The Nine Inch Nails mastermind provides the dark and fragile score to David Fincher's latest film
This is Reznor’s third soundtrack for director David Fincher, and ‘Gone Girl”s narrative is matched perfectly by the Nine Inch Nails man and regular collaborator Atticus Ross. The seemingly idyllic life of a married couple (played by Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck) is translated into docile ambient textures. But when Pike’s character Amy goes missing and the finger of blame is pointed at her husband things get darker. When it comes to threatening and intense soundscapes, Reznor has few peers. The fragile piano melody of ‘Just Like You’ stands out, but this 90-minute piece is best digested whole, as another accomplished Reznor film score.
