    Variety: Greenwood's Music Marks Return of the Epic Score

    "These are flush times artistically for film music," writes Variety's David Mermelstein, "with epic scores back in vogue and newer voices only growing in authority." First among the scores he points to as examples of this new filmic new wave is Jonny Greenwood's music for Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood, calling it "a darkly haunting orchestral tapestry willfully indebted to some of the great composers of the 20th century."
