The soundtrack from The Graduate is very good

Gotta be the Forrest Gump soundtrack, covering a wide variety of genres from 50s rock n roll to 60s psychedelia to 70s AOR. Superb!

'1492-Conquest Of Paradise' by Vangelis.

I used to collect soundtracks and I still own some of the classics (Taxi Driver, Midnight Cowboy, Performance) but one soundtrack stands head and shoulders above the rest: Natural Born Killers. If you like soundtracks, you owe it to yourself to hear this one!

Natural Born Killers & the like are just a collection of appropriate song & tunes as such they always feel a bit of a cop out, as if the film maker couldn't be bothered! I think a score that is composed for the film (maybe with a few feature lifted songs/tunes) shows more creativity!

Either The Graduate or The Wicker Man.

Both utterly sublime.

Easily has to be Requiem For A Dream!

Once Upon a Time in the West - Ennio Morricone - no question!

Mr. C. Evans says:
It has to be Star Trek: The Motion Picture - beautiful, mysterious, haunting and exciting. Jerry Goldsmith at his best.

Other Goldsmith soundtracks coming close: First Blood, Alien, Planet of the Apes and Star Trek: First Contact.

If we're going with scores for a movie, then you've got to mention all of David Holmes' work with director Steve Soderbergh, starting with Out Of Sight, and going through all the lacklustre Oceans movies - Holmes' music was the real star. Even Analyze That is sprinkled with Holmes' trademark funkiness. The score for The Cooler is lovely as well, all old school Vegas Basie brass and after hours backroom jazz. Elsewhere for soundtracks, not scores, I love both Boogie Nights soundtracks, and CD's made for Swingers, Almost Famous, Dazed & Confused, and the brilliant Fight Club. & Let's not forget Mancini's Pink Panther!!

This is difficult to answer - but if I had to select only one - it must be Lawrence of Arabia by Maurice Jarre.
