Student: Is it true that you’re queer?

Jim ponders the question, then —

Jim: Yes, it’s true.

Nighthawks (1978), written by Ron Peck and Paul Hallam

The Daily Dialogue theme for the week: Coming Out, suggested by Angry Cyborg.

Trivia: Widely considered the first “commercial” or “commercially released” gay feature film ever made in the U.K., where the story was directly about gay relationships and themes, but which was not about crime (blackmail or murder), or purely stereotypical.

Dialogue On Dialogue: A pivotal moment in the movie in which Jim, who has kept his sexuality secret, admits his lifestyle. It happens late in this 70s era story and precipitates a spontaneous question-and-answer session with the students.

VOTD: Hans Zimmer Unleashes ‘The Dark Knight’ Live at Coachella 2017

Hans Zimmer - The Dark Knight Live at Coachella 2017

Though I’m personally more fond of the Batman theme that was composed by Danny Elfman for Tim Burton’s adaptation of DC Comics’ Caped Crusader, there’s no denying Hans Zimmer wrote some incredible music for The Dark Knight trilogy. In fact, the music that Hans Zimmer has composed for all of his collaborations with Christopher Nolan have been rather influential on other film score composers, prompting plenty of imitation.

Fans attending Coachella this year were treated to a special performance by composer Hans Zimmer, complete with a full orchestra and some other choice instruments in an assembly of several medleys from his various soundtracks. We’ve already highlighted his showcase of Inception, and now you can watch and listen to The Dark Knight performance too.

Watch as Hans Zimmer performs The Dark Knight live at Coachella 2017 below.

Unlike most live performances of film scores, this isn’t just an arrangement that plays tracks just as they appeared on the soundtrack. Instead, this is almost like a remix of themes from The Dark Knight with some added instrumentals that feel right at home in a rock concert. At times the added electric guitar and bass almost make The Dark Knight sounds like the score for Mad Max: Fury Road, a score that also deserves to have a live performance at a festival like Coachella.

If you’re interested in the Hans Zimmer experience (and it looks like quite the trippy one), he has nearly two dozen tour dates in the United States at the end of the summer. Check out the list below to see if he’s coming near you and get tickets right away, because I’m sure they’re going fast:

Daily Dialogue — April 23, 2017

GREGORY: You remember our first days. You remember Italy?
PAULA: There have been times when I thought I only dreamed those days.
GREGORY: Come closer, Paula. Closer. Look into my eyes. If I ever meant anything to you, and I believe I did… then help me, Paula. Give me another chance. Look, in the drawer of that cupboard there is a knife. Get it and cut me free. Be quick, Paula. Get me the knife. Cut me free. Would you get it, Paula? Would you get it for me?
PAULA: Yes, I’ll get it. I’ll get it for you.
GREGORY: Hurry, Paula.
PAULA: There’s no knife here.
GREGORY: Yes. I put it there.
PAULA: I don’t see any knife.
GREGORY: I put it there tonight.
PAULA: No, it isn’t here. You must have dreamed you put it there. Are you suggesting that this is a knife I hold in my hand? Have you gone mad, my husband? Or is it I who am mad? Yes, of course. That’s it. I am mad.

Gaslight (1944), written by John Van Deuten & Walter Reisch and John L. Balderston, based on the play by Patrick Hamilton

The Daily Dialogue theme for this week: Lying. Today’s suggestion by Gisela Wehrl.

Trivia: In MGM’s script, Charles Boyer was supposed to have told Ingrid Bergman at the end that he had loved her all along. This was an addition to the play made by the screenwriter. David O Selznick, when reading over the script, was horrified and promptly sent MGM one of his famous long and involved memos, this one ordering the studio to omit the line, which it did.

Dialogue On Dialogue: Commentary by Gisela: “Gregory lies to Paula all the time to drive her crazy. This form of manipulation ‘that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or members of a group, hoping to make targets question their own memory, perception, and sanity’ (Wikipedia) is called gaslighting — based on the movie’s title. When Gregory finally got caught, he still hopes to have power over Paula. And she tells him, she will help him. But she copies his lies. He insists two times, that he put the knife there as he cannot imagine, that Paula would lie to him. Just as Paula couldn’t imagine before, that her husband would lie to her. Seeing her with a knife in her hand and lying about holding it, makes obvious how malicious this manipulations operates.”

Daily Dialogue — April 22, 2017

OZ: You know what I think we need? A little music.
THEODORA: Is that magic?
OZ: In a way. It’s a music box. You’ve never seen one? This belonged to my grandmother. A czarina from Irkutsk.

Oz the Great and Powerful (2013), written by Mitchell Kapier and David Lindsay-Abaire, screen story by Mitchell Kapner, based on the“Oz“ Works by L. Frank Baum

The Daily Dialogue theme for this week: Lying. Today’s suggestion by Gisela Wehrl.

Trivia: Michelle Williams’ character Annie is marrying a man named John Gale. Director Sam Raimi has confirmed that Annie and John are intended to be the (previously unnamed) parents of Dorothy Gale, the main character in “The Wizard of Oz” (1939) and “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” (book), and a primary or secondary character in most of the other books.

Dialogue On Dialogue: Commentary by Gisela: “It’s Oz’ usual lie to present pretty girls innumerable music box — from his fictitious grandmother. We have seen him before doing it. A lie which is easily to unmask, as there is no czarina from Irkutsk. But not for a witch living in the far, far world of Oz. And with this lie, Oz starts to conquer Theodora’s heart. And when it breaks the Wicked Witch of the West is born.”
