EdieEmm's rating of the film Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda

If Sakamoto weren't so affable, welcoming the camera each scene, making it feel at home, the film would feel something like a quiet, appreciative shimmer around him, like every molecule in the frame was doing its best to reflect Sakamoto's energy/personality; a subtle synergistic effort to let us *feel* him/his mind via our mirror neurons. Add his generosity, & it becomes a gift. Cohesive & affecting. A+ sound design
