@Vunessuh Requiem for a Dream has one of my favorite soundtracks EVER. :)

I’m also a sucker for anything by Danny Elfman. And I love me some Bernard Herrmann.

The Clockwork Orange sound track is a classic and still one of my favorites. It it’s a pretty interesting mix. And even though I’m not a believer I have always like the opening from Trip to Bountiful There are so many great songs from the movies.
