...Everything you've heard is true
The incredible story of genius musician Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, told in flashback by his peer and secret rival Antonio Salieri – now confined to an insane asylum.
I don't understand why this movie isn't higher rated. What criticism could possibly be raised about this flawless masterpiece?
Too many notes?
This film. This film right here. A masterpiece in every sense of the word. F. Murray Abraham as Antonio Salieri and the relatively unknown Tom Hulce as the titular Amadeus who needs no further introduction put down two of the best performances in movie history, and although they do not even share as much screen time together as you would expect from a story about (one-sided) rivalry, their chemistry is just beyond belief. Salieri’s villainous quest to destroy that what he believes is God himself taunting him is made completely and utterly empathetic through his simultaneous admiration for the gift of music created by that very malefactor. And then Mozart, who believes his opponent to be nothing short of a…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Firstly, you will never find a movie with more beautiful, breathtaking music. Simply stunning. Even for non classical fans, it is captivating.
Despite its title, it is the story of Salieri, the composer who reveres and yet hates Mozart for his genius. He lives his life in the shadow of Mozarts superior talent, and is driven mad by it. He can't fathom why God blessed Mozart with superior talent, a man who is in no way as pious as himself, and it becomes his obsession. Even years after Mozarts death he is still enraptured with all that occurred, and consigns himself to his fate of being the self proclaimed "patron saint of mediocrity."
Three hours long, and worth every minute of it. Whether or not you love classical music, you can appreciate the (fictionalized) story of this real life genius. One of the best composers of all time, and a great movie about him.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, arguably the single greatest mind in music history, never really had a rise to greatness so much as an immersion in it from the start. A born prodigy, at age 4 he already started composing music and delighted dozens with his immense talent. Achieving notoriety among the elite in the musical industry proved to be an uphill battle for him, yet history has been far more gracious to him than to the other supposed masters of the art. Mozart kept an uncanny ability at achieving perfection while the more publicly renowned, whether out of political or personal motivation, seemed to harbor an intense yet silent hatred for him.
At least, that's what Peter Shaffer's play Amadeus has…
“This was no composition by a performing monkey! This was a music I'd never heard. Filled with such longing, such unfulfillable longing, it had me trembling. It seemed to me that I was hearing the voice of God.”
As I sat there breathless staring at my screen watching this astounding masterpiece while listening to its amazing soundtrack, I couldn’t help but relate to F. Murray Abraham’s Salieri in his admiration for Mozart and his genius, although my admiration was geared towards Milos Forman’s outstanding direction and not on the actual composer himself. What a unique experience this three hour film was for me. Amadeus was a movie I had been putting off mainly because of its extremely long running time…
Milos Forman’s epic depiction of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s life has the kind of glory, sublimity, freshness and magnitude that you can only find in a top class artistic creation and watching it feels like experiencing the climax of a symphony written by the 18th century composer. It is flawless in almost every aspect and it is more like a sad opera which moves in all directions and never ceases to surprise and make joy and at the same time it tells the drear story of a man whose musical talent and mastery surprise everyone but his skill is not enough to make his own life more comfortable. Mozart’s life is a mixture of dejection, woe and rare moments of happiness…
The passion, the genius, the music, the music! This movie is a masterpiece. Mozart's music is so enthralling, so beautifully intertwined with the plot, so amazingly central and essential and vivid. And that final Requiem, I will never forget.
What this film may lack in strong formalism it makes up for in the sheer energy of its lead actors, who make what could have been a stuffy three hours to instead be lively and eminently watchable.
"Mediocre people of the world, i absolve you"
Oh the classical music...
A masterpiece in the history of the cinema.
Based on the play by Peter Shaffer who also wrote the screenplay. The life of Mozart, told in flashback by Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham), a rival composer. Salieri, now an old man, has tried to kill himself. He feels guilty over what he considers to be his murder of Mozart (Tom Hulce). Salieri tells his story to a priest while in an asylum. He tells of how he was one of the most celebrated composers in Europe...until Mozart came along and eclipsed him. All Salieri wanted was to be a great composer and celebrate God with his music, and yet Salieri feels slighted by God - he sees himself as a mediocrity and that God has bestowed the real…
Salieri is the ultimate snake of all the snakes wow
my life... summarised in three hours
(160 minute theatrical cut)
Every now and again, a movie comes along so brilliant, so captivating, that it makes you realize just what film is capable of.
THIS is film. THIS is how film should always be.
2 hours and 40 minutes wasn't nearly long enough.
Amadeus is a fascinating character study into two great but very different characters. While much of it is fictionalized, it is an in depth study into a vice-ridden musical genius and a man who is struggling to reconcile his faith and his desperate attempt to become "immortal" through his mediocre music. The costumes and acting are generally top notch and it is all around a great film.
