Paul Tomas Anderson’s new film started shooting recently with Daniel Day Lewis slated to star in the auteur film. Now, typically that would be news enough to get any film lover excited, but, into that mix you add Jonny Greenwood and all of a sudden you have (certain) Radiohead fans and film score enthusiasts doubly excited. The reason being that Jonny Greenwood’s film scores for PTA’s films “There Will Be Blood”, “The Master” and “Inherent Vice” are just spellbinding, mesmerizing and beautiful. The music works well on their own and they just add a new layer and another character to a movie that is already filled with some of the most memorable characters that have ever graced the screen.

Their previous collaborations have been multiple videos for Radiohead’s latest release, the documentary “Junjun”, the aforementioned scores for PTA’s films, to name a few. Below is a short video of the London Contemporary Orchestra rehearsing one of the greatest scores of all time…
