Why See Boston Pops - Jaws?
Duh-Duh, Duh-Duh, DuhDuhDuhDuh
Steven Spielberg's timeless monster movie is the latest flick to get the Boston Pops Orchestra treatment, who will play John Williams's score live to a screening of the film. Featuring one of the most recognisable themes in cinematic history, Williams' music is crucial to ratcheting up Jaws' tension, and was ranked as the sixth greatest score of all time by the AFI. Keith Lockhart is the conductor.
Released in 1975, Jaws set the template for the summer blockbuster, and made a household name of director. A nail-biting thriller, that famously keeps its antagonist out of sight for most of its runtime, Jaws centers on Roy Schneider's Martin Brody, a police chief whose hometown's waters become the hunting ground for a ravenous great white shark. Enlisting the help of marine biologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled shark hunter Quint (Robert Shaw), Brody sets out to kill the sharp-toothed menace.
