24 Oct Matt Scudder’s Theme
It’s quite magical and mysterious how music can add so much to what would otherwise be shots of Liam Neeson, playing Matt Scudder, walking through a cemetery in the daytime – lots of shoe leather. Yet through the music itself we are perhaps allowed to form a deeper relationship with Matt, or at least address the character’s vulnerability.
This is also one of the few instances in the picture where music not only plays a central role in setting the tone, but also allows a melody to clearly define it’s character. Scott always felt that Matt Scudder was a sad dude – he’d blown it. And the music should reflect the weight of his redemption.
