The sound of violence

The sound of violence: also from The Guardian. The problem here is that I don’t buy this idea of violent images ‘subverting’ pop, because it assumes that the visuals dominate the music, when I’d say the relationship, especially in films like Mean Streets, is much more equal and amoral: pop is cool. Violence is also cool. Put two cool things together and you get something cooler.
