Michael Nyman – The Draughtsman's Contract

I loved the film. I'd never seen anything quite like it. And the music was so hypnotic, the way it really builds around one simple melody, just adding and adding and adding. It was the perfect soundtrack to that film. I've listened to the album many times. It's rare that a soundtrack perfectly reflects a film. A Clockwork Orange is another example – it's the perfect complement to what you're watching. It doesn't get in the way, but the film wouldn't have had the impact without it.
