How a young composer fell in love with the score of Sneakers, and what makes the film?s music so great.
quote [ Composed by James Horner, the music in Sneakers is hauntingly beautiful and written in a sophisticated and understated manner. But part of what makes the score special is that it doesn?t necessarily sound like what you?d expect for a film in the ?computer-hacking / spy-game? genre. ]
I watched Sneakers again for the first time in years, and I was struck by the quality of the score. I am not alone.
