What can I say, I love this film even more with each passing viewing. Not necessarily Sandler’s best comedy depending on your own personal taste, but this is certainly indisputably his finest film performance by far.
“Paul (Thomas Anderson) makes movies with the music already fixed in his head â€“ it’s a huge, integral part of his work. So integral to this project, in fact, that Anderson asked friend and frequent collaborator Jon Brion (Magnolia) to create a temporary score to be played on set during production.”
– Producer JoAnne Sellar on the music in Punch Drunk-Love
“Paul suggested different tempos, then my engineer and I recorded a series of 10-minute ensemble percussion pieces that the actors listened to between takes to give them an idea of the scene’s rhythm.”
– Composer Jon Brion on working on Punch-Drunk Love
