Grizzly-BearIn his liner notes, director Derek Cianfrance writes that he originally considered Smetana and Vangelis for the soundtrack to Blue Valentine. Finally, Grizzly Bear met his needs, and the needs of the entire cast, who often listened to Yellow House while filming to elicit a collective mood.
