We’ve all had that moment when we’re watching a good film, and all of a sudden a song starts playing that you’ve never heard before, but almost immediately it’s become your favourite song of the moment, and you can’t stop whistling it on your way home. A good soundtrack can be the buttery icing on an already deliciously cakey film, and here’s our handy Top 10, just for you.
This week saw the first teaser trailer for the last instalment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, and we here at Best For Film were…well, there was a feeling that we’d seen it all before. The gloomy Gotham-scape, mumbled dialogue, lots of shadows and buildings and shiny digital compositions. It’s slick, and it’ll probably turn out to be a good end to a so-far great trilogy, but a tiny part of us was thinking: “It’s not as good as Memento, is it?”. Still, Nolan isn’t the first indie director to be lured in by the lights and financial muscle of Hollywood, as this handy list will attest to.
