I have no words for this soundtrack. More importantly, the praise goes to Dario. He has done two amazing soundtracks in the last year now that I think should get high amounts of praise.
Just last year, he completed the score for Pride and Prejudice. I think the movie was so/so but the soundtrack was beautiful.
But with V for Vendetta, I did not know he could get this dark! I think just by listening to this you can just invision parts of the movie. If you have not seen the movie, you can feel by the music how the character is feeling. The power of the tyranical goverment, the letter by Valerie, and most importantly, the climatic finish ending with "1812" Overture.
The two songs that I want to point out, "Cry Me a River" and "I Found a Reason" are played on V's jukebox at the begining and the end of the movie. They are so beautiful, one of the reasons I also bought the soundtrack. I am a fan of slow jazz music from the 40's, so hearing Cry Me a River being played... Wow.
If you are a fan of Dario Marianelli (Pride and Prejudice) and if you liked V for Vendetta (or if you didn't) the music is still amazing. Get it.
