The Sunset Limited arrived in 2006. Commissioned by Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater, it premiered in May, with publication thereafter. The play takes place in a shabby tenement apartment, where Black (a former convict) and White (a university professor) discuss “big questions” about God, faith, life, and death following Black’s saving White, who had attempted to commit suicide by jumping in front of an oncoming subway train. HBO subsequently produced a successful adaptation of The Sunset Limited starring Samuel L. Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones (directed by Jones).
Most of the album showcases recordings made specifically for the movie — and along the way demonstrates that Marcus Mumford ought to cut a record with Oscar Isaac on his next break from Mumford & Sons — but Inside Llewyn Davis closes with a nicely chosen pair of archival recordings. One, a previously unreleased recording of Bob Dylan performing "Farewell," provides a nice reminder of what came out of the scene the fictional Llewyn Davis occupied. The other winds down the proceedings with Van Ronk doing "Green, Green Rocky Road." Isaac performs the song elsewhere in Inside Llewyn Davis , but if Van Ronk's life indeed inspired the film — his music was farther-reaching and considerably more idiosyncratic — it only makes sense that he'd get the last word in edgewise.
In post-production, Embassy's self-imposed role in making Crimewave was even greater.  Although Raimi, Tapert, and Campbell insisted that they had made the film as partners, the studio refused — because of the already ballooning costs — to pay for Campbell to stay in Los Angeles during post-production (although the executives later compromised).   The studio replaced Raimi's music composer, Joseph LoDuca , with one of its own choosing. It did the same with the editor, removing Raimi's influence over the film's final cut.
