Great soundtrack -- thanks!!!

However Empire of the Sun was not critically acclaimed. In fact the film received very mixed reviews. It was the year of John Boorman's Hope and Glory (another film about a boy caught up in WW2) and The Last Emperor (which won best picture). Both films towered over Empire of the Sun critically. I preferred Empire of the Sun over both Hope and Emperor; making the reviews for Empire troubling for me.
