One element that will stick with people is a score which, as composed by Antony Partos and performed by Sam Petty, stands apart. Avoiding the bombast that’s so common in any modern picture even remotely driven by action, its rather a collection soundscapes that capture those barren, desolate feelings which are key to the film’s Australian outback setting.
On the eve of Netflix’s War Machine premiere, Lakeshore Records revisits David Michôd’s previous film, the powerful drama, The Rover, starring Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga, Remember Me), Guy Pearce (Memento, The Hurt Locker) and Scoot McNairy (AMC’s “Halt And Catch Fire”). The album features an original score by award-winning Composer Antony Partos (Days of Grace, Adore), with additional music by Sam Petty. David Michôd is one of Australia’s most celebrated filmmakers, winning Best Film at the Sydney Film Festival and Best Film at AACTA (Australia’s Oscars) for The Rover.
