Cliff Martinez – The Neon Demon Soundtrack

Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon is wonderful so long as you don’t overthink it. The disquieting story of a 16-year old’s entry into the self-obsessed milieu of LA’s modeling scene, it’s as nasty, blunt, and self-consciously shallow as its cast of scarily-thin characters. Like them, the film is infinitely more concerned with how it looks than it is exuding any pretense of depth. Never the best storyteller, Refn’s made a film that speaks almost primarily to the senses, not just through his vibrant, Kubrickian visuals but also through the spooky, sparkling score of Cliff Martinez.
