Wow. That was a beautiful testament to both Selicks and Coulais. Well done!

Now I must see this film after such an extraordinary critique.

This is a fantastic critique! I have been listening to Coulais' score continuously over the past few weeks and have viewed the film in both 2D and 3D numerous times. I really agree that the music does not elicit a prescribed emotional response to the characters or the story. Everytime I watch or listen to this movie, I find more things to think about and feel differently for the characters. I think the concept of dreaming and imagination is captured very realistically - the things that happen in the other realm seem absurd in the real world. But aren't dreams always like that? I am an intense dreamer so I had a special appreciation for the ridiculous other world and how much Coraline must have enjoyed it. I could definitely get caught up in a dreamworld like that too!
