Knopfler's Finest Film Score!
J. Winokur | Denver, CO USA | 07/16/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"In addition to adeptly supporting this interesting but difficult film ,this score stands by itself as exquisite, always interesting music. It is for me the most enduringly appealing soundtrack I have heard. The main themes begin very simply, as Knopfler's Dire Straits rock songs often are. But here, in a mostly lush orchestral setting, each theme evolves into a far more complex sequence, with wonderful leitmotifs throughout. Instrumentation from contrasting idioms are joined here seamlessly. More than any of his other work, this score reflects Mark Knopfler's formal academic musical training -- likely a surprise for listeners who only know him as a fine rock composer and quitarist with Dire Straits. The production and sound quality is excellent. (My 2nd choice for most beautiful film score ever would be Cinema Paradiso. Knopfler's Local Hero ranks high as well.)"
1989's best soundtrack album... a good movie too.

"I like all about this record too.Once again a very good soundtrack album, whith very brilliant songs whith smart lyrics like always, and always terrific guitarwork by M.K, and the others are also doing great. It fits the movie very well.. To get the right kind of slower ,calm music ,and faster more intensive music into the right scene, and situiations , in the movie. The brilliant timing. A little bit blues mostly rockmusic. and the pockets front side is looking a little bit like the movie "Welcome to Sarajevo". they can thank this album/film for that. goodbye../a CD-guy."
Haunting score for a disturbing film
Anne M. Storm | California | 11/09/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
"In the hands of a master, music comes to embody themes in films, and make connections between viewers and characters. This score does that job beautifully, and is exquisite, moody and achingly poignant. Mark Knopfler's music is always intelligent, understated and touches the emotions.
This must have been a difficult film to score -- horrifying, in a way, yet Knopfler does not succumb to the horror, nor nobilize it, he reaches the heights of empathy for the human condition. They're all victims.
This is a worthwhile listen."
