Forrest Gump (1994) is one of the most successful films ever made, winning Tom Hanks his second successive Best Actor Oscar (he won the previous year for Philadelphia) as well as claiming the Best Picture Oscar and many other awards and nominations, including several for music. A unique fable of American life from the 1950s to the 80s, the film blends comedy, drama, war, romance and groundbreaking special effects into a social and political portrait of the passing years, all seen through the eyes of the intellectually challenged but immensely likeable Forrest Gump. The soundtrack is a double album featuring 31 classic pop tunes plus a suite from Alan Silvestri's rich orchestral music, represented more completely on the companion score album. Opening with Elvis Presley's "Hound Dog", this is a fine anthology of three decades of American music, taking in everything from Joan Baez's "Blowin' In The Wind" to Aretha Franklin's "Respect", The Mammas and The Papas' "California Dreamin'" and Simon & Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson". Here also is Scott McKenzie with "San Francisco", plus Jefferson Airplane, the Supremes, Lynyrd Skynrd and many more. Like American Graffiti (1973), this is one of the great pop soundtracks, happily at home in just about any music collection.

Une fillette et son tueur devant une vitrine, une silhouette noire descendant un escalier, la jupe arrachée d'une kolkhozienne, une femme qui court au-devant des balles: ces images signées Lang ou Murnau, Eisenstein ou Rossellini, iconisent le cinéma et cachent ses paradoxes. Un art est toujours aussi une idée et un rêve de l'art. L'identité de la volonté artiste et du regard impassible des choses, la philosophie déjà l'avait conçue, le roman et le théâtre l'avaient tentée à leur manière. …
