Coppola and Golijov

Francis Ford Coppola’s new film, “Tetro” is about two brothers and their domineering Father, an orchestra conductor. It’s the first original screenplay he’s written since 1974’s “The Conversation” and is apparently quite personal. Personal in that it’s drawn somewhat from his own life and his father who was also a conductor. But the rivalry and dysfunction is all fiction. He told the NY Times, “Granted that classical music was part of my life, but my father was a wonderful and talented man who didn’t get his break in life until much later and was nothing like the monster portrayed here.”

Coppola paired for the second time with renowned composer Osvaldo Golijov, to bring the music of “Tetro” to life. Golijov, who composed the music for Coppola’s “Youth Without Youth” was born in Argentina where the film is set. He’s the perfect partner for Coppola who yearns for the original work he once performed in his youth and has begun to get back to. His attitude about Hollywood is that it’s full of shallow douche bags who can’t do anything but think of ways to monetize people and art. Ok that’s probably my attitude. But, Coppola did tell the Times, “My attitude is, ‘Who cares about them?’ ” he said. “It’s an industry that just makes the same movie over and over again and rules out a climate of experimentation.”

So it’s no surprise Coppola seeks people who think outside the Hollywood formula box. In choosing Golijov, he’s chosen a composer who doesn’t even know the formulas for film scoring. Golijov says of his score for “Tetro,” “the music that I wrote was born from the movie, as opposed to something that goes well with the movie.”

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
