James here with Movie Music Monday!
Three pieces from random sources today. They’re all somber in tone. I gravitated in that direction, so here we are.
Oh, boy. The ending of Ishiro Honda’s classic ‘Gojira’, scored by Akira Ifakube. Serious stuff.
Ah, ‘Blood Simple’. Chilling neo-noir. The Coen Brothers’ first feature — if I recall correctly — and their first collaboration with Carter Burwell, who showed just as much skill as his creative partners. This is a very Carpenteresque theme.
Now here’s something somber for you. Johan Söderqvist’s theme for ‘Let The Right One In’ is beautiful. That’s all.
