MUD Starring Matthew McConaughey In Theaters Now

Phillip French at the Guardian describes MUD as, “Mark Twain meets Sam Peckinpah in Jeff Nichols’s exhilarating coming-of-age movie.” We couldn’t agree more about this indie film gem. The music and soundtrack album are  probably best described by Film School Rejects as follows,

Mud is engaging from beginning to end and when listened to on its own, its soundtrack is almost a sonic dream of that narrative, highlighting the various emotions and changes each character goes through. Mud is certainly not without its unsettling and pulse-pounding moments, which the music strategically amplifies in tracks like “Hotel” and “Clinic,” but overall the soundtrack plays like one you would listen to while spending a lazy day on a porch swing.
