5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best compilations of 2009, 26 Dec. 2009
With this soundtrack, music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas has outdone herself yet again. The woman who was behind the wonderfully refreshing "Music from The O.C.", who earned a Grammy for "Grey's Anatomy", and who is also responsible for the highly successful (and well-chosen) soundtrack of the first "Twilight" film, has assembled an eclectic mix of previously unreleased songs from numerous Indie-gods. With this, she strikes home and absolutely nails the tone and feeling of the story - maybe even that of a generation.
Those who know the heartbreaking tale of loss, friendship, sacrifice, and love, will suffer with protagonist Bella immediately upon hearing the melancholic songs. Even most of the lyrics mirror the story exactly and take the listener on a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
But this CD also creates a very unique and autonomous tone of its own that emotionally carries the movie further. It is one of the rare gems which prove that soundtracks can be much more than a random, insignificant musical underscore of motion pictures. This is why I strongly (and without hesitation) recommend this compilation also - or maybe especially - to those who have outgrown their teenage years and who do not know or like the books or movies, but who merely treasure good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars painfully true and simply wonderful, 19 Oct. 2009
This review is from: How To Be [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
For lovers of indie-movies, this (tragi-)comedy about an unsuccessful and aimless young man who invites a self-help guru to live with him in order to "be more normal" is a true gem!
With brutal honesty and a great, quiet sense of humor, it perfectly captivates the angst of young adults and their struggle into what is supposedly real life. Consistently good acting, a neat score and many little laughs from many lovely little details make for inspiring, yet in no way condescending entertainment - because who does actually know "how to be"...?!

3.0 out of 5 stars great acting, 19 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Haunted Airman [DVD] (DVD)
Clearly a made-for-tv-movie, this film is not spectacular, yet captivating, disturbing, and very well acted.
Unfortunately, the DVD lacks any kind of bonus material or subtitles.
