We Are Legion | The Story of the Hacktivists – Soundtrack By John Dragonetti

WE ARE LEGION: The Story of the Hacktivists, takes us inside the complex culture and history of Anonymous. The film explores early hacktivist groups like Cult of the Dead Cow and Electronic Disturbance Theater, and then moves to Anonymous’ own raucous and unruly beginnings on the website 4Chan.

Through interviews with current members – some recently returned from prison, others still awaiting trial – as well as writers, academics and major players in various “raids,” WE ARE LEGION traces the collective’s breathtaking evolution from merry pranksters to a full-blown, global movement, one armed with new weapons of civil disobedience for an online world.

The musical score of We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists was created by music composer and producer John Dragonetti. A co-founding member of the band The Submarines.

“The music is definitely inspiring and moving, whether or not you believe in the causes of the Anonymous movement. The music created for this documentary by John Dragonetti is an example of modern musical composition that is definitely worth taking a listen to.”

Fathers Day Soundtrack : The Tree Of Life by Alexandre Desplat

The Tree Of Life, Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Music by Alexandre Desplat

David Ng from the Los Angeles Times writes,

In each of his five feature films to date, Malick has used classical music as his principal soundtrack. “The Tree of Life” features selections and snippets from more than 30 individual pieces — including works by Brahms, Mahler, Bach, Górecki and Holst. They are all woven together seamlessly with the help of some original music by Alexandre Desplat.

A movie that envelops the intimate story of a family between the birth and death of the universe, “The Tree of Life” is a cosmic experience that resists easy narrative summary. The film won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in May but has polarized critics and audiences. At its core, the movie focuses on the conflict between the natural and the spiritual worlds, which is to say that it pits the seen versus the unseen.

Malick’s choices of music stand in for the unseen in this thematic equation, though not always in obvious ways. The media-shy filmmaker is said to be a classical-music buff, along with being a birdwatcher and a hiking enthusiast. His soundtrack selections for “The Tree of Life” could spawn a lengthy essay on their own. Here are a handful of key pieces that provide the movie with some of its most musically inspired and memorable moments …

FILM TRAILER:

MUD Starring Matthew McConaughey In Theaters Now

Phillip French at the Guardian describes MUD as, “Mark Twain meets Sam Peckinpah in Jeff Nichols’s exhilarating coming-of-age movie.” We couldn’t agree more about this indie film gem. The music and soundtrack album are  probably best described by Film School Rejects as follows,

Mud is engaging from beginning to end and when listened to on its own, its soundtrack is almost a sonic dream of that narrative, highlighting the various emotions and changes each character goes through. Mud is certainly not without its unsettling and pulse-pounding moments, which the music strategically amplifies in tracks like “Hotel” and “Clinic,” but overall the soundtrack plays like one you would listen to while spending a lazy day on a porch swing.
