    Soundtrack For 'Arbitrage' Includes Score By Cliff Martinez, Songs By Bjork, Billie Holiday & More

    If it's one thing we love, it's a great Richard Gere performance. After mistakenly labeling 2002 "The Year of Gere" (due to three fine performances in "The Mothman Prophecies," "Unfaithful," and "Chicago"), it looks like this year might actually live up to our really stupid title. Gere stars in "Arb...

    Cliff Martinez Got His Big Break In Film Scoring From 'Pee Wee's Playhouse'

    'Contagion' & 'Drive' Composer Talks Working With Soderbergh, Nicolas Winding Refn & Possibly Working On 'Only God Forgives'When we last sat down with composer Cliff Martinez, the Matthew McConaughey-starring "Lincoln Lawyer" was his last work, and the film, and score, were both warmly received. Mr. Martinez, familiar to fans of Steven Soderbergh for scoring several outstanding films in the director's filmography, including his standout score for "Solaris", was generous enough to sit down with us again - with two very well received films now in theaters (Soderbergh's "Contagion" and Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive"), we talked about his first ...

    Empire Big Screen '11 Review: Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Drive' Reminds Us Why We Love The Movies

    Good god, it's been a bad year at the cinema. It's not so much that there've been a lot of awful films, although of course there have. It's more that there have been a lot of deeply average ones, and very little greatness to share around. Even the better end of the scale, it's not quite scratched the right itch for us: as good as, say, "Beginners" or "Win Win" or "Midnight in Paris" are, they don't quite get the synapses firing in the way that truly great cinema does. It's the kind of thing that the crime flick has always done well -- there's a reason that the Cahiers du Cinema crowd worshiped early American genre pictures, for example, but t...
