Yesterday I took a look at music supe Tracy Mcknight, a perfect specimen for me to shine my rather thick spectacles upon. Here’s part two of that look, now with media. Aside from a few huge movies like “Hotel Rwanda,” and some high profile documentaries like Oscar nominee “No End In Sight,” McKnight’s roster is lined largely with indie films. These are a few with great/interesting/both soundtracks I hope you got the chance to see, and if they slipped by you, now you can.
I wish I had a sweet editing suite, cause I’d put together one of those montages that makes you shovel popcorn into your mouth too fast at the theater and completely forget what movie you’re there to see. Just pretend these are reeling ’round you in the dark.
The opening to Jim Jarmusch’s “Coffee and Cigarettes” featuring the original “Louie Louie” written by Richard Berry. Goddamn that song’s good.
“End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones”
Tom DiCillo’s “Delirious,” surprised me and became one of my favorite films from ’07.
“Fierce People” features a sound track that includes the Dead Kennedys, Talking Heads, and an Irving Berlin tune sung by Donald Sutherland.
