Score Music Composer(s): Bruce Broughton

Bruce Broughton's accomplished score was thankfully finally released as a limited edition of just 3,000 copies in 2008.

In the recent book 'The Score' by Michael Schelle, Broughton describes how he orchestrated the music so that it was like a glue to hold together scenes where start and end points were esentially cul-de-sacs.
