Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow have done it again: their collaboration with another Alex Garland film has earned them numerous accolades for their Annihilation score and the latest comes from Soundtrack Geek, who grants them the coveted 100% review rating! Have you seen the film in theaters and listened to their brilliant, visceral score?
If you did not have a chance to see Alex Garland’s critically-acclaimed Annihilation film in theaters, the much-talked about sci-fi movie starring Natalie Portman is now available on Digital (get it on iTunes)! The composers of the film, Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow, recently announced the forthcoming release of the vinyl album, as well as a CD, so stay tuned for that as well!
It’s a truly stunning piece of work, Garland’s visuals intertwined with that score, which was the product of Ben Salisbury and Portishead’s Geoff Barrow. – Stereogum
Haunting score – Rolling Stone
Absorbing and hypnotic, Annihilation is the best kind of sci-fi film – the kind that challenges and subverts the genre, all the while introducing new ideas that you’ll see in films to come. – Wenlei Ma, News.com.au
The most pleasantly surprising element of Rudderless is its soundtrack. The songs, most of which are actually performed by the Rudderless band (Crudup, Yelchin, Ben Kweller, and Ryand Dean, and primarily written by Simon Steadman and Charlton Pettus) are melodious and endearing, both humorous and moving. Crudup and Yelchin prove talented musicians. – Under The Radar
Director William H. Macy’s directorial debut in Rudderless, is now available On Demand via Starz — watch it tonight on Starz Edge at 10:10 p.m. ET! Starring Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Felicity Huffman, Selena Gomez and Laurence Fishburne, and rocker Ben Kweller (who made his acting debut), film critic Daniel Schweiger says, “Not since Prince’s end set of Purple Rain has a movie singer ripped his guts out to such powerful effect, if done here to understandably more lyrically strumming resonance for one of this year’s most powerfully moving film scenes.”
The critically-acclaimed Rudderless Soundtrack also features performances by the Rudderless Band (Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Ben Kweller, Ryan Dean).
