Buy it... only if you clearly noticed the music within the film and are prepared for its extremely minimal construction.

Avoid it... if you tend to avoid lifeless orchestral film scores that blur the lines between music and ambient sound design.

Newman
Newman
In the Bedroom: (Thomas Newman) One of the most powerful and critically praised films to come from the independent arena in quite a while, Miramax's release of Todd Field's In the Bedroom stirred up so much positive hype in its showings at film festivals that it was streamlined to a wide release in hopes of shoring up Academy favor. The extremely engaging tale of a Maine family pushed to its limits by a crime was universally applauded for its ensemble performances and its outstanding sense of realism. Field had distant hopes that he could acquire the services of composer Thomas Newman for the film and, despite having almost a non-existent budget, the composer agreed to do what he could to muster an adequate sound for the dramatic environment. In the early years of his career, Newman filled a lengthy resume with small budget projects, for which he gained the recognition necessary for him to eventually assume the lifestyle of Alfred Newman. He then, however, gained his largest following by creating expansive orchestral scores for mainstream films, catapulting him into several Academy Award nominations. But then, at the turn of the century, though still landing blockbuster scoring assignments, Newman made a sudden and enormously contrasting change of style, returning to a minimalistic, small ensemble approach to his big name projects. With American Beauty and Erin Brockovich shedding every resemblance of the scoring technique he had employed at the popular height of his 1990's career, Newman acquired an entirely new fans base. The definition of exactly what this "minimalism" is had been fiercely debated, with some referring to it as "modernism" and others as a "less-is-more" approach.
