This month, these two Blu-ray and DVD releases comes to you from Academy Award®-nominated Director Rob Reiner, and Jared Moshé, director of the acclaimed western, Dead Man’s Burden: LBJ and The Ballad Of Lefty Brown, respectively. Rob Reiner’s LBJ showcases an almost unrecognizable Woody Harrelson in the titular role, with score by five-time Academy Award ® nominee Marc Shaiman (The American President, A Few Good Men), and Bill Pullman is in his element in The Ballad ofLefty Brown, with score by H. Scott Salinas (Cartel Land). See below for critics reviews, trailers and purchase links!
Although he predominantly worked on popular comedies, his scores were never anything less than sophisticated, and emotionally direct, as works like City Slickers, The Addams Family, A Few Good Men, the Oscar-nominated The American President, the Oscar-nominated The First Wives Club, and the Oscar-nominated Patch Adams attest. LBJ is a superb return to that style of scoring. – Jonathan Broxton, Movie Music UK
