Illustration for article titled This is No Death Wish: Charles Bronson  the Movie Soundtrack of the Week

The Charles Bronson I'm referring to is also known as "the most violent prisoner in Britain" and the subject of the very awesome, very artful 2008 biopic Bronson from director Nicolas Winding Refn. It was because I enjoyed Winding Refn's Valhalla Rising that I queued up Bronson on my Netflix list initially and it's a shame I had put off watching it until only last week. Both movies are now among my favorites, as is Winding Refn as a director. One of the aspects that makes Bronson not just good, but great, is an expertly applied collection of refreshingly enjoyable tunes for the soundtrack. So in honor of that, and because Friday nights demand their own soundtracks, I share my favorites here on the ODeck.


New Order — Your Silent Face

The Walker Brothers — The Electrician

Glass Candy — Digital Versicolor

The Flower Duet (Lakmé)

And later tonight I'm gonna rewatch another favorite (again — because I fell asleep during the last rewatch attempt), Glengarry Glen Ross.
