Listening Post

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is one of those movies I hold dear to my heart. It's a criminally overlooked work of art that was both moving and stunningly beautiful to look at, thanks to director Andrew Dominik and some of the best work cinematographer Roger Deakins has ever done.

Adding to the almost ethereally mournful tone of the film was the score, composed by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.

I listened to this quite a bit during my drive through the American west to reach California last winter.

Here's All Things Beautiful

Have you seen "The Proposition"? That's another good one with music by Nick Cave.
