We got to chat about his work both on and off screen for this latest episode of Soundtracking.

Episode 54: Steven Soderbergh

Thank god he thought again about retiring from making films. Steven Soderbergh is back with the brilliantly raucous and funny Logan Lucky. He’s made so many fantastic films and always with a level of social commentary, layers to peel back from your initial interpretation of uhis w movies. It was a real thrill to get time with Steven to take a step into his world and discuss music. I hope you enjoy.

Episode 53: Doug Liman

American Made is his new film which sees him team up, once again with Tom Cruise. I think they bring out the best in each other and I might have told him that during this interview. Doug Liman has been responsible for so many moments in my film watching history fro Swingers to Go, Bourne to more recently The Wall, he’s unpredictable and I think it’s fair to say a non-conformist. I see this as a snap shot into world, I hope there can be more.

Ep 51: David Lowery

It’s still very early days in the career of David Lowery but what he has done with his new film, “A Ghost Story,’ is to make one of my films of the year. A touching and powerful look at human existence and how that transcends time and emotions and relationships. And that’s not even the half of it. The score to this film is divine and I had a blast chatting to him about this and his other works.

Ep 50: Sarah Bridge

Happy 1st Birthday to us. It seems fitting that we explore the wonderful world of the music supervisor with the fabulous Sarah Bridge. She’s worked across a number of hugely impressive and creative productions and it was a total pleasure to pick her brain and find out more about a role that definitely doesn’t get the recognition or celebration it deserves. I hope you enjoy.

Episode 48: Sofia Coppola

Here we are then, a real dream come true getting time with Sofia to talk about her incredible films and music. I’m such a huge fan and kind of geeked out in front of her but I hope you enjoy the results. Her latest film, The Beguiled is out now and thoroughly deserving of her Palme d’Or.

Ep 47: Edgar Wright Prt 2

I can’t thank Edgar enough for finding the time in his crazy schedule to talk to AGAIN. This time about his fantastic new film Baby Driver. He’s raised the bar and changed the dynamics of how contemporary music is used within the framework of a movie. Already looking forward to Part 3.

Preview: Edgar Wright Prt 2

Baby Driver, the new film from Edgar Wright is bloody brilliant. He told us in his last Soundtracking Ep that we needed a whole session just to talk about the music in it. He wasn’t wrong. And with that comes some perks of the job.
