Vinyl : ‘Nightcrawler’ Score By Eight-Time Academy Award Nominee James Newton Howard! Soundtrack LP Colored Vinyl in Two New Variations,



Academy Award®-nominated film, Nightcrawler, stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Bill Paxton and Riz Ahmed.  The album features score by eight-time Academy Award®-nominated composer James Newton Howard!  Why Nightcrawler should be added to your vinyl collection: the score plays a very prominent role in the film, informing on the perspective of the deliciously dark protagonist, “Lou Bloom” (Gyllenhaal), the sociopathic cameraman.

But the goal was to use  music see the scene from Lou’s eyes — that is, as a moment of great possibility for his career. “It really becomes an anthem of potential for his tremendous success,” Mr. Howard said. A more triumphant feel was in order.

“I think people could take that as an intentional miscue, but it really isn’t,” he said. “It was designed to orient people into understanding where he’s coming from as a character. And I think it’s key to the success of the score in the movie. – New York Times/Carpetbagger Blog

James Newton Howard‘s score for Nightcrawler played a very important role in the film as director Dan Gilroy’s approach “was to use the score as a way to get inside the head of Lou Bloom (Mr. Gyllenhaal).  That meant music that sometimes seemed discordant with the action on screen.”(New York Times)  Get the full details on the vinyl release from Invada Records at Bloody Disgusting.

Nightcrawler: James Newton Howard-Scored Film Receives Academy Award Nomination

Congratulations goes to Nightcrawler’s Dan Gilroy for his Academy Award nomination in Writing (Original Screenplay)!  This James Newton Howard-scored film received critical acclaim since its premiere at Toronto International Film Festival in September.

And speaking of James Newton Howard, film music critic “Scorekeeper” named his score for Nightcrawler one of the Top Ten Film Scores of 2014:

What I love most about Howard’s music for Nightcrawler is its ability to perfectly convey a strong degree of “creepy curiosity.” I’m also tickled that Howard’s main theme is actually quite victorious. It’s absolutely appropriate for a hero or principle protagonist which Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) certainly isn’t…or is he? That’s the philosophical revolving door at the heart of this film which makes it one of my favorites of the year.” – Brian Satterwhite
