Os nossos filmes favoritos

Hoje, 5 de Novembro e Dia Mundial do Cinema não podíamos deixar de fazer algo especial para comemorar uma forma de arte que tanto adoramos. Como tal, a equipa da vossa Comunidade Cultura e Arte decidiu reunir uma lista dos filmes preferidos de cada colaborador. Num assunto que tanto nos desperta paixões, à abrangência de gostos diferenciados, outros em comum, aliou-se também a nossa incapacidade em reduzir a mesma em apenas um ou dois por cada pessoa.

Music: Carmen Overture - Georges Bizet

As we all know now, in this scene:

the music used is overture to La Gazza Ladra (The Thieving Magpie) by Gioachino Piccini. 
But they didn’t just take simply one part of it  because it sounds good. It’s here for a reason (and not just the title of the opera)

Exactly the same part was used by Stanley Kubrick his film - A Clockwork Orange and Sergio Leone in Once Upon A Time In America. (a direct quote from Kubrick movie)
Kubrick was known for being VERY picky about music used in his films. So it’s not a coincidence that he choosed a few tacts from the middle of the overture. 

The music used in this Sherlock scene is a direct quote from Kubrick. These are the same tacts (169-219 and 195-412) as used here and here.
As you can see in Leone and Kubrick’s films this music connotes what is the expression of criminality. It shows a crime commited always by four people. 

So by using The Theving Magpie in Sherlock, creators tell us in the beginning of episode, that there is no code. Moriarty has three other people helping him. It’s all a scam.

One clever foreshadowing :)
