Physical New Release:
IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK (CD) – [Download/Listen]
Barry Jenkins’ Academy Award® Winner If Beale Street Could Talk film is the most awarded film of the year. We’ll just let the critic reviews speak for itself. Own the Academy Award®-nominated film score by Nicholas Britell available now in uncompressed audiophile compact disc!
In this story, the musical themes inhabit and emote a world of young love beset by circumstances out of one’s control. It’s in the esoteric treatment of that struggle where Britell’s mastery is observed. – Charles Steinberg, Under The Radar
“Composer Nicholas Britell’s insinuating, supple music (a film highlight of 2018) seems to be setting the scene for a momentous occasion.” – Chicago Tribune
“The scenes come alive even more thanks to Nicholas Britell’s gorgeous score, laden with sweeping strings and brass melodies.” – USA Today
“Nicholas Britell composed the score, which is hauntingly and fittingly exquisite.” – Wall Street Journal
“Jenkins has made an absolutely gorgeous movie, from his vibrant color palette of saturated primary hues and pastels to Nicholas Britell’s mournful, poetic score.” – Washington Post
“Britell uses exquisite cellos, and melancholy, moody trumpets to create a beautiful hybrid haze of classical music and jazz” – The Playlist
“Score insanely beautiful” – Madonna

THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND is now streaming on Netflix.
OUT OF BLUE – [pre-order]
Score by Clint Mansell.
The noir quality of Out of Blue, with its intimations of murky family shame, brings out echoes of John Stahl’s Leave Her to Heaven or Roman Polanski’s Chinatown, and there is a woozy Lynchian dreaminess. – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
Based on Martin Amis’ 1997 novel Night Train, visionary Director Carol Morley brings us Out Of Blue, opening in US theaters on March 22. The film features the highly-anticipated score by GRAMMY® and Golden Globe® Nominee Clint Mansell (Black Mirror: San Junipero, High-Rise, Black Swan). Lakeshore will release the score album digitally worldwide on March 15. Partners Invada Records will release the vinyl (date to be announced).
When homicide detective Mike Hoolihan (Patricia Clarkson) is called to investigate the murder of a leading astrophysicist in New Orleans, she is confronted by a mystery that begins to affect her in ways she had never expected.
As the investigation deepens, a darker world is slowly revealed and she must use all of her skills and experience to piece together fragments of a wider conspiracy that lies behind the murder.
OUT OF BLUE is an unmissable neo-noir mystery in which one detective’s quest for truth begins to destabilise both her view of the world and her very being.
DRAGGED ACROSS CONCRETE – [pre-order]
Jeff Herriott & S. Craig Zahler, Various Artists.
Dragged Across Concrete, however, is his best work to-date for presenting a world of conflicting ideologies and characters with differing viewpoints. – Film School Rejects
