Following on from the very jolly Musical Monday posts on The Magnificent Seven and Jurassic Park, this week’s Musical Monday takes a look at a much darker film, Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for A Dream, and it’s recurring theme, Clint Mansell’s Lux Æterna.
I first saw Requiem for A Dream about a year ago. However, I’d known about this song a long, long time before. I knew it was from Requiem for A Dream and, though I didn’t at that point know what the film was about, I thought that the song was very powerful and dark.
Lux Æterna is an intense song that is very haunting, and suits the mood of Aronofsky’s dark drama perfectly.
