Ennio Morricone: Who Saw Her Die?

Ennio Morricone: The Bird With the Crystal Plumage

The score maintains this blend of offbeat styles that still manage to operate as a cohesive whole, becoming tenser and more threatening. It makes perfect sense in a film about the unreliable nature of perception.
