Oh I definitely agree, as a whole it makes sense; but watching that particular scene in isolation, it seems lazy.

I like the overall score for the film, like I say, once put into context, the way it has been arranged makes sense when portraying the edgy futurism.

However, the foley work could have been better for the whole film; although that is technically a different department from the music.

Oh, and Id like to add to favorite film music... Requiem For A Dream (though it seems an obvious choice, now), Waking Life and Ghost Dog.
