Moby's "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters" during the final scene of Heat

Posted by: LonePirate on May 31, 16:22 in response to lobogotti's post Movie Poll: Use of a song that made a movie scene flat...

Granted, that scene was already stellar but the song and it's wistful, dirge like quality cemented the scene as simply spectacular (in a film with several other remarkable scenes).

Movie Poll: Use of a song that made a movie scene flat out perfect in your eyes. lobogotti May 31, 13:23

Mad World (Donnie Darko) and The Unanswered Question (Lola rennt) {nm} second gary May 31, 15:40

both top notch! {nm} lobogotti May 31, 15:42

Ella Fitzgerald's cover of "Get Thee Behind Me Satan" and Jo Stafford's cover of "No Other Love" are also on my longlist. {nm} second gary May 31, 15:52

Both in "The Master," of course. {nm} second gary May 31, 15:53

hit or miss films, but Cruel Intentions - Bitter Sweet Symphony and Deadpool - Juice Newton completely sets the tone for that film. {nm} lobogotti May 31, 15:52

Magnolia, opening scene! One is the Lonliest Number {nm} lobogotti May 31, 15:52

I'd go with "Save Me," but all her songs are so important to "Magnolia." {nm} second gary May 31, 15:54
