Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee is an HBO movie that premiered at the end of May. I wanted to see the movie, but I just never got the chance to see it (Although it’s still saved on my TV). I used to be very big into the Native America culture, especially the Lakotas so this movie looked very interesting to me. This is based on the best-selling novel, and it stars Aiden Quinn, Anna Paquin, J.K Simmons, and Adam Beach.

George S. Clinton was picked to composed the score to this HBO original movie. No he’s not from the Parliament Funkadelic and no, he’s not related to Bill Clinton. George S. Clinton composed the Austin Powers movies, Red Shoe Diaries, Mortal Kombat, A Dirty Shame and some others. Clinton did extensive research on the Lakota, and Native Americans. There is a male choir present throughout the score that sing in Lakota, and haunting Native American flutes in some of the tracks as well. The mixture of Native American chanting & choir singing and the orchestra is a nice touch. The overall score is quite haunting and I’m sure it reflects what’s happening in the movie. For a film score, this album is pretty short but if you liked the music from the movie, you’ll want to hear this album as well. I’m just not sure if this album was officially released to the public yet or if there are any plans for it.

Bottom Line: Just an overall good score.
