Ep. 221 - James Newton Howard's 'The Devil's Advocate'
It's Halloween! • Drama, Mystery, Thriller, 03-May-2023
'The Devil's Advocate' is a psychological thriller that explores the dark side of human nature, where the line between good and evil is blurred. One of the most notable aspects of the film is its haunting and memorable score composed by James Newton Howard. The music is used to great effect in emphasizing the film's themes of temptation, corruption, and isolation.
In this scene, the haunting beauty is juxtaposed with the eerie loneliness and deep sadness that Kevin Lomax feels while alone in New York City. The vocal soloist in the score contributes to the dissonance, creating an unsettling atmosphere that lingers in the mind long after the credits have rolled.
