Live-orchestrated screening of P.T. Anderson's Punch-Drunk Love announced

12.11.2015

Now this is pretty damn cool. BAM has announced that Sony and director Paul Thomas Anderson have produced a new, scoreless print of PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE, and it will screen this spring with Jon Brion's original score re-orchestrated and performed by a live orchestra. The Wordless Music Orchestra have been tapped to perform for the special screening, with Ryan McAdams and percussionists Yuri Yamashita-Morales and Wilson Torres conducting.

According to BAM's announcement, the live-orchestrated screening will have a runtime of 2 hours and 20 minutes, which is about 45 longer than the original version of the film, so it may include deleted scenes or an intermission, or they simply made a mistake in the listing.

The event will be held on March 19, 2016 in New York City, and tickets (which you can purchase here) will run you $45 a pop. Would this be something you'd be interested in checking out?

Anderson's most under-appreciated film. Love Punch-Drunk Love! I would totally see this!

I love the fact that P.T. Anderson is one of those directors where you find yourself seeing his film on opening night surrounded by an audience of movie nerds who rave only about "There Will Be Blood" and "Boogie Nights". One of my bosses who is a Sundance Grand Jury Prize Award Winner, and even though we may not see eye-to-eye on most movies we both agree that Punch-Drunk Love is P.T. most underrated movie and we love this film. He also added it's probably his best story, and it's the only

I liked the movie, but I don't remember anything about the music score. That means I didn't love it nor hate it.

Did you see The Master or Inherent Vice?

I did. Never read the book Inherent Vice, so I was unable to gauge the incoherence of it and how it translated. But as a movie I thought it was a watchable jumbled mess. The Master was ok but way too serious and forgettable at the same time. Phoenix was amazing. But PDL just infuriates me. It was just so utterly pointless.

I read Inherent Vice and can say that it was a jumbled mess as well so pretty faithful, feel the same way with The Master, I'm not sure if I was so amazed watching Punch Drunk Love at how Sandler was actually able to give a good performance that I may have overlooked the faults. That said I dug it for what it was and really like Hoffman in it, still a far cry from Boogie Nights, my favorite by the director.
