The PIGEON TUNNEL is streaming on Apple+ TV
Academy Award-winning documentarian Errol Morris pulls back the curtain on the storied life and career of former British spy David Cornwell — better known as John le Carré, author of such classic espionage novels as The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and The Constant Gardener. Set against the turbulent backdrop of the Cold War leading into present day, the film spans six decades as le Carré delivers his final and most candid interview, punctuated with rare archival footage and dramatized vignettes. “The Pigeon Tunnel” is a deeply human and engaging exploration of le Carré’s extraordinary journey and the paper-thin membrane between fact and fiction.
Paul Leonard-Morgan’s unique cinematic style of fusing orchestra with electronica has put him in high demand as a film composer, a producer / arranger for bands, and most recently taking the concert / classical world by storm. It has led him to win a BAFTA award, and receive Emmy & Ivor Novello nominations.
Prior to working in film, Leonard-Morgan produced and arranged for acts including Belle and Sebastian, Snow Patrol, Mogwai, and No Doubt. However, it was his groundbreaking score for Relativity’s “Limitless,” a paranoia-fueled action thriller starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, that solidified him as a major player in the film music industry and was later nominated for the prestigious World Soundtrack “Discovery of the Year” Award in Ghent. His first Emmy nomination came in 2016 for the CBS TV spinoff of Limitless, helmed by Marc Webb (Spiderman, 500 Days of Summer).
Dredd, which topped the U.K. box office in its first week of its 2012 release, is widely recognized as launching a new generation of hybrid scores, causing Variety to note the impact of “the throbbing sounds of Paul Leonard-Morgan’s bass heavy score”.
In 2015, he completed a commission from the National Theatre to score new adaptations of James I (which premiered at the Edinburgh International Festival, before taking residence for a sold-out run at the Olivier Theater in London) and James II (composed alongside the music of Scottish electro duo Boards of Canada).
