I always loved the last scene of the movie LOVESICK-83 with DUDLEY MOORE, it is a shot of south central park in New York, near the lake where paddle boating is. It appears to be either at dawn or dusk on a summer's day and the way the film ends with MR SARDE'S beautiful theme just touches me to know end. Is it because of a first hand experience and vibes of the location? Yes that helps. Many couples sit on those park benches in a middle of solitary vibes surrounded by a giant city of noise, very poetic. Love it

THE BEAR-89- I would have included this in my favorites of PHILLIPE until I found out the main theme was not composed by MR SARDE.

If only for that piece of music that was used in the film's trailer, I wouldn't mind a release of THE STEPFATHER.
