An intimate family portrait of the film director John Boorman by one who should know him best - his daughter Katrine. Now over 80 years old, the director of Hell in the Pacific, Excalibur, Deliverance and The Emerald Forest is one of the last great mavericks. His daughter, who previously had never held a camera, spent four years filming her father who, during the process, found it impossible to resist taking control and offering her a crash course in filmmaking.

John Adams: Road Movies (2004)
Classical | EAC (APE & CUE) | 209 MB

Nominated for the 2005 Grammy Award for "Best Chamber Music Performance", Road Movies offers a portrait of John Adams at different stages of his career. His best-known compositions are musical statements made on a grand scale. The pieces selected for this disc, however, were written for one or two instruments, but by no means are they "small" works―there's plenty of the Adams style and substance. "China Gates" and "Phrygian Gates", both for solo piano, date back to the very beginning of his professional life in 1977. They bear the mark of youthful exuberance and are excellent examples of his compositional language in the early stages of development. The later works have the type of harmonic and melodic movement that Adams is known for, which Adams describes as traveling music, and indeed they are the sonic equivalent of watching landscapes through a car's windshield. Leila Josefowicz handles the violin part of the title track with characteristic aplomb, providing particularly expressive playing in the "Meditative" section. "American Berserk", another latter-day composition on the album, is a frenetic romp that edges perilously close to spinning out of control at several points but pulls itself together in the nick of time.

At 18 tracks, this is a lot of Aldo Nova, especially since Nova is pretty much the province of early-'80s hard rock fetishists. Still, there's a reason why Nova has fans, and it's because his music was trippier and stranger than that of his peers, whether it was Billy Squier or Accept. As such, it has dated a little bit, but in a good way, since this has more character than a lot of early-'80s arena metal. That doesn't mean that this will satisfy listeners just looking for "Fantasy," but for those who like to dig a little deeper into this era, this is definitely worth a spin.

Leave it to Christoph Eschenbach and the Houston Symphony to deliver one of the more impressive classical discs of 1999: a pairing of the violin concertos of John Adams and Philip Glass. Hearing the works of these two American music mavericks side-by-side is a study in contrasts: Adams's postmodernist composition from 1993 is filled with spooky overtones, as the violin threads its way through the piece, always at the forefront.
