Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I flew to England to see the rough cut of Revolutionary Road (2008). I was quite moved. As a married man, it's kind of a disturbing to see a couple try so hard to work things out and fail so miserably. How do you suggest hope and hopelessness at the same time? You start thinking along the lines of the lift of a phrase followed by the droop of a phrase. See more »

Trivia:

During the 2000 Summer Olympics, parts of his scores to Erin Brockovich (2000), The Shawshank Redemption (1994), and How to Make an American Quilt (1995) (and possibly others) were played on NBC during short biographies of certain athletes. See more »

Trademark:

Tuned percussion (e.g. marimba, chimes) often plays a part in his scores, figuring especially prominently in American Beauty (1999). See more »
