My film review for Amadeus

Movie Genre: Drama

Grade: A+, by Matthew Felsted

The story of the historic prodigy and musical genius, Wolfgang Amadeus Motzart, is narated by a murderous madman and rival to the great composer. His name is Salieri and he pushes Motzart to his weary death by depriving him of sleep for many days. Whether or not this is historically accurate is unknown. The cause of Motzart's death in reality is a mystery and the location of his body unknown. He was burried in a lowly and degrading burial pit along with hundreds of other low class commoners - a class to which he did not belong.

To get an idea of the caliber of this man's genius, listen to this beautifully mournful masterpiece by Wolfgang Amadeus Motzart, The Requiem:
