Mediocrities everywhere.

I'm sure there are extreme Mozart fans out there who agree with just about every way he is displayed on screen, but I'll be honest: I don't care.
I didn't know him personally, neither did I hear anything extraordinary about his character, I was simply floored by Tom Hulce's performance and every comical, ingenious trait of the character.

F. Murray Abraham is one of the few actors who can keep an extremely low and an extremely high profile in their film at the same time. I adored his portrayal of the slowly declining morality and sanity of Antonio Salieri and the way it was written into the story.
They built in the main story as a flashback, often coming back to the now possibly insane Salieri. That gave way to so much more contrast between the old and the new. One of the greatest per...

"Amadeus" by Yojimbo

The life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as seen through the eyes of envious court composer Antonio Salieri is brought to sumptuous life by Milos Forman in this deservedly multi-Oscar winning adaptation of Peter Schaeffer's play. Tom Hulce is not the first name that springs to mind when thinking of the great composer, but his exuberant performance shows Mozart as a passionate and above all human man with an overflowing confidence in his work and abilities.

A fine supporting cast and lavish costumery bring the Vienna of the time to believable life and the use of some of the greatest pieces of music ever com...

Review - Amadeus (1984)

Said to be one of the greatest composers of all time, Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) always thought of himself as a shadow beneath the infamous Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Tom Hulce). His story of envy is told in the Best Picture winning film, “Amadeus.”

It is interesting to think that a film would be made to honor the life of a man who thought so lowly of himself, and would have today most likely figured this film would be about his rival. Telling the story from the perspective of the arguable antagonist in such a wondrous tale of the life of such a unique man was a brilliant and original idea. The fact that I had never heard of Antonio Salieri before this film is even more proof that his name has been drowned out by that of Mozart.

I could probably go on for hours on how I felt ...
