic or arbitrary and the result is as unique as a signature or a fingerprint. It isn’t made by a committee, and it isn’t made by a company, and it isn’t made by the audience. It means that if this filmmaker didn’t do it, it either wouldn’t exist at all, or it wouldn’t exist in anything like this form.

There are exceptions, but for me, music makes cinema. Here’s a video exploring how several legendary directors use music in their films. This is a short episode of Auteur Theories, that doesn’t go too far into depth with any of them, but offers a brief survey. The lack of Tarantino may be disturbing to some, but I couldn’t find a place for him in this video. I might make a short of the same length exploring Tarantino’s amazing musical predilections alone. That said, my favorite musical moment in cinema is not featured in this video. It is the opening minutes of Terrance Malick’s The New World. —Auteur Theories: Of Song and Cinema

- “Wheel of Fortune” by Kay Starr LA Confidential (ALL of the music, really)
- “500 Miles” in Benny & Joon
- “White Rabbit” Jefferson Airplane from Sopranos S01xE07 (Watch)
- “Angel” by Massive Attack from Burn Notice S07E07

Roger Ebert on cinema.

The late Roger Ebert makes a case for cinema and its distinction between real life. If you listen to a lot of commentaries like me, you’ll surely at some point will come across bits and pieces like this particular one. All of the greatest filmmakers and cinema critics know this and will back what Ebert is saying here. This is one of those truly important concepts a filmmaker must sooner or later realize if he or she wants to make films which engage an audience. This is another reason to love Ebert as one of the most important film critics to have lived. —filmschoolthrucommentaries
