Buy it... if you appreciated the highly varied collection of source rock songs in the film, ranging in culture and time period considerably.

Avoid it... if you expect the few moments of respectfully beautiful string underscore in the film to translate well to a rather dull presentation on album.

We Own the Night: (Wojciech Kilar) You have to wonder what goes through the mind of a filmmaker whose film is heartily booed at the Cannes Film Festival and press screenings. Could We Own the Night really be that bad? Director James Gray reunites with his two stars from The Yards for another grim tale set in Brooklyn, a locale evident in all his major films thus far. The story this time around is also equally cloudy, dwelling in the murky depths of gray scenery and vague commitment to a 1988 time frame. Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg play brothers born into a family of legendary law enforcement status established by their father, portrayed by Robert Duvall. When Pheonix changes his name to run a nightclub and live a life of riches based on the exploits of the growing Russian drug trade, the inevitable battle between his public persona and his family's enduring fight against crime is realized. The film's success rests on the gritty performance of Pheonix, fresh off his award-winning imitation of Johnny Cash, and early reviews have clearly identified this follow-up performance as the highlight of an otherwise questionable film. Did it deserve its round of catcalls at the screenings? If you're not a fan of lazy direction or mid-80's Ford Crown Victorias, then yes. The soundtrack for the film, unfortunately, may also cause some angst. Gray employs a collection of rock songs that defy the period of the film; while the story is supposed to resurrect that atmosphere of the late 80's, the songs chosen for the film are all over the map in terms of period. Classic rock from decades prior is forced to mingle with songs that were probably meant to be contemporary, but miss the mark by five to ten years too early. A Hispanic tilt to them is perfectly understandable given the presence of Eva Mendes in the role of Pheonix's Puerto Rican girlfriend and glittery gem of the nightclub. But when you hear all of these songs together on the soundtrack album for We Own the Night, the range is quite striking and it serves as evidence in support of claims that Gray completely failed at his attempt to convince audiences of the era.
