I think O Brother, Where Art Thou is just dandy; not sure how I’d decide which is the best one ever.

I really hate to say this, but I have enjoyed the sountracks from the Twilight movies. I don’t really know how the songs fit in the movies, but the songs themselves are excellent.

- The Graduate—it’s practically a Simon & Garfunkel album.

I like the soundtrack for We Were Soldiers a whole lot. And also from Forrest Gump. There is a huge range of well-known songs from multiple decades, plus an excellently written score.

Ever is a lofty claim.However all I can say is Kill Bill’s soundtrack absolutely deserves a mention.

I love the soundtrack for “The Commitments” and it has brought me an interest in soul music. This is one of my favorite songs

(Anyone notice that the greatest sound tracks are comprised of late 60’s and 70’s music! HA! You kids MISSED the greatest decades of all time for music!!!)

There was a movie a number of years ago entitled Country starring Jessica Lange, Sam Shepherd and Wilford Brimley about a family trying to save their farm. The soundtrack is magical and haunting.

Perhaps you can start here:

As for my top “10” (in no particular order):
– River’s Edge (1986)
– Conan The Barbarian (1982)
– The Truman Show (1998)
– Repo Man (1984)
– Apocalypse Now (1979)
– Donnie Darko (2001)
– Pulp Fiction (1994),
– Withnail and I (1987)
– American Psycho (2000)
– A Clockwork Orange (1971)
– 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

A few people have already mentioned Garden State (2004). Very good stuff too that.

Good Luck!
