SmartSound Music Featured In Netflix Original MovieCompany News :: June 29, 2017
SmartSound music has been featured in a major Netflix movie.
Okja, a major new film just released by Netflix has garnered critical acclaim and created its share of controversy. To be honest, the film and its content haven’t created any controversy. Critics and audiences love it. The controversy surrounds the fact that Netflix is giving the film a theatrical release, an outsider infringing on traditional Hollywood turf.
SmartSound music was used in one of the scenes as background music.
The Verge has a nice article about the movie. Below is an excerpt with a link to the full article.
Okja is a lot of things. It’s the latest intensely specific vision from Snowpiercer director Bong Joon-ho. It’s a ham-fisted environmental parable. It’s a sweet coming-of-age story, a wonky 21st century iteration of E.T., and another thrilling opportunity for Tilda Swinton to be weird as hell. But whatever else it is, it’s also exactly the movie Netflix needed to release this summer.
Bong’s new film is a near-future science fiction love story, the tale of a young farm girl named Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun) and a massive genetically engineered pig named Okja. The forces working to pull them apart are Tilda Swinton’s Monsanto-inspired agro-chemical company on one side, and Paul Dano’s Mr. Robot-y environmental activism group on the other. Jake Gyllenhaal’s weaselly Zoboomafoo-era television host is also in the mix, playing the stomach-churning MC of the whole affair. It’s a dizzying hodgepodge of neoliberalism critique, coming-of-age saga, and heist flick. Bong soundtracks a scene of pratfall mass destruction in an underground mall with John Denver’s shlock classic “Annie’s Song,” in a tonal clash that could be the envy of any number of stylish young pastiche directors. But his long, grotesque scenes in a New Jersey slaughterhouse look like something you’ve seen only in the worst grindhouse slasher film on the shelf.
