iTunes Review

Composer/longtime Steven Soderbergh collaborator Cliff Martinez says the director threw him a “big curveball” when it came time to score his Cinemax series. “As he was editing, he was using my music from Drive, Contagion, and Spring Breakers," Martinez explains, “which was a surprise because it didn't acknowledge the
