by Ari Stein in New Film on Friday 15 February 2008

I checked out the prestigious Berlinale the other day, which is the moniker for the Berlin Film Festival. Besides being an awesome festival, filled with A-listers — Madonna and Scarlett Johanson, amongst others — I had the chance to see P.T. Anderson’s new film, There Will Be Blood, starring the genius actor, Daniel Day Lewis. The soundtrack has been written, scored and performed by Radiohead’s guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Jonny Greenwood. It’s truly amazing, based on a previous soundtrack he composed called Bodysnatcher. This one is full of avant-garde and Space Odyssey 2001 moments, atmospheric and richly textured.
