    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...

    Cliff Martinez Talks Scoring 'Lincoln Lawyer' & Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Drive'

    Says He Loved Alexandre Desplat's 'The King's Speech' Score & Was Hoping It Would Take The OscarFor years Cliff Martinez has been producing brilliant, but often times below-the-radar, scores, doing a lot of work for Steven Soderbergh. His first score was Soderbergh’s first film -- “sex, lies, and videotape” -- and from there the two have collaborated on a number of projects, including “Solaris,” "Kafka," "The Limey" and “Traffic.” That relationship is still going strong as they will be reteaming once again, on this fall’s virus thriller “Contagion.” On the occasion that Martinez does work for another filmmaker, the results are usually just as...

    Composer Cliff Martinez Talks Score For 'Contagion' & Working With Steven Soderbergh

    Says Soderbergh Is Temping The Film With 'French Connection' & 'Marathon Man' ScoresEXCLUSIVE: Working at a relentless pace, Steven Soderbergh's work ethic has benefitted not only from his drive and focus, but from surrounding himself with a regular group of collaborators who understand his process and approach to filmmaking. And one of those regulars is composer Cliff Martinez (a former drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers too). He has worked with Soderbergh ever since his debut "sex, lies & videotape," contributing to films big and small including "Kafka," "Traffic," "The Limey," "King Of The Hill" and more.
