Praise (1998)

Soundtrack Contribution/Collaboration: Warren Ellis (with Dirty Three)

Praise (1998)

Warren Ellis with his group Dirty Three contributed to the soundtrack for Praise (1998) an Australian film directed by John Curran. In the film, Gordon is a listless, chain-smoking asthmatic with a rather insipid libido. Cynthia is a slightly pudgy nymphomaniac with a bad case of eczema. After quitting his job at a Brisbane liquor store, Gordon makes a decision that will mark his life forever: becoming involved in Cynthia's manic parlor games of chemical and sexual excess. As the pair combust in warmth and madness, Gordon willingly enters Cynthia's web of indulgence, progressively losing himself in a woman who's ironically lost to herself.
