Synopsis

Album Description
Angelo Badalamenti a classically-trained performer, is best known for his hauntingly atmopsheric work with filmmaker David Lynch. The two worked together on the soundtrack of the director's 1986 masterpiece Blue Velvet and on the features Wild at Heart, Lost Highway and The Straight Story. Perhaps the most famous fruit of their collaboration was the cult hit television series Twin Peaks, for which Badalamenti created one of the most distinctive and evocative theme songs in TV history. FILM SYNOPSIS: Based on a film by the creators of the Japanese version of 'The Ring' comes this haunting, chilling film about a young mother who goes to extreme lengths to solve a mystery and protect her daughter. Acclaimed director Walter Salles ("Central Station," "The Motorcycle Diaries") helms and Academy Award®-winner Jennifer Connelly stars in DARK WATER, a psychological thriller featuring a stellar cast, including Academy Award®-nominees John C. Reilly, Tim Roth, and Pete Postlethwaite, as well as Dougray Scott and newcomer Ariel Gade. Based on a film by the creators of the Japanese version of "The Ring" comes this haunting, chilling film about a young mother who goes to extreme lengths to solve a mystery and protect her daughter. Dahlia Williams (JENNIFER CONNELLY) is starting a new life; newly separated with a new job and a new apartment, she's determined to put her relationship with her estranged husband behind her and devote herself to raising her daughter, Ceci. But when the strained separation disintegrates into a bitter custody battle, her situation takes a turn for the worse. Her new apartment - dilapidated, cramped, and worn - seems to take on a life of its own. Mysterious noises, persistent leaks of dark water, and strange happenings cause her imagination to run wild, sending her on a puzzling and mystifying pursuit to find out who is behind the endless mind games. As Dahlia frantically searches for the links between the riddles the dark water seems to close around her. But one thing trumps all others in Dahlia's world: no matter what it is that's out there, she'll stop at nothing to find it.

Angelo Badalamenti has done an exceptional job with this soundtrack score. I would describe the music as haunting, gripping, subtle and chilling. Basically, what one would expect from a score of this genre. Although there are no real surprises, the music gets the job done of creating the perfect atmosphere for the film. Many songs start off softly and slowly build up. I don't give it 5 stars for the simple fact that it's somewhat predictable. But I'll reiterate that as a whole, it's worth getting if you're into this type of score.

Long live Jennifer Connelly."
