Review: Man Of The Century
3.5 / 5 Stars
The score itself is intertwined between several previously recorded period tracks, some off of acoustically ancient recordings and some from the original artists performed for the film. Michael Weiner composed the original score, which fits beautifully with the above-mentioned recordings, keeping with the style and spirit of the film. It's a fun score, if you understand where it's coming from and what it's trying to do, otherwise, it's just viewed as an old album (which in essence, is the goal). The vocal arrangements add to the insanity, setting a "past" counterpoint to the "present" story's reality, including Ian Whitcomb's final track, "The Twenties Are Here To Stay". Most Hollywood treatments of a film of this theme would be more condescending, both in presentation of the story but also in applying musical accompaniment. This comedy was perfectly helmed by director Adam Abraham and co-writer and co-producer Gibson Frazier, a hard task for relative newcomers. The selection of Michael Weiner was a cherry on the sundae, and I hope to see more from this crazy clan of filmmakers.
