On The Rise: Composers - 2014, feature header
At times, the eagle eyed film enthusiast could be forgiven for thinking that there were about four composers scoring high profile films. Hans Zimmer scored five films last year, and four films this year. Alexandre Desplat managed six in 2013, and five in 2014, while Christophe Beck topped both with seven last year, and six in 2014. Once you're in demand, you're really in demand, and the top tier of movies is very much dominated by established figures to the extent that up-and-comers must feel that it's impossible to break through.

With festival season fast approaching, undoubtedly one of our most anticipated films is "Under The Skin." The long-in-the-works project, an adaptation of a novel by Michel Faber ("The Crimson Petal and White"), marks the return to feature filmmaking by commercials/promo wizard Jonathan Glazer, who made a storming debut with the excellent "Sexy Beast," and followed it up with the even better, much undervalued "Birth."
