Something for the weekend. The Death Theme from The Untouchables (1987). Two posts about Chicago violence this week and my thoughts have turned to this wonderful, albeit ahistorical, movie. The music by Ennio Morricone is wonderfully evocative of time and place. The sad and powerful music recalls for me the line from The Lord of The Rings: It is a sad thing to be a Man, but it is a proud thing too.
