Minghella Memory



If you can ignore the alan rickman stalker in the making/fanvid and listen to Bach's - Cello Suite No. 5 in C Minor Im sure something will stir in the well of the soul, Minghellas movie 'Truly Madly Deeply' was my first real introduction to JS Bach allegros and sonatas and I have him to thank for. It is also a personal favorite of mine in the long list of movies that I love. To be honest its pisses all over 'Ghost' but then again most movies do. Mr Minghella - Thank You.

Good thing Alan Rickman is a great character actor, otherwise he could have ruined it. Love the music. Enjoyed Alan Rickman aka the voice of God. (a fave movie of mine, Dogma)

Hes got that 'bowie charisma with age' thing going on but hes got bags on panache and who could resist his purr like tones?

did you know that jason mewes learned the WHOLE script when he discovered Alan Rickman was playing the metranon because he didnt want to embarrass himself - its one of my favorites

Alan Rickman Rules! Such a great actor.

In regards to music, I was introduced to Bach in College. At one point I played all 48 Preludes and Fugues fluently. I have been out of practice since. But you have inspired me to get practicing again....Many thanks,
