‘Slow West’ Makes Top 20 Best Films List For 2015 | The Playlist

John Maclean’s Buddy Western Is Now On VOD, Own The Soundtrack Feat. Score By The Mess Hall’s Jed Kurzel


Perhaps it’s no huge surprise that one of the founding members of offbeat rock group The Beta Band made a quirky movie as his debut, and a Western at that, but that’s exactly what musician turned filmmaker John Maclean did. An old pal of Michael Fassbender (he directed him in the terrific short “Pitch Black Heist” a few years back) McClean’s “Slow West,” is a whimsical fairy tale-esque American West fable that puts a wry spin on a dark story of love, revenge and fate.  Read the full story at IndieWIRE/The Playlist.


Slow West (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is out now via Lakeshore Records!  The album features score by Jed Kurzel (The Babadook, Macbeth); hear the original track, “Slow West” exclusively at Stereogum.  The critically-acclaimed film is said to have reinvigorated the Western film genre.  Watch Slow West, available now On Demand (rent it on iTunes).  See below for more on the album.
