  1. 1. Which film do you prefer?

    • Psycho (directed by Alfred Hitchcock)
    • The Shining (directed by Stanley Kubrick)
  2. 2. Which score do you prefer?

    • Psycho (composed by Bernard Herrmann)
    • The Shining (composed by Wendy Carlos, Rachel Elkind, others)

Herrmann’s Psycho is a fine score, but other than the shower scene stuff, none of it particularly stands out to me, whereas The Shining is full of evocative highlights (main titles, Rocky Mountains, the classical pieces, etc).

The main titles are great, but a lot of the other string writing doesn’t really catch my interest.
