Philip Glass has created a big old fashioned film score for Woody Allen's thriller. In a way, both film and score represent departures for their creators. Of Allen's four completely serious films, this one bypasses his career long fascination with the tics and foibles of the upper classes and concentrates on two working class brothers who become embroiled in murder most foul at the behest of their rich, sleazy uncle. Glass turns out a Romantic score that would not have been out of place in a Hitchcock film or even a Swashbuckler !
Although Glass' score is attractive, I can't help but echo the complaints of the other reviewers. At 31 minutes this disc is no bargain !
