Overview

Atli Örvarsson's score for the 2008 thriller Vantage Point mixes and matches traditional symphonic orchestration with contemporary electronics to familiar but persuasive effect. While the music is cut from the same cloth as dozens of other action scores, there's no denying its taut, throbbing approach is a significant cut above the norm. Given the film's Rashomon-like story-telling conceit, which documents the same events from opposing perspectives, Atli Örvarsson could be forgiven for rehashing the same themes several times over, but instead he employs a series of specific character motifs that significantly widen the music's overall scope. Even better, cues like "Enrique and Veronica" and "President and Decoy" boast clever stylistic flourishes that evoke key character and plot points and bolster the music's decidedly cinematic texture.
