Stream Oneohtrix Point Never’s Full Score for ‘Good Time’
One of the most effective — and simply best — scores of the year thus far is for the Safdies’ Good Time, from Oneohtrix Point Never (aka Daniel Lopatin). A frenzied, pulsating work that consumes much of the film, it’s perfectly attuned with the non-stop energy of the crime drama. With the film hitting theaters today (our rave review), the full score is now streaming, including the closing track featuring Iggy Pop.
“When we were working on the film, Josh and Ben would remind me to go harder and more out, because it’s very easy to mimetically revert back to [Tangerine Dream founder] Edgar Froese—it’s just in my DNA,” Lopatin tells Pitchfork. “Then Josh is in the room being like, “No, make it more fucked up.” His expression was, “Get micro,’ because he’s the exact same way.”
Check out the score below, along with a Vikram Gandhi-directed short starring and written by Robert Pattinson, as well as the actor and Safdies’ full talk from Charlie Rose.
Good Time is now in limited release.
