On a lazy Sunday afternoon a few months ago, I chanced upon the trailer for Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Back then I hadn’t heard of the book that the movie’s based on, but it already sounded like a fun movie so I watched the trailer. I was instantly hooked because (a) I love Michael Cera, (b) Kat Dennings is just so pretty, and (c) the song in the trailer sounded fabulous.
Watching the movie recently, I realised that the movie’s less about music – apart from the elusive (and fictional) band Where’s Fluffy? – and more about Nick and Norah’s quest to find Fluffy and Norah’s drunk friend Caroline, but it definitely has one of the best soundtracks in recent years.
Devendra Banhart, We Are Scientists, Bishop Allen, Band of Horses, Takka Takka, Richard Hawley and Project Jenny Project Jan are just some of the few artists that rock the movie. The soundtrack is a must listen – and the movie is a must watch – for anyone that loves music and movies.
