These aren’t necessarily my favourite films (some of them are, but there are some here that I actively loathe) but they are some of my favourite soundtracks. I’ve listened to all* of these independently of the films for which they were composed or compiled.
(*excepting Christopher Spelman’s score for James Gray’s The Immigrant, which as far as I am aware has never been issued, since – thanks to the typically execrable machinations of The Weinstein Company – the film itself was never given a proper theatrical release in English-speaking territories; I was lucky enough to see it in Belgium.)
This slideshow is a work in progress; as time goes by, I aim to add more films to the list, and possibly also eventually to provide links. You can already, for example, find samples from a couple of the lesser known soundtracks on my YouTube video page.
