Men Composer Ben Salisbury on Scoring Alex Garland’s A24 Film With Portishead’s Geoff Barrow and How Jessie Buckley (and a Bird) Helped

Composers and musicians Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow have scored all of filmmaker Alex Garland‘s work to date, including three features and the FX series Devs, but their score for Garland’s summer release Men is next-level — it’s music that’s as haunting and eerie as the film itself. For those unfamiliar, Barrow is one-third of the acclaimed British band Portishead, while Salisbury comes from a background scoring nature films and […]

Mad Max: Fury Road Composer Tom Holkenborg (aka Junkie XL) on Reuniting With George Miller for Three Thousand Years of Longing

Composers

George Miller’s adaptation of Three Thousand Years of Longing flew under the radar when MGM released the film earlier this year, but it’s worth seeking out on VOD and digital platforms, as not only is it a visual feast, but it once again finds Miller working with Grammy-nominated composer Tom Holkenborg (aka “Junkie XL”), with whom he worked on Max Max: Fury Road. Holkenborg gives Miller’s latest film a rich score that’s […]

Union Roundup: New Mexico Film Commissioner Amber Dodson Says the State Is in Showbiz for the Long Haul

Stranger Things
Columns

Our post-election, Georgia Peach logo-meets-Wakanda Forever column drew an interesting email from the New Mexico Film Office. Would we be interested in chatting, they asked, now that their governor, Democrat Michelle Lujan Grisham, has also been handily reelected, as the state seeks to emphasize its specific differences with Georgia? Before, this kind of conversation would have been restricted to differences in production tax incentives, and perhaps the square footage of […]

TÁR movie
Awards

Earlier today, Todd Field‘s drama TÁR was named Best Picture by the New York Film Critics Circle, which also gave Cate Blanchett its Best Actress award on the strength of her latest acting clinic.
