Listen to Mike Patton’s Score for The Place Beyond the Pines
The Place Beyond the Pines — although known as “that new movie where Ryan Gosling plays a bank robber who really likes Metallica” — features a score by Mike Patton, and that score is now streaming at Pitchfork. It’s typically atypical work for Patton; if you’re expecting something schizophrenic and wacky like his score for Crank 2, you’re going to be disappointed… or maybe elated. This music is sparse, understated, and a little sad, as I would image is befitting the new movie from the writer/director of Blue Valentine.
The Place Beyond the Pines opens in limited release today, and seems to be getting favorable reviews, for whatever that’s worth. You can check out the trailer below.
