Rank #20: First Man by Justin Hurwitz (Ep. 119)

Podcast cover
Read more

Director Damien Chazelle and composer Justin Hurwitz next collaborative effort, FIRST MAN, has launched into theaters and, while heading to new explorative heights, dives deep into astronaut Neil Armstrong's depressive state. Dane Walker, Kristen Romanelli and Christopher Coleman discuss their expectations and reactions to the hotly-anticipated by some, hotly-controversial to others, film and original score. They talk at length of Hurwitz's use of theremin throughout the score and what his intent in doing so may have been as well as the tracks they consider stand-out efforts. Lastly, the three discuss the film and score's place among films that are centered around the USA's role in the Space Race and how First Man differs from films like: The Right Stuff and Apollo 13.
