In honor of the Jesse James Revival taking place tonight in New York, check out the round up of pieces on the film posted over this past week on The Film Stage, HitFix, Ain’t It Cool News, Film.com, and Film School Rejects celebrating Andrew Dominik’s work:
Living in the Shadow of ‘Jesse James’: An Appreciate of Casey Affleck’s Best Performance
Roger Deakins reflects on ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’
Mr. Beaks Ponders Brad Pitt’s Performance In ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’
How Warren Ellis and Nick Cave’s Music Haunted ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’
Revival Goes West: Is ‘The Assassination of Jesse James’ About to Become a Confirmed Classic?
Panem is a terrifying place as depicted in The Hunger Games, but thanks to the rise of Hunger Games champion, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), the people of Panem have a symbol of hope.
I highlight the tracks off both The Hunger Games & Catching Fire soundtracks that best create this dystopian sound of terror and hope.
Did you love the music in Love Actually and Bridget Jones’s Diary? How about Notting Hill and Pirate Radio? Music that simply makes you feel good?
I propose that Richard Curtis is the master at soundtracks because he knows how to perfectly combine pop music and score to create compilations that will make you laugh and cry.
Director Scott Cooper had Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder create new music for his recent film, Out of the Furnace, but once Cooper saw Vedder’s music within the film, he thought the singer’s well-known voice and powerful songs took him out of the narrative rather than bringing him further in to it.
I explore whether or not I agree with this reasoning in this week’s Aural Fixation.
