With music by the Grammy Award-winning composer Danny Elfman, ‘Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot’ is written and directed by Oscar Nominee Gus Van Sant and stars Joaquin Phoenix, Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara, and Jack Black. Four-time Oscar nominee Danny Elfman has established himself as one of the most versatile and accomplished film composers in the industry. He has collaborated with such directors as Tim Burton, David O. Russell, Gus Van Sant, Sam Raimi, and Peter Jackson. Elfman has scored a broad range of films including: Milk (Oscar nominated), Good Will Hunting (Oscar nominated), Big Fish (Oscar nominated), Men in Black (Oscar nominated), and Edward Scissorhands.

For this Gus Van Sant movie depicting the life of John Callahan—a famous paraplegic cartoonist—Danny Elfman (Batman, Good Will Hunting, Milk) indulged in a particularly gratifying eclecticism. Rather logically, bebop pieces illustrate the improvised scenes between Joaquin Phoenix and Jonah Hill, as well as the epic wheelchair races. This aesthetic also allows to give energy to a story that is sometimes somewhat static (so to speak). And most of all, it translates the own dynamism, both atypical and deeply moving, of Callahan (Main title, The liquor store). In parallel with this jazzy energy, Danny Elfman offers quieter and orchestrally stripped-down moments, just like this beautiful piano piece called Mother’s name. In the same vein, the composer scatters on other sections many extremely smooth and warm timbers (piano, acoustic guitar, celesta, bells, ethereal voices, harp, flute, music box…) combined to highly strung writing, alternating strength, tenderness, unpredictability and slight worry. In short, this is a partition that perfectly reflects its colorful protagonist. Two songs complete this multicolored soundtrack, among which you will find a Texas when you go written and performed by John Callahan himself. It reaches heights of fragile emotion. – Nicolas Magenham
