Thomas Newman’s complete score for The Linguini Incident is now available on iTunes.
Pause to consider what this means.
The Linguini Incident, directed by Richard Shephard (whose biggest feature film is The Matador (2005), and who’s mostly known for directing select episodes of some really cool TV series), stars David Bowie and Rosanna Arquette as a bartender and waitress (respectively) who conspire to rob the swanky New York restaurant where they work. The film also stars Buck Henry and Marlee Matlin, as well as a young Maura Tierney, so given the cast, it’s hard to dismiss The Linguini Incident as a throwaway indie. Nonetheless, the film failed to make much of a splash at the box office, being dismissed by Variety as an “uninspired, poverty row production.” It was later released on home video under the title Shag-O-Rama, but even this failed to rock the cultural boat.
