GARY LARSON'S TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE
 

Dance

MINIATURE MARY choreographed by Amanda Miller for the Frankfurt Ballett - 1989
Music by Bill Frisell - Before We Were Born & The Lone Ranger


Bill Frisell's music is featured in Gus Van Sant's film for Sony Pictures entitled Finding Forrester starring Sean Connery. Besides using music from Bill's catalogue of recordings, Gus asked Bill to create new music specifically for the film. Miles Davis' music is also featured prominently on the soundtrack. The soundtrack is available on CD from Sony Records.

While struggling to fit in at the prestigious and mostly white prep school that has accepted him on scholarship, a black teen with a genius IQ embarks on an unlikely and rocky friendship with a brilliant novelist who has been a recluse for decades. The writer mentors the teen through some very hard times, and the relationship ultimately enables the older man to grow and thrive. Finding Forrester also features Robert Brown, Anna Paquin, Busta Rhymes and F. Murray Abraham.

Wim Wender's film, The Million Dollar Hotel includes Bill Frisell on it's soundtrack as well as Bono, Daniel Lanois, Jon Hassell, Brian Eno, Greg Cohen, Brian Blade, Brad Mehldau & Chris Spedding. Produced by Hal Wilner and Bono, the soundtrack album has been released by Interscope Records. The album was recorded in Dublin and features 16 tracks from the film. It includes music co-written by Bill Frisell and songs by Bono and U2.

The Million Dollar Hotel is a story of friendship, betrayal and the overwhelming power of unconditional love. A gang of unique outcasts and misfits live in a downtown Los Angeles fleapit, known locally as the Million Dollar Hotel. Their story is seen through the eyes of a lovesick innocent named Tom Tom (Jeremy Davies), who has fallen head over heels for the tarnished street angel Eloise (Milla Jovovich). As their relationship develops, The Million Dollar Hotel becomes the focus of a police investigation: one of its residents, the engaging junkie Izzy, has come to a grisly end. To the amazement of his neighbors, he is revealed to have been the son of a billionaire media magnate. Every denizen of The Million Dollar Hotel falls under suspicion in the inquiry led by FBI hardliner, Detective Skinner (Mel Gibson). As Skinner's investigation proceeds, the lines between murder and suicide, sane and deranged, become very blurred indeed.
