SAVING MR. BANKS soundtrack | ©2013 Walt Disney Soundtrack

Tuxedoed penguins, dancing chimney sweeps, a housekeeper floating in on an umbrella to tame a household of errant children – all accompanied by some of the most memorable songs to grace a Disney movie, let alone any family film in Hollywood via England history. These confections make for the enduring magic that is MARY POPPINS, a movie that’s melodiously synonymous with family warmth. However, the real story behind this heartwarming classic was anything but harmonious, especially when POPPINS decidedly Scrooge-like creator arrived in LA’s magic kingdom like a serving of castor oil – haunted by a childhood that was anything […]Read On »

From ABOUT SCHMIDT‘s gruff retiree venturing about the Midwest in his Winnebago to the two malcontents who take their beat up car for soul-searching and wine-tasting in SIDEWAYS‘ Santa Ynez Valley, filmmaker Alexander Payne has proven that he’s got an eccentric taste for movies involving road trips with bastards – especially when it comes to the eccentric scores playing on his car radio called a soundtrack. But of all the hopefully redemptive voyages for these lovable losers that Payne has staged to critical acclaim, perhaps none has the desolate whimsy we hear on our way to NEBRASKA. The state might […]Read On »

Ilan Eshkeri is a composer who knows his way around costumes, be it past or present. Starting his scoring career in England swinging a gladiator’s sword for two TV movies about the Coliseum, Eshkeri has fitted on the blood-stained mob business suits of LAYER CAKE, provided a rousing fantasy score for the eccentric wizards and air pirates of STARDUST, elegantly showed that YOUNG VICTORIA had sex appeal, helped apply the battered spandex of KICK-ASS and returned to the valiant last legion of the Roman Empire’s CENTURION. But whether the era demands a score that’s humorously enervating or bold and bloody, […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: WRONG COPS director Quentin Dupieux gets surreal again

WRONG COPS | ©2013 IFC

If Salvador Dali had gone indie film, you might expect the end result to resemble the satirically brilliant work of Quentin Dupieux. As set in an alternate universe called Los Angeles, Dupieux’s movies are an anything-goes collection of bad behavior, obnoxious truth-seeking and the serene acceptance of the insane, whether he used a psychic killer tire to deconstruct the movie going experience itself in RUBBER, had a dweeb’s hunt for a dog take down self-help cultism in WRONG, or now uses police corruption as an acerbic commentary on the music biz in WRONG COPS – just one of the many […]Read On »
