By now, devoted cinephiles likely know what to expect going into a Gregg Araki movie: sex-crazed teens, an overabundance of nudity (sometimes pretty, sometimes not), a dream-like story wrapped snugly in a nightmare and a killer soundtrack… Joy Division, The Cure, and all of your favorite synth-pop bands are prominently featured, their instantly recognizable sounds oozing throughout the film. – Under The Radar

Guthrie’s most high-profile collaboration may be with a director: along with Budd, he wrote and recorded the soundtrack to Gregg Araki’s cult hit Mysterious Skin, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This year finds Guthrie joining Budd and Araki for another film, White Bird In A Blizzard, starring Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, and Gabourey Sidibe. For this film’s soundtrack, Araki asked of something curious from Guthrie: to revisit his past for the film’s music.
When it comes to the sonic world of a film, music should be used with delicacy and forethought as if it were a character itself. The audience shouldn’t feel manipulated by a score or a song placed over a scene just so, as the cinematic sounds of a movie should simply be another layer inside a moment of its own merit—enhancing our viewing experience by catering to all the senses. -BlackBook
