He's already given strong performances in two thrillers we liked a lot, in "Welcome To The Punch" and "...

    Clint Mansell Scoring Adaptation Of Irvine Welsh's 'Filth' Starring James McAvoy

    Musician and composer Clint Mansell doesn't crank out film scores, but when he does, it's always worth paying attention. Even when it's for otherwise forgettable fare like "Faster" or unjustly ignored dramas like "Last Night" (one of the key pieces of which is being u...
