Dan Romer and Benh Zeitlin are the genius’ behind the score to and the direction of what I believe to be one of the most moving and beautiful films/american tales to ever be told. The movie is Beasts Of The Southern Wild and the films original score is probably one of the most beautiful and enchanting scores to ever be produced. In the vein of Mark Mothersbaugh, Dan Romer takes what is occuring in the film and transports you into the moment and into the scene. His beautiful composition should hands down receive best score over the weekend. But then again, the Academy is a total joke. Whatever, it’s award ceremony season and this film deserves tribute, both for its score as well as its story,acting, cinematography, and direction. The music of Romer mashes cinematic bliss into your ears and arouses your spirits with the ability to conquer anything through unexpected and improbable joy. Romer tells the enchanted story that is Beasts Of The Southern Wild as effectively with music as Zeitlin does with direction.
Enjoy today’s jam of the day.
