Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and the Safdie brothers have developed a close partnership through their shared love of cult genre movies and music. As Josh Safdie recently said in an interview with Variety, 'I was a fan of his music… his albums are very conceptual, and he was making basically scores for movies that didn’t exist. So when we met on Good Time, after he saw the way we were using a lot of Debussey on our film prior to that, he was like, ‘Oh let’s get deep together,’ and we’ve become very close friends.'
Press reactions to Uncut Gems:
“A remarkable percussive soundtrack by Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never) overwhelms the constant whir of action.” - IndieWire
“Daniel Lopatin’s score mixes electronica and opera in menacing fashion that keeps viewers’ blood pressure high, but also contributes to the strange magic the Safdies are working.” - Thrillist
“There’s also an acute sense of neurotic, nervous energy which means the film zips by, aided by Daniel Lopatin’s electro-synth score which amps up the tension to breaking point while also adding a hint of the fantastical.” - Little White Lies
“The visual assault is matched by the sound. Howard approaches conversation like a machine gun duel; over the jostling layers of dialogue, Daniel Lopatin’s twitchy electronic score adds a further element of tension.” - Screen Daily
