Directed by James Ponsoldt, The End Of The Tour tells the story of the five-day interview between novelist and Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel), which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace’s groundbreaking epic novel, Infinite Jest.

Eno and Wallace share a similar affinity for pop that undergoes transmogrification, resulting in art: Eno flensed the hooks and choruses from his pop music so only the music’s essence was left lingering; Wallace took pop culture and exhumed its soul, using his slang-laced prose to dig at deeper, often darker truths. -Greg Cwik, The AV Club

The Music Supervisor on The End of the Tour is Tiffany Anders (Goodbye World, Smashed, Like Crazy). The story is a great example of the impact of music in movies and how songs can affect the overall tone of a scene. Please note there are possible spoilers in the story as the writer dissects the use of Brian Eno’s song in the films. Read the full story at The AV Club.
