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.
