How Amazing Was Writer/Film Critic, Lex Brisuco's, Marie Antoinette (2006) Themed Sweet 16 Birthday Party?

Film Critic and writer, Lex Briscuso joins Nicole and Ryan to talk about the 2006 Sophia Coppola film, Marie Antoinette and it's iconic soundtrack. The soundtrack pulls from the 80s, 90s, and aughts with tracks from Gang of Four, Siouxie and the Banshees, The Strokes, Aphex Twin and more! Coppola put the soundtrack together with soundtrack supervisor, Brian Reitzell, who had worked with Coppola on her previous films, Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides. We previously talked about Reitzell in our Stranger than Fiction episode.

We talk about how important of a role the soundtrack plays in the film and we share some of our favorite needle drops. We also talk about how Aphex Twin's song, Avril 14th, found a weird 2nd life after appearing in the film.
