Product Description

Nick Nolte and James Coburn deliver some of the finest work of their respective careers in this powerful but troubling adaptation of Russell Banks's novel. Wade Whitehouse (Nick Nolte) is the sheriff in a small New England town; it's a part-time job with few taxing responsibilities, and Wade fills his many free hours by swilling booze, smoking pot, and thinking back on his nightmarish childhood. Wade's father Glen (James Coburn) was by turns callous, distant, and abusive, and Wade has inherited his addiction to alcohol and inability to deal with others. Consequently, Wade's ex-wife (Mary Beth Hurt) despises him, his daughter is uncomfortable and frightened in his presence, and the only person who can reach him is his loving but long-suffering girlfriend Margie (Sissy Spacek). When a wealthy businessman is killed in a hunting accident, Wade suspects foul play and pursues the case with an obsession that puzzles all around him; meanwhile, Wade's mother dies and his brother Rolfe (Willem Dafoe), the only one in the family to escape Glen's abuse without crippling emotional scars, returns to pay his respects and is caught up once again in the damaged lives of his father and brother. James Coburn) won an Academy award for Best Supporting Actor for his work in Affliction, while Nick Nolte was nominated for Best Actor (he lost to Roberto Benigni). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Hard to imagine, but Michael Brook's score for Affliction is just as dark and probing as the Russell Banks novel this movie was based on. Using electric guitars and synthesizers, Brook (Heat, Albino Alligator) creates a haunting and dissonant soundscape that continues to unsettle even after the music is over. "Late Night Conspiracy" is a slow but methodical guitar run; "Night Flashback" hums with tension; and the frenetic drums on "Chase" and "Wade Goes Wild" raise the pulse rate. The Turtle Island String Quartet adds moody strings throughout, but this creepshow mostly relies on the otherworldly sonics of synths. All told, it's sinister stuff. Beautiful, but unrelenting. --Jason Verlinde

This score is both a compliment to the film and a wonderful piece of ambient music on its own. There's a feeling of unease running throughout the piece as well as melancholy, and you'll easily recall the novel (if you've read it) or some story with a tragic ending. The music recalls Howard Shore's CRASH score, which is really the highest praise I can give it. Really great!
