Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood took a journey to India to record a new album with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur and regional musicians. Daniel Krepps writes in Rolling Stone about Paul Thomas Anderson’s eagery-anticipated documentary, Junun, about Greenwood’s experiences.
“Anderson and Greenwood began collaborating in 2007, when the guitarist provided the score for the director’s There Will Be Blood. Greenwood also composed the original music for Anderson’s next two films, 2012’s The Master and 2014’s Inherent Vice, the latter boasting an unreleased Radiohead song titled “Spooks” that was re-recorded for the Thomas Pynchon adaptation.
“Although Anderson is a veteran of music videos for artists like Fiona Apple, Aimee Mann and, most recently, Joanna Newsom, Junun marks both his first music documentary and debut documentary film in general.”
Junun premieres on the streaming serviceMUBI.com.
