Rock Me Amadeus
I love Amadeus. Tom Hulce and F. Murray Abraham are just amazing to watch, and the movie convinced me that opera might be something worth checking out. The recreation of the scene from Don Giovanni and the Lacrymosa give me the willies.

This is one where I better succeed at ignoring the inaccuracies.

While not the same level of classic, "Immortal Beloved" is sort of an "Amadeus" for Beethoven...and takes fewer liberties with history. Also - Gary Oldman.

Re: Rock Me Amadeus
+1 for Gary Oldman, always.

And yes, the play was liberal with history, but it was just so epic we forgive it. :)
