Jon Brion's score to Paul Thomas Anderson's 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."

News & Reviews

  • IndieWire has published its list of The 25 Best Movie Scores of the 21st Century, including five for which Nonesuch released the soundtrack: Philip Glass's score to Stephen Daldry's 2002 film The Hours; Clint Mansell's for Darren Aronofsky's 2006 film The Fountain, performed by Kronos Quartet and Mogwai; and three scores to Paul Thomas Anderson films—Jon Brion's for 2002's Punch-Drunk Love, and Jonny Greenwood's for 2007's There Will Be Blood and the just-released Phantom Thread. IndieWire says "the last 18 years have given us some of the most memorable music ever written for the movies."

  • Filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson is on the latest episode of WTF with Marc Maron. He talks with Maron about his life and all of his films, including his latest, Inherent Vice, which expands to additional US theaters this weekend. Nonesuch Records released Jonny Greenwood’s soundtrack to Inherent Vice in December and has released their previous collaborations, There Will Be Blood and The Master, as well as Jon Brion's soundtrack for Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love. Tune in to WTF on Thursday for Maron's interview with Boyhood director Richard Linklater.
