Good Time [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

By the time Good Time won the Cannes Film Festival's Best Soundtrack award, Oneohtrix Point Never's Daniel Lopatin was an in-demand composer thanks to the potent moods within his own albums. For Josh and Benny Safdie's thriller about a man who has to beat the clock to get his brother out of prison, Lopatin uses his early work -- as well John Carpenter and Tangerine Dream -- as influences. On albums like Betrayed in the Octagon, Lopatin wasn't just ahead of the curve with these inspirations; he also used them less literally than many of the acts that appeared a few years later. Here, his fascination with the transformative powers of memory and nostalgia ensures Good Time never sounds derivative. The title track gives the lie to its name almost immediately, as the arpeggios that provided the foundations for '70s and '80s sci-fi and horror soundtracks squirm like living things among textures that waver between gritty and ethereal. Later, "Hospital Escape/Access-A-Ride" and "Entry to White Castle" make those rippling synths teeter between poignant and dangerous, while "Romance Apocalypse" and "Leaving the Park" exalt their beauty. Lopatin heightens Good Time's impressionistic approach by melding dialogue into the score, reflecting the close relationship of music and action within the film as well as Lopatin's creative partnership with the directors. "Bail Bonds" processes Jennifer Jason Leigh's voice into something extradimensional, while "Ray Wakes Up"'s blend of dialogue and sound effects reaches a masterfully disorienting peak. On the score's longest pieces, Lopatin takes listeners on journeys that rival anything on Oneohtrix Point Never's other albums. "The Acid Hits" and "Connie" travel from frenzied to mournful, and Iggy Pop adds the perfect amount of world-weary grit to Lopatin's ambient tones on "The Pure and the Damned." It's easy to hear why Good Time won an award before the film was even in wide release: The way Oneohtrix Point Never's score bridges character, setting, and mood offers much more than a passive backdrop.
