Copperhead (Soundtrack) by Laurent Eyquem - Review

Copperhead (Soundtrack) by Laurent Eyquem - Review

Civil Score
Review by Edmund Meinerts

Director Ron Maxwell seems to have a thing for making a Civil War movie every decade; after 1993’s GETTYSBURG and 2003’s GODS AND GENERALS we have 2013’s COPPERHEAD (though no direct sequel this time). Musically, Maxwell has relied on broad thematic scores from RANDY EDELMAN and JOHN FRIZZELL, the latter in particular the surprising highlight of a career otherwise dominated by mundane horror efforts. For COPPERHEAD, Maxwell turned to little-known, classically-trained French composer LAURENT EYQUEM, who has followed suit with an impressive score with an emphasis on melody, emotion and beauty.
