You know. Stuff like Lost Highway, Amelie or Requiem For A Dream.

Do you mean original scores or soundtracks by assorted artists? There's a Best Score thread further down.

I saw Isabel Coixet's My Life Without Me yesterday and, as well as thinking it was one of the best films I had seen in a very long time, I also thought the soundtrack was excellent, especially Senza Fine by Gino Paoli (which was also used in the cinematic trailer).

The Magnolia soundtrack is great. Aimee Mann & two songs from Supertramp's 1979 album "Brekfast in America" (witch is an excellent album). Jon Brion who among other things did the "Magnolia" song 4 this album, has also produced Fiona Apple's 2nd album (and the upcoming third) "When the Pawn", witch I would recommend to anyone who likes the Magnolia album. The Harold and Maude (1971) soundtrack should be great if you like Cat Stevens. I haven't heard the soundtrack thow, but I dont think Cat Stevens could go wrong. Also Pulp Fiction; Rocky Horror & Hedwig and the angry inch -if you're into rock musicals; Yentl has great music: unless you hate Streisand; Frida & Talk to had also good soundtracks.

I couldn't agree more about the Magnolia and Harold & Maude soundtracks - both wonderful and in keeping with the moods of their films.

Yes Ihave the soundtrack of this turkey being a Grateful Dead fan,it is a shame as the music is excellent,pity about the film which gives old Hippies & Radicals a bad name.
Looks like Antonioni got "dosed" & lost his way in never ever land! Cheers

I love 'The English Patient' soundtrack. I love Cat Stevens so the 'Harold and Maude' soundtrack is great.

I want to get 'The Big Chill' soundtrack and 'Kramer v. Kramer' soundtrack. I enjoyed both movies.

Iliked the Soundtrack to Great Expectations, more than the movie itself. Also Amores Perros, with the urban chicano rap, techno music there. But it really depends on your preference. Anyway, i think soundtracks could be said to have worked for the film if they reinforce a film's scene, not take the limelight away from the scene. Some movies use great songs in their movies, to the point of overshadowing the scene. It kinda loses the purpose of using a soundtrack. Now, this song used in Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, Singing in the Rain, was used in a context that reinforces the scene. And that's the best way to use sountracks for me. I don't like that song per se, but you could say, "Hey that's a good soundtrack." You know what I mean?

Soundtrack to Trainspotting was excellent. Both are great.
