Title - 'Rosewater' (HOWE Records)
Artist - Howard Shore

The feature film, 'Rosewater' marks the screenwriting and directorial debut of The Daily Show host and anchor Jon Stewart. A true story, the film is based on the New York Times best-selling memoir Then They Came for Me: A Family's Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival, written by BBC journalist Maziar Bahari.

Acadamy Award-winning composer Howard Shore is among today's most celebrated, honored, and active composers and conductors and he has done yet another masterful scoring job here on 'Rosewater.' A 16 track CD, Shore - 'The Brood,' 'Crash,' 'Eastern Promises,' 'Lord of The Rings,' 'The Hobbit' - contributes to this important story together as a solo composer and as a group of gifted musicians re: Leonard Cohen on 'Dance Me to the End of Love,' and Persian musicians Mahdyar Aghajani on both 'Vagheyi' and 'New Bloom,' and the final track, 'Ye Baade Khonak' with 25 Band.

One of the stand out tracks for me is '"New Bloom' which is (as noted) one of the two tunes from Iranian musician Mahdyar Aghajani. 'Vagheyi' is the other, but what the latter misses, the former doesn't; tonal wise. Complete with electronic movements and even light rap elements, it works beautifully here. Also, the atmosphere of 'Evin Prison' (where the main character is held) is one of immediate threat, but the melancholic 'Maryam' (the moment when main character thinks back to his older sister) holds a sombre sadness of longing, that's for sure.

'Rosewater' follows the story of Tehran-born Bahari's imprisonment in Tehran in 2009 and his interrogation at the hands of a man he knew only as Rosewater. Accused of espionage while covering Iran's elections for the BBC, Bahari was stunned to find among the government's supposedly incriminating evidence personal photos from dinner parties, his Facebook posts, and his appearance in a segment on The Daily Show.
