Some help for a paper...

For my freshman college writing course, we have to choose a topic that incorporaates music, literature, and somewhat involves the themes we have discussed throughout the semester. I am hoping to use the topic of film and music, and somehow tie that to the literature. A theme we discuss often is that of Nietzsche's apollonian/dionysian argument. This links up with the power of music, and how it is more of a primal, higher force than language. We've read Doctor Faustus, and will be reading Great Gatsby. Im a little stuck on how I can involve film in this. I was thinking something like studying silent film and the way it used music. Wong Kar-Wai's In the Mood for Love also got me thinking. Any suggestions, help, or ideas would be great. Oh, and I'm hoping to pick up some dvds for "research" purposes if I go through with this.

Dude, just do you paper on how Howard Shore's score adds a whole new dimension to The Lord of the Rings movies...you've got everything you need for a paper in those three films...

I need textual support, and at least 5 sources though...it's a 12 page paper. Any literature you could point me to to support my paper?

Maybe you can choose one composer and not limit yourself to one movie.
