Gaspar Noé's Controversial 'Climax' Soundtrack to Feature Song By Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter
"Climax" will sound a lot like Daft Punk.
The soundtrack from Gaspar Noé's controversial film will feature a new song by Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter titled "Sangria." His previously released track “What to Do” and Daft Punk’s “Rollin’ and Scratchin’” will also be included.
Other songs on the soundtrack are Aphex Twin’s “Windowlicker,” Giorgio Moroder’s “Utopia - Me Giorgio,” Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go,” and more.
Bangalter worked with Argentine filmmaker Noé on his previous movies, 2002's "Irreversible" and 2009's "Enter the Void."
"Climax" follows a dance party that erupts into chaos. Young dancers gather in a remote and empty school building to rehearse on a cold and wintry night. The all-night celebration soon turns into a hallucinatory nightmare when they learn that their sangria is laced with LSD.
The film was screened at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, where it won the Art Cinema Award. It has attracted some controversy for featuring scenes of orgiastic sex and self-mutilation.
"Climax" opens in France September 19, in the U.K. September 21, and has been acquired by A24 for a pending U.S. release.
