R.E.M. In The Movies | 'Monty Got A Raw Deal'
'Monty Got A Raw Deal'

A paean to the late actor, Montgomery Clift, whose career went downhill following a horrendous car accident in 1956. “Don’t you waste your breath for the silver screen,” sings Stipe in the chorus, which could be interpreted as a growl from Clift’s POV. A raw deal, indeed.

1 Until the End of the World
R.E.M. had a gorgeous track, Fretless, that appeared in this Wim Wenders film. It featured Kate Pierson and wouldn't have looked out of place on Out of Time. More

2 Vanilla Sky
Sweetness Follows lending the sequence of Tom Cruise's final collapse into the gutter a huge emotional heft. (Is 'heft' a word, I think it is) Great moment. More

5 Best R.E.M in movies for me is....
Leave, from New Adventures in Hi-Fi, over the soundtrack to A Life Less Ordinary. Absolutely the best bit of the film (not too difficult to be fair). More

I also quite liked the Michael Stipe/Rain Pheonix title track from 'Happiness' (1998) More

What about Michael Stipe's foray into producing? Velvet Goldmine and Being John Malkovich both have his name on the credits for what it's worth. A bit more of a concrete association with movies than a song being cinematic. More
