Before he started scoring comedies, Theodore Shapiro wrote two standout scores for David Mamet. The first was State and Main, released by RCA Victor on CD. The second was Heist, an underrated, lippy thriller starring Gene Hackman, Danny DeVito and Delroy Lindo delivering classic, profanity-laced Mamet barbs. Shapiro's score harkens back to a '70s aesthetic with bass and a solemn brass theme not unlike Ron Grainer's The Omega Man. The score also has a sharp-edged Goldsmith feel, particularly Goldsmith's smoky Chinatown and aggressive L.A. Confidential. Released only as a promotional disc, and yours for $0. Remember, stay quiet, as quiet as an ant pissing on cotton.
