Since the (very) black comedy Citizen Ruth announced him as a writer-director to be reckoned with, Alexander Payne has been one of the most consistently acclaimed American filmmakers of the last 15 years; he doesn’t make movies very often, but when he does, both critics and audiences take note. Recently, he released his latest, The Descendants, starring George Clooney. With special guest Joseph Belanger (of Black Sheep Reviews), we’ll be taking a look at Payne’s latest, along with his 1999 breakthough, the bleakly funny Election.

I didn’t think I would have to insult the intelligence of our readers by pointing out a very simple fact, but based on the first comment we received, I guess I should make something clear. This is a list of our favourite soundtracks of 2011. We are currently working on a list of the best original scores, which should be posted sometime within the week. Let us know if you think we left out any soundtracks you would recommend. Enjoy!
10 – Young Adult
One of the themes of Jason Reitman’s upcoming film Young Adult, is the idea of being stuck in the past, and trying to relive your glory days, and so it’s no surprise that the soundtrack to the film is loathed with 1990s alt-rock cuts. Due December 6th via Rhino Records, the fifteen-track disc features the Replacements, the Lemonheads, Dinosaur Jr., Teenage Fanclub, Cracker, 4 Non Blondes, Veruca Salt and many more. »
Roman Coppola has been working in the film business for over a decade, but he only has one feature to his name, that being 2001′s Cq. Sure, he’s done music video work and second unit material on the films of his father, his sister, and friend, Wes Anderson — whom he co-wrote The Darjeeling Limited and Moonrise Kingdom with — but that’s not the same. Fans of his debut would certainly like to see a sophomore effort, so there’s some good news for them.
We learned last year that he would be jumping back into the fray, and ThePlaylist has dug up a little detail on the website for film composer Roger Neill — he collaborated with the director on Cq, while recently doing work for films like Beginners and Tanner Hall. Anyway, said website has a listing for Coppola‘s new project, which is called A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III. »

Briefly: It's been nine months since we heard anything about the new film that Roman Coppola is reportedly putting together. He's been busy working on music videos and collaborating on features, often directing second unit, with sister Sofia Coppola, father Francis and friend Wes Anderson. But it has been just over ten years since Coppola's one feature directorial effort, Cq. (A film that holds up quite well on repeat viewings.) So we're ready to see something new from the guy. Last year Sofia Coppola said  her brother was working on something new, but she offered no details, and reps for Roman Coppola were not forthcoming with more info. Now we've learned that the title of the film is A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III. The Playlist  dug up the info on the website of Roger Neil, who scored Mike Mills' wonderful film Beginners. (He did some work on Cq as well. »

'Beginners' & 'Tanner Hall' Composer Roger Neil Writing Score Late last year, during the press rounds for "Somewhere," we spoke to Sofia Coppola, who was tight-lipped, but gave us a little teaser bit of info and a bit of hope: her brother Roman Coppola was finally working on a new film. “He’s working on something new,” she told us coyly. Something he would writing and directing again we asked? “Yeah, he’s working on a script that he put together.” To recap, it's been ten years since Coppola made the the weird and wonderful “Cq” in 2001. The writer/director's paean to… »
