Hand Covers Bruise


I don’t get to see as many movies as I’d like. In fact I tend to only catch up on trans-Atlantic flights which is a very unsatisfactory way to watch a good film.

I was able to catch The Social Network on a trip back from London recently and apart from being an excellent watch in it’s own right I was struck by how amazing the Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross score was. It perfectly captured the mood of the movie, accentuating the seeping, hypnotic unease of the unfolding events. It’s a great example of a soundtrack actively contributing to the message being conveyed rather than being the usual after thought of the producers. And standing on its own it’s a great record. You can grab the full soundtrack for five bucks digitally on Amazon at a reasonable bit rate. Sadly there doesn’t seem to be a vinyl release. Still highly recommended, though.

    Aha, yes! I did, Joey, and the same thought occured to me at the time. I should have included that in the post actually…

    Can't agreed more with your post. There's an article about the Swarmatron and its "beehive-ish sound" Reznor employed for the soundtrack (New Yorker 1/24/11).
