Two blockbuster monster movies by Stephen Spielberg, Jaws and Jurassic Park, are screening as part of LIFF30’s soundtracks season, both scored, of course, by John Williams. In Jaws, the seaside community of Amity finds itself under attack by a dangerous great white shark, the town’s chief of police (Roy Scheider), a young marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss) and a grizzled shark hunter (Robert Shaw) embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast before it strikes again. The classic main Jaws theme is described by Williams as ‘grinding away at you, just as a shark would do, instinctual, relentless, unstoppable.’
