The Wages of Sin
From what the title suggests and being a film directed by William Friedkin (The Exorcist), one might expect this is a supernatural or horror film, but it's not. It's really a remake of the French film, The Wages of Fear, an action, adventure film. That said, however, it still a very interesting film, that's tense in every sense of the word. It stars Roy Scheider among other unknown stars (at least to me). The set up plunges you in the center of a hellish South America that's is impoverish, dirty, wet, and where each man cannot return to their own country. The setup requires you to stay alert as a bit of each man is explored. They come together by happenstance when drivers are needed by an oil company to transport explosives across the rugged South American landscape. What happens in route is the later half of the film and terribly engrossing and you really feel the struggle of each man as it test their endurance. The music by Tangerine Dream is a nice fit which at times creates a spooky primitive atmosphere and at other times ethereal and almost psychedelic. For whatever reason, the movie wasn't well received and was dismissed as an unnecessary remake of the original film. But I've seen the original, and I much prefer this version for the performances of Roy Scheider, the Tangerine Dream score, and the Friedkin direction. I think given the history of time, the film has weathered better with critics and now it's seen on its own merit, a masterpiece.
Getting back to the YT Vinyl Community, below is a guy (vinyl~spin) that is one of the better VC presenters. His delivery is clear and measured, and I can tell he's been collecting a long time. He also has good taste or a taste similar to my own. Plus he has many things I'm not aware of. In the video below he starts out by telling when and how he began collecting music. The segment is about synthesizer music, new age, space music, and krautrock, which all share a similarity. He highlights some classic records.
