EDIT: I just ordered the soundtrack!
Thom Yorke & Flea, Wynton Marsalis, and Daniel Pemberton are some of the musical heavyweights whose music is featured on the soundtrack to “Motherless Brooklyn” - the film directed, written by, produced by and starring Edward Norton. Featured on the album are two versions of the song “Daily Battles , each performed by musical icons of modern music. Thom Yorke ( who wrote the song) along with Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Atoms For Peace) performs a sparse and emotionally stunning version. The other version of “Daily Battles” was arranged and performed by jazz trumpet icon Wynton Marsalis, who, along with his hand-picked quintet of heavy-hitter-jazz-stalwarts delivers an instant jazz standard version of the song that conjures images of the 1950’s-era gin-soaked Harlem jazz club seen in the film. Additionally the album showcases new recordings of several jazz classics along with and songs created by in-demand composer Daniel Pemberton – all in that same smoky-jazz-club vibe - recorded by Marsalis and his ensemble specifically for the film.
Pupster, methinks the Alec Baldwin Character, 'Moses' Randolph, was rather based on New York City's Master Builder Robert Moses...especially considering the time period in which this film took place.Finished this one tonight, and read that Norton wanted a Miles feel to the music, and the Baldwin character (builder-power broker) was written in response to the last election and a certain sitting President.
If you watch the movie pay attention to the song during the slow dance at the Jazz Club (Red Rooster) it's got some of the most gorgeous piano chords I've ever heard. Too bad the movie lost money at the Box Office, it deserved better.
True, modeled after Moses but also extra motivation due to similar characteristics (see the article below) and from a “Chinatown” (74’ movie) political slant about power grabs in the guise of revitalization for the benefit of “The Future.” One of neo-noir’s best.
I’ll need to order the CD soundtrack also. Hope you don’t mind some cross thread rambling, but I’ve always thought that soundtracks like this one could be excellent on a BD Atmos audio disc, as much for the sound quality as any surround mix. Another one that would be great in that way BTW is the soundtrack for “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"- (Alexandre Michel Gérard Desplat ) Of course there are tons more I’d buy in a heartbeat if available. Too bad we typically just get bits and pieces of the music in most movies, as it would be possible to rip them if they were whole pieces from the movie discs.
Edward Norton's performance in Primal Fear was extraordinary and certainly catapulted his career into the stratosphere as did American History X and Fight Club.True, modeled after Moses but also extra motivation due to similar characteristics (see the article below) and from a “Chinatown” (74’ movie) political slant about power grabs in the guise of revitalization for the benefit of “The Future.” One of neo-noir’s best.
Edward Norton’s Impassioned Project: How Trump’s Election Motivated the Making of Motherless BrooklynThe actor wrote, directed, and stars in the movie version of the modern noir novel, a film 20 years in the works that feels all the more vital today.www.vanityfair.com
I first became aware of Norton from the movie Primal Fear, in which Norton really impressed me with his acting.
NETFLIX is now streaming a 2 part documentary of crooner Frank Sinatra's ALL or NOTHING AT ALL [roughly 4 hours] which originally appeared on HBO in 2015. Watched it last night. Very fascinating overview of the Chairman of the Board and a MUST for FANS [like ME]
I haven't see that one but one of my early Blu-Rays I enjoyed was:
Too many to list but some of the bestI am fairly new to the surround sound game and I am wondering if there are any surround movies that have great surround sound. I am looking for movies that contain a lot of rear channel action. Most all of the surround movies I watch only have a few things in the rears. I am not partial to it being music or dialog just great examples of surround movies.
