    Cool A Movie Every Classical Music Lover MUST see

    Ironweed.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093277/

    May not be everyone's cup of tea, but what a grossly underrated - neglected almost - gem of a film with a subtle use of the classical music in it.

    A star-powered cast, and look, there's even Tom Waits in there!

    Wanted to recommend this for years, and myself must rewatch it asap.

    Your turn!

    For both the great "new" music and the film experiences, I can't recommend enough the two latest Paul Thomas Anderson's movies: There Will Be Blood and The Master featuring scores by Jonny Greenwood. Enjoy!

    Loved both, Serge! As big fan of Radiohead that I am, I was curious and I found both are really good movies. There Will Be Blood specially, best movie of 2007 and one of my favorites ever.

    Yes, both such a stunningly beautiful movies with the great music being such an organic part of them! And also among my all time favorites.

    Shutter Island is an immensely rich movie experience both visually as well as auditory. An unforgettable story too, with top-notch acting from a stellar cast. One of my all time favorites. Highly recommended!

    How about Klaus Kinski's "Paganini".
