"Richard Linklater's stunning double feature at Cannes this year - A Scanner Darkly and Fast Food Nation - represented not the international super-sizing of this always prolific and political American director so much as the ideal opportunity for his audience to engage in another Linklaterian game of comparative pop." - VILLAGE VOICE
Park the Van Records is pleased to announce the release of the official soundtrack to the motion picture Fast Food Nation!
Distributed in North America by Fox Searchlight & directed by indie darling Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused), Fast Food Nation is based on material from the muckraking book of the same name written by Eric Schlossser. The New York Times bestseller, published in 2001, was an incendiary nonfiction exploration of the industry, and the film version casts a critical eye on fast food in the United States through the destinies of three characters: a marketing executive of a fast food chain, an employee of the same chain, and an illegal immigrant working at the slaughterhouse. Fast Food Nation dissolves the saccharine-coated facade of the fast food industry and exposes its scathing impact on not only our diet, but also our landscape, economy, workforce, and culture.
The film boasts an impressive ensemble cast that includes Greg Kinnear, Patricia Arquette, Bobby Cannavale, Luis Guzman, Ethan Hawke, Ashley Johnson, Kris Kristofferson, Avril Lavigne, Esai Morales, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Lou Taylor Pucci, Ana Claudia Talancon, and Wilmer Valderrama.
After premiering at the Cannes Film Festival on May 19, the film is scheduled for release in November 2006. The soundtrack, featuring music from and inspired by the motion picture, features luminaries such as Spoon, Nortec Collective, La Sinfonia, Elvis Perkins, Robbers on High Street, and more. The most grisly scene in the film is accompanied by the music of Friends of Dean Martinez, who recorded the score and thereby contributed to what could be perhaps the most dramatic combination of music and film in this century.
