Nu, just out of curiosity, may I please ask what you enjoy about PROPHECY? Thanks!

[Edited out reference to Hank Azaria per Scott below.] I won't be surprised if the Academy nominates Sasha Baron Cohen for supporting actor, but the performance I loved most was scenery-chewing Frank Langella as Judge Hoffman (no relation, as he points out from the bench). Mark Rylance is also great, as usual.

And, yes, I agree that Pemberton's cue in the final scene, while lovely, comes in too quickly and too hot, as if Aaron Sorkin is admonishing us to "cry now, this precise moment, you people, or by god I will turn this film around." Clumsy and overly-manipulative. But otherwise I really liked the movie.

Kohn was referring to the 2010 documentary (with animation) Chicago 10, where Azaria provided the voice of Hoffman. It's possible this was clearer in the full version of the review but confusing in the paragraph I excerpted to spotlight the mentions of Pemberton's score.

Yes. But, about PROPHECY...?

Ah. Thanks. I edited my comment.

Preston, I'm honestly not ignoring your question about Prophecy -- I'm still just trying to figure out how to answer it.

Take your time, thanks. I'm in no hurry.

Just to note that the "upcoming" release of Christopher Gunning's Symphonies 6 & 7 appears to be a re-release and was originally released on the Discovery label released in 2014. I seem to remember enjoying them immensely and reminded me that I should reacquaint myself with his concert music.
