Childhood of a Leader

Scott Walker’s score for Childhood of a Leader was bold, strident and frightening. It’s stranglehold was oftentimes the star of the show, and for a whole 115 mins I had that terrible dread you get on a roller coaster when it’s hauled up the first big hill and a world of shit is waiting when you get to the top.

Scott uses some of those hauntingly beautiful Cello sounds you get in Mica Levi’s score for Under the Skin (brilliant performance by Oliver Coates here).
