Advantageous 2015 Full Movie

Advantageous is a 2015 American science fiction drama film directed by Jennifer Phang and starring Jacqueline Kim, James Urbaniak and Freya Adams. In a near-future city where soaring opulence overshadows economic hardship, Gwen and her daughter Jules do all they can to hold on to their joy together, despite the instability surfacing in their world. The score is composed by Timo Chen.

I saw a little bit of this on Netflix and I was taken back by the fact that everyone is so cold and calculated in the future and that includes the surroundings. The opening cue ‘Opening’ reflects that society with s slightly chaotic futuristic electronic theme. Well that’s just it, it’s not a theme per say, it’s more textural, a mood setting cue. The music fits the premise perfectly, yet I can’t quite enjoy it on album as much as I did in the movie. The story is not all cold though. It’s about the human condition in an overcrowded and harsh world. In the story you have a mom and her daughter trying their best to survive and that’s where the film gets it’s love. It’s not reflected too much in the score though. It has it’s warmer moments, but mostly it’s ambient cold electronica. Only a few times, the violin and guitar is used to take away the cold feeling this score gives me.

There is a cue called ‘Photos’ which is synth based for the first half, but it’s warm and has a nice theme. It could be quite emotional given the right scene. The second half features a cello but it feels slightly colder than the synths. I really enjoy the theme though. This is really great music. I think the longer cues really help. The almost 4 minutes long ‘Photos’ and over 6 minutes long ‘The Experience’ is paving the way for some more subtle developments not possible in shorter cues. I wish there were more like that but most cues are quite short in comparison. I liked this score, but the coldness got to me. I think it would be “advantageous” to hear it in context and the little that I heard while watching the first 20 minutes of it was solid and really served as a great backdrop to a heartfelt story. On album it’s hard to get convinced. I am convinced that the world is cold, but other than that it’s hard to extract something from it. I guess what I’m saying is that even though I enjoyed it, there wasn’t any emotional hook for me. What do you think of the score?
