Mysterious Skin

I went to see Mysterious Skin tonight; it was really good. Somewhat harrowing in places, though given the subject matter, it'd have to be. Beautifully shot, though, and the soundtrack (by Robin Guthrie and Harold Budd, with songs by Slowdive, Curve and Sigur Rós) was sublime. I just ordered the CD.

I wonder whether there is any connection between the 3 Slowdive songs in the soundtrack and the fact that the other UFO contactee was named Avalyn.
