Andy and I were lucky enough to see Park Chan-wook’s new thriller Stoker a few weeks ago.  Look for a full review on the site as we get closer to the film’s release, but for now, I can reveal that I’m already looking forward to seeing it again when it gets released on March 1. The film’s haunting imagery is made all the more powerful by a score that rides the line between beautiful melodies to bone-chilling soundscapes.  Clint Mansell (Requiem For A Dream) is behind the score but the recently released track from the film – which plays at a pivotal scene between Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode in the film – is actually a piano piece written by the legendary composer Philip Glass.  Music scholars are quick to point out the impact that Glass has had on modern music and his skill for combining a modern approach with classical stylings. »
