This is a comments thread about Blog Post: Film Score Friday 2/5/21 by Scott Bettencourt

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross join the exclusive ranks of Peter Gabriel, Nick Cave, Stewart Copeland, et al -- rock musicians who could write a twelve-minute score for xylophone and cymbals and still be drowned in accolades from critics who care nothing for film music (and in fact have a secret contempt for it). The wholly unremarkable score for MANK would have passed entirely unnoticed had it been written by a regular composer. TENET must be on the list because the music was "talked about". The most purely thrilling piece of film music of the year was Zimmer's "Themyscira" from WW84 -- surely that deserves recognition, regardless of the quality of the film.
