While bringing the characters from DC Comics to life, director Todd Philips uses Joker to confront real-world problems - particularly how neglected, bullied individuals are treated in Western societies. The Joker (played by Joaquin Phoenix) suffers from mental illness and lives with his mother in a squalid apartment. After being abandoned by Gotham City Social Services he gradually turns into a psychotic killer, murdering three men who represent the elite and becoming a hero for a handful of rejected and forgotten citizens. In a highly stylised yet nevertheless realistic context, the Joker’s intrusion into the world of superheroes is reflected in the film’s soundtrack. The music is characterised by striking contrasts, with feel-good retro songs on the one hand and extremely dark non-diegetic music on the other. Composed by the Icelandic cellist Hildur Guðnadóttir, Joker’s soundtrack revolves around threatening percussion and layers of deep, throbbing strings (contrasting against the higher-pitched ones in Charlie Chaplin’s song Smile). Occasionally, a choir appears in the soundtrack, acting as a common link between the two atmospheres. Some of the highlights of the soundtrack include Defeated Clown and Following Sophie, two tracks which are wrapped around a persistent drum pattern. Other gems include the heartbreaking Subway, the staccato strings in Penny Taken to the Hospital and the moving, triumphant climax Call Me Joker. A unique and passionate soundtrack by a woman who some consider to be the successor to the late Johann Johannsson. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Like the show itself, the soundtrack to the final season of Game of Thrones contains a number of callbacks to events and music that came earlier. Composer Ramin Djawadi weaves his main theme throughout his new compositions, using it tenderly and sadly on "For Cersei" and as a glimpse of hope on the closing "A Song of Ice and Fire;" elsewhere Serj Tankian of System of a Down makes a cameo performance on "The Rains of Castamere." While familiar motifs reign on Game of Thrones: Season 8, these echoes of times past also help give this score a sense of bittersweet finality, while also letting the moments that run against the grain shine in sharp relief. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

    Tenet: The Score of a Lifetime! Ludwig... Goransson? The soundtrack to a film that begins with a chilling sequence in a concert hall (Rainy night in Tallinn) and written by a man named Ludwig could be nothing less than promising! The Swede, Ludwig Göransson replaces Hans Zimmer (Christopher Nolan’s usual collaborator) in this complex spy thriller. ...
