Virgin Suicides

Film review

I went to see The Virgin Suicides London premier at The London Film Festival. Sophia Coppala was even there. Unfortunately I don't think it will be on general release for several months.

Anyway, on to what you really want to hear. The score was great. Much more of a score than, what you would call, typical Air. A bit more symphonic and string based, but still retaining the creamy effervescence that only Air has. There was one track from Moon Safari as well (I can't keep names straight, so I won't try) (Ce Matin La - Ed). I wish there had been more score ,some bits were somewhat short, and perhaps the version that is released will have more material (I think this would be somewhat typical).

Along with the score, a soundtrack will also be relased. Sort of early 70's pop-rock ballard sorta stuff (not Air, but actually complimentary in a way). Englebert Humperdink sort of groove (I think one of the songs was even his). I don't really like that sort of thing, but whoever put the soundtrack together did a great job. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Kind of stuff that your crazy Aunt Martha would have hidden away in her attic.

As for the movie. Great. I don't want to spoil it for you. The score and the soundtrack are perfect for the movie.
