Director Terrence Malick seems to have an unusual way of working with music and composers for his films. Rather than punctuating the action, as many film scores do, music for Malick's films operate on a larger, grander scale, overlaying, underlying, and surrounding the story with mood and emotion. Host David Garland presents scores from four of Malick's films, including the newest, The Tree of Life.
Hans Zimmer - The Thin Red Line - Light - RCA
Ennio Morricone - Days of Heaven - Harvest, Days of Heaven - Pacific Arts
Alexandre Desplat - The Tree of Life - Circles, Light & Darkness - Lakeshore
James Horner - The New World - The New World, Of the Forest - New Line
