box was kind enough to support MeFi with a donation. Their request was for six films about musicians, either biopics or doc. That was too easy, so I'm doing six of each. I'll be using the tag #MusicianStories

Donate $25 or more to MeFi and you can MeMail me a request for a themed day of your own. I'll fill up the sidebar on FF with six movies that fit your theme.

I found out about this film when I heard my wife watching it LOUD from downstairs. I ran to the top of the stairs and shouted in my best Brian Blessed voice, "Who is playing the sacred music?!?!?!"
