Howard Shore is a three-time Oscar- and Golden Globe–winning composer whose credits include The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Saturday Night Live, most films by David Cronenberg and several by Martin Scorsese (The Aviator, Gangs of New York), plus Seven, Ed WoodThat Thing You Do! and The Silence of the Lambs. On this episode of The Canadian Jewish Shmooze, Michael speaks with the legendary Canadian Jewish composer about his modest Jewish upbringing in and around Toronto, while Alex breaks down his own recent trip to Israel, where he met with residents across the political divide as part of a trip called Kaleidoscope. Plus: do Jews need to worry about fake cable guys?
