I watched this film a few years ago and as much as I found the movie really moving and evocative it was the soundtrack that stayed with me. The music is so elegantly constructed and the tracks by Sting are particularly beautiful, capturing the feelings of hopelessness and despair that are portrayed by the actors. I would recommend this album to anyone who is a fan of anyone from Portishead to Bowie, especially if you are in the mood for contemplation or seduction.

Next time you watch the movie, try to imagine it without the music. It's impossible. The music makes the film whereas the stunning tracks and haunting vocals can exist as much on their own as they do an accompaniment to an enchanting film. In other words...BUY IT!! I promise you won't regret it.

An excellent, listenable jazz soundtrack album which stands alone in its own right. This is one of the few OSTs which includes audio clips from the movie for something other than gimmick value. One note of caution - a stand-out track from the movie entitled "Lonely Teardrops" by Michael MacDonald is not included (perhaps for copyright reasons, since it is a (reasonably faithful) cover of a Jackie Wilson track), which may disappoint. I am told this is on an album entitled "Live At The Beacon" but, at the time of writing, I think it is not available in the UK.

If you've watched the movie you must have been moved by the soundtrack and this is great to listen to on its own. It brings back images and feelings especially of Cage's great performance. Does not disappoint.

I know this film and its soundtrack is to be listened and seen when you're in the mood for "just wondering around".

I specially appreciate the lyrics and the way they wrap up the feeling of the film.

Most of the musics depict a scene in the film, driving you to the exact scene... liked it ;)

I enjoyed the film although got annoyed with Nick Cage`s lifestyle decision - but that was the emotional point of the film and his choice. Fantastic acting too. Anyway, the CD takes you back into the film which I enjoy, not least because it reminds me of how great a film it is. And for a chilled night at home with friends, it is a great background soundtrack. If you loved the film, you will love the CD.

I rarely buy sound track music, but this is really a worthwhile exception. No regrets. Can recommend it to anyone who saw the film and liked it.
