Punch-Drunk Love [Soundtrack]

news & reviews

  • about this album

    Jon Brion's score to Paul Thomas Anderson's 2002 film Punch-Drunk Love, starring Adam Sandler in a Golden Globe–winning performance, helped cement Brion's "reputation as a sonic translator of wistful, often silly, sometimes harrowing existential pathos," says the New York Times. "The score is alternately swooning and percussive, and it is as important an element as Mr. Sandler's performance."
