Muze PNote The ostensible theme of this film is John Cusack's occupation as a hitman, but the real hook is his visit to his 10-year high-school reunion. Cusack's lovable assassin graduated in the mid-'80s, a much-maligned time in music history that actually provided some of the freshest, most exciting new sounds of the last 20 years. The GROSSE POINT BLANK soundtrack proves this point by dishing out one irresistible '80s "new wave" classic after another.
Muze PNote From the reggae-rocking paranoia of the English Beat's "Mirror In The Bathroom" to the restless angst of the Violent Femmes' "Blister In The Sun," the album delivers high-energy reminders of what it was like to come of age in the Reagan years. For many, these songs were all that got them through those times. For those too old or too young to share that experience, the music stands up just fine on its own.
