Fay Grim (Original Soundtrack)
American filmmaker Hal Hartley has always made original music for his films. In the early years they were mostly guitar based, but as the years passed a larger ensemble gradually emerged. The music for Fay Grim is based on themes first created for the film Henry Fool (1998). Fay Grim is something of a sequel as well as a satire on contemporary international relations. So, some of the fun of this soundtrack is in hearing the earlier band-sized themes twisted and turned towards the color and gravitas of a windswept romantic espionage movie. A limited edition, only 2000 copies of this disc have been printed.
