Ridley Scott's Musical Vision

« previous episode | next episode »

Director Ridley Scott has made some unforgettable films. His latest, "Prometheus" (opening June 8), is a prequel to one of his earliest, "Alien." Between those two visionary science fiction films Scott created an interesting array of movies, including "Gladiator," "Black Hawk Down," "Thelma & Louise," "Legend," and "Blade Runner."

Scott seems to like to have his powerfully visual films scored with powerful music, and has formed a few multi-film director/composer partnerships with composers such as Hans Zimmer, and Marc Streitenfeld. David Garland presents musical highlights from all of the Ridley Scott movies mentioned above, and more.

No Kingdom of Heaven soundtrack cuts? Strange.
