Shutter Island Soundtrack Now Available
02.23.10 by reelz
Much of the unsettling, gothic feel of Martin Scorsese's new movie, Shutter Island, comes from its soundtrack. Produced by the legendary Robbie Robertson, the soundtrack offers a compilation of atmospheric scores and period radio crooners. Here's how one critic described the movie's music:
But the element that most strikes the senses in Shutter Island is the stunning use of music. Robbie Robertson serves as a super-savvy musical supervisor, supplying some of the great 20th-century modernists — György Ligeti, John Cage, Morton Feldman, and Ingram Marshall’s haunting "Fog Tropes" — and coming up with the greatest use of modernism in an American film since ... ever.
