A Defense of Hans Zimmer!

You see, it's not his fault that the "score" to Inception is so atrocious.

It's that damn Edith Piaf (=Marion Cotillard=Mal!!!) whose song “Non, je ne Regrette Rien” sounds even worse when dramatically slowed down.

Now, my question is: how much did ole Hans get paid to to sludge up a Piaf song and turn the volume up to 11? At least six figures right?

(I like that the video is cut in half. It makes unraveling the meanings really challenging, like Inception! The NYT piece on the subject is here.)
