I havent heard this score but I am big Ottman fan mainly because of Bubble Boy and X2, I doubt I'll get because from what it says in the "Avoid It" section at the top. If I'm missing out on something great would someone tell me.

While I do not claim to be an expert of the complex interweaving of sound that comprises a 'soundtrack' I know that if I can consciously hear the music, if I am interrupted in my enjoyment of the film, then someone failed in his or her effort.

In 'Pumpkin' I found the score to be unobtrusive, and strangely supportive of the current thematic content of the film.

The only thing that stood out were two songs, one by Emiliani Torrini, and the other by 'Gentle Waves’ (??)

I do NOT usually search for a soundtrack, much less within 20 minutes of watching the film. Let this be an indicator, if you will, of just how much I liked the soundtrack, AND the score.

Much to my surprise, Torrini also performed 'Gollum's Song' Gentle Waves I have not found yet.

The film?

Film snobs won't like it, but as I disagree with most of the ratings on this site, I say, the hell with them, I know what *I* like, and I LIKED 'Pumpkin'

It's on Bravo this week, and worth the time...I didn't even get up to get another beer! (OMG! a BEER!?! - Imagine that - not a wine cooler! elitist snobs I tell 'ya! watch the movie...it's good.)

a love for pumpkin   Wednesday, April 14, 2004 (2:07 p.m.) 

i love this movie..no joke i saw it on the preveiws of a diff. movie and automatically went to'blockbuster' i think and picked it up. This movie is the best movie I have ever seen .i loved how Christina Ricci's character (caroline)had this internal conflict with herself. Accepting Pumpkin and trying to let it be okay that she loved him.Pumpkin...... i dont know about anyone else but i automatically fell in love with pumpkin too.:/.............

>I agree! Ricci's last look back to "normal" society at the end of the movie was beautiful! I love when characters connect with the audiance by looking directly in the camera... it really makes the experience.
