  • Credits

    In keeping with her reputation for remarkable soundtracks (THE VIRGIN SUICIDES, LOST IN TRANSLATION), writer/director Sofia Coppola, in collaboration with music supervisor Brian Reitzell, offers up an inventive and eclectic two-disc collection for her 2006 film, MARIE ANTOINETTE. While the mood of the French period-piece is captured by Reitzell's classical performances (see the delicate rendering of Scarlatti's sonata, "K. 213"), that stately aesthetic is playfully juxtaposed with a slew of British post-punk classics, including Siouxsie & the Banshees' "Hong Kong Garden," New Order's "Ceremony," and the Cure's shimmering "Plainsong." Other significant additions to the album are tracks by 1980s "Burundi beat" acts, including Bow Wow Wow, whose "I Want Candy" and "Fools Rush In" benefit from excellent remixes by My Bloody Valentine recluse Kevin Shields.
