Making the Perfect Road Movie Soundtrack

Thursday, April 03, 2008

The new Wong Kar Wai film "My Blueberry Nights" features the acting debut of singer-songwriter Norah Jones and a soundtrack custom-built for a road trip. Songs by Jones, Cat Power and Cassandra Wilson turn up in the movie, and Ry Cooder composed the score. We talk about the soundtrack with director Wong Kar Wai and Wall Street Journal entertainment reporter John Jurgensen.

I saw Nora acting on Law and Order reruns - she had to be good to get that gig!
