Because I like the music, and because I remembered liking the acting, and because I was in the mood for lurid melodrama, I rented “Amadeus” the other night after not having seen it since it came out 20 or so years ago. And it was how I remembered it, and even better, this time I really got off on something I hadn’t noticed first time: F. Murray Abraham as Salieri having Teresa-like spiritual orgasms as he reads Mozart’s scores.

The movie’s author is a sour, dour person, but that Mozart sure wrote some spiffy soundtrack music.
