It’s been over a year since the release of “Sonic Hacks” and, by all accounts, the music itself has been nothing short of stellar.
While there are many criticisms of the movie, most of them have to do with its plot, which is actually rather bland.
And as much as some people would love to hear a more sophisticated, sophisticated story of a future of technological advances and the rise of the robotic, that’s not what the film has been about at all.
“Symphonic Highfields” is a film about the musical industry, one that doesn’t have the usual formula that’s been built into Hollywood movies before.
Rather than taking a movie from the 1950s and making it a nostalgic, nostalgic-future movie, the filmmakers chose to take the music of the past and turn it into a film of the present.
The story follows the rise and fall of the first major electronic act, the psychedelic band “S.O.S.”
(which is essentially the sound of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones together), whose members include John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.
The band was formed in 1966 by drummer John Lennon and singer Ringo and is a quintet of the best and brightest musicians in the history of rock and roll.
“It’s very much a story of the early 20th century, but it’s also about the early ’70s and the beginning of the modern era,” says co-director Andrew Kreisberg.
“We want to present this story as it really happened.”
The film opens with a shot of a crowd at a music festival in the early 1960s, when the band was still a tiny band.
In the background, a crowd of people are singing along to the band’s “Somber Monday” in a crowded theater.
There’s no dialogue.
Just the music.
As the film opens, the audience is singing along and there’s no caption or narration.
But the audience does get a glimpse of what’s happening inside the theater as the band sings along to their song.
The audience is the audience and the audience wants the band to perform.
The crowd wants to hear the band perform.
They want to hear what they’re hearing.
“The audience wants to see what’s going on and they want to see the band,” says Kreisber.
“They want to feel the band, they want the band.
And the band wants to feel what the audience’s feeling.
They’re in sync, they’re in harmony, they are playing a song.”
That’s exactly what the band is doing as the film progresses, and it’s clear that the audience doesn’t want to leave.
The film then goes on to explore the band as they play “The Beatles,” a song that they’ve written and recorded over the years and that the band continues to record.
The song itself, however, doesn’t quite fit in with the film’s narrative.
Instead, it’s a bit of a back-and-forth between the audience, the band and the film.
“There are a lot of parts in the film that are very melodic and very musical,” Kreisburger says.
“But the thing is, there’s a lot more in the movie that’s just not there in the music.”
And that’s a very nice way to put it: “We wanted to capture a lot that was happening in the world of the band in a way that it was not something that was captured in the song itself.”
As the audience continues to sing along to “The Girls,” the film then returns to the music that has been playing in the background since the band first emerged.
As Lennon’s and McCartney’s songs play, the crowd slowly but surely becomes more and more entranced.
The music is now becoming the soundtrack for their performances, with a band that has played for decades becoming something like a pop sensation.
As much as they’re trying to play the same songs over and over again, they also want to bring out the emotion that the crowd is feeling.
“When the crowd goes to the show, they get really into it, they like it,” Kreissberg says.
But it’s the performance itself that really brings the audience to their feet.
“And they really do go out of their way to make the music as emotional and beautiful as they can,” Kreischer says.
The director says that the movie is not about a movie, but about a story.
“This movie is about the world that the Beatles created and that was something that really inspired people and helped shape the world,” he says.
And that was what they were aiming for.
“As they say in ‘A View to a Kill,’ ‘It’s the music, the fans, and the fans that get the movie.'”
