Palindromes Music Online

Nathan Larson, who, as previously reported, is once again collaberating with Todd Solondz on his latest film, has put up some of his Palindromes music for free download in mp3 format on his website, (under "film work").
Larson describes the film, "Another one from Todd Solondz , so you have the general idea. I happen to think it’s some of his best work, he takes massives risks here and pulls off stuff I don’t think I’ve ever seen done, including swapping out the actor for the main character every 10 minutes; for some reason it works beautifully. I got to rip off the ROSEMARY’S BABY soundtrack, collaborated again with my wife Nina, always a pleasure; plus it was the first feature I did almost entirely on the laptop with which I write you now, at the now defunct Globe Studios, overlooking the Meat Packing District in New York City in it’s final days. Once a strange, nasty, and wonderful area, it’s now one big high-end designer outlet mall like everything else. Anyhoo, PALINDROMES has been very well recieved at the usual round of festivals, and apparently it’s been sold, thank God, as Todd paid for it himself , thus risking total financial annihialtion. Balls. Thank god somebody already bought it, and the film is due out in the states in April 2005."
There's also music from most of his other films up for download... lots of good stuff. So get the heck off of this site already, and go check it out (but be sure and come back):

Thanks to Daniel, again, for pointing this one out to me.

Official Palindromes Site and Trailer

The official Palindromes website is now up, though at the moment it's still a content-less hold page that says,
A Film by Todd Solondz

Coming Soon"
...See for yourself at: I've added it to the links on the main page... Hopefully there'll be something a bit more substantive there soon.

Also, IFilm has posted the official Palindromes theatrical trailer, along with three one-minute clips from the film. Check 'em out at:

"Props" to John for finding these.

Palindromes Release Date Set!

According to this month's Entertainment Weekly magazine, Palindromes is set to be released theatrically in the US on Wednesday, April 13, 2005. As reported here previously (10/13/04, Palindromes Sold; US Release), Wellspring has the US rights for Palindromes, and later plan to release this film on DVD in "late 2005."

Thanks to Daniel for spotting this and bringing it to my attention.
