Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.28.09] post apocalyptic movie news



In this four minute report over at BBC4, arts correspondent Rebecca Jones manages to talk to screen writer Joe Pehnall, play an interview clip with the author of The Road himself, Cormac McCarthy, and most importantly of all play a portion of music that Australian rocker Nick Cave wrote for the film.

This is the first time a single note of the score has been heard outside of a few early screening rooms so check it out. It's haunting, simple, perfect. Still no word on the actual release date of the film but Jones does confirm that the film is finished.

It's good but I would have made it strike an ever so slightly more appalatian note. I hope the whole score isn't that reserved. Theres even space for some stark electonic stuff like in 'there will be blood.' I think. I might be over analysings a ten second burst of music....

I really liked the stuff he did for "The Assasination of Jesse James...".

There's some great dissident piano stuff playing at the beginning of the report. I wonder if that's also from the score. Also, I imagine that the music will rise and fall and shift in tone to coincide with the drama of the story. What you're hearing is no doubt 5% of the whole thing.

I like what he did for Jesse James too and his Bad Seeds stuff is pretty great.
