Ulee's Gold

Ulee's Gold

CD

Overview

The films of the underrated American independent director Victor Nuñez are renowned among cinephiles for their nuanced, thoughtful depiction of life in the rural communities of Florida's Gulf Coast region, and in longtime collaborator Charles Engstrom he's found the perfect musical accomplice -- Engstrom's intimate, richly atmospheric themes perfectly convey the quiet intelligence and emotional depth that underline Nuñez's vision. Ulee's Gold remains Engstrom's richest, most moving effort, employing piano, bass, flute, and cello to create a simple yet striking evocation of beekeeper Ulysses "Ulee" Gold's (Peter Fonda) pastoral world and the dangers that creep in from its margins -- its melodies seem to deflect attention, yet give them proper time and they sink in completely.
