Inhalt: Anyone who has enjoyed a Thomas Newman score over the past decade will find something to their liking in Victoria & Abdul. Whether it's the sentimental string writing of something like Saving Mr. Banks, or the Indian influences of something like The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, or something else entirely, there is a positive takeaway for everyone. I personally love this side of Newman's musical personality, and have always appreciated his penchant for unusual instrumental textures and sprightly, jagged rhythmic ideas. However, I can't help shake the nagging feeling that there will be a section of the film music world who will quickly dismiss this as little more than a rehash of ideas from dozens of other scores. In purely academic terms, of course, they're right. Newsflash: Thomas Newman writes score that sounds like Thomas Newman. But what Newman brings to the table is wholly unique to him, and for him to have maintained such a strong and identifiable voice in the increasingly homogenized and sanitized world of Hollywood film music is something that, in my opinion, should be celebrated, not criticized. Unlike the old queen herself, I was amused by Victoria & Abdul and – if the stars align – I could easily see it earning Newman his fifteenth Oscar nomination. (Jonathan Broxton auf
