2013: 15 Best Film Scores
Even as frequent soundtrack-listeners, it's only at the end of the year when we come to take stock of the various scores that have passed through our ear canals over the previous twelve months that it's possible to get a measure of the state of composition for film. Which is to say that, having spent the last few days relistening to some of the major scores of 2013, it's been a fantastic year.

Requiem For A Dream Jennifer Connelly
While we patiently await Darren Aronofsky's epic "Noah," let's take a trip back in time to an era when the director was still an untested indie filmmaker. He had made waves with his low-budget, paranoid thriller "Pi," and raised the stakes for his sophomore effort, "Requiem For A Dream." The adaptation of the Hubert Selby Jr. novel was a grim look at addiction, earning an NC-17 rating for its tough content and graphic sex scene. But that couldn't stop the support for the film, which drew critical raves for its performances (earning Ellen Burstyn an Oscar nomination), Aronofsky's direction and the score by Clint Mansell, who at the time, was just working on his second film (his first was 'Pi'). And as he tells it, Aronofsky originally had a different vision for the soundtrack.

Perhaps other than Cliff Martinez, there are few modern film composers who have crossed over into recognition from the regular music world, quite like Clint Mansell. Creating iconic scores for all of Darren Aronofsky's films, along with "Moon," "Last Night" (one of his more underrated efforts) and this year's "Stoker," his work is distinctive and other unlike anything else out there. And he's continuing to spread his wings in interesting directions.

Clint Mansell turned 50 earlier this week, and it could be argued that he is the finest high-profile working composer yet to receive an Oscar nomination. That’s despite creating some truly stunning scores for the likes of “Requiem For A Dream,” “Black Swan,” “Moon” and “The Fountain.” The regular Darren Aronofsky collaborator will be teaming up with the director again on his forthcoming “Noah,” and now some details have surfaced on his other big upcoming project, Park Chan-wook’s “Stoker.”

Musician and composer Clint Mansell doesn't crank out film scores, but when he does, it's always worth paying attention. Even when it's for otherwise forgettable fare like "Faster" or unjustly ignored dramas like "Last Night" (one of the key pieces of which is being used in the trailers for Steven Soderbergh's "Side Effects"), it's worth tracking down. Distinctive and unique, while he may be best known for his work on Darren Aronofsky's films, his discography speaks for itself. And it looks 2013 is going to find us being treated to health dose of Mansell.

Considering composer Clint Mansell has worked with Darren Aronofsky on all of the director's films to date, it's not a big shock that they will be working together once again. But still, it's nice to get some confirmation, and indeed, during a masterclass at the Marrakech Film Festival (you can read all the highlights right here) Aronofsky confirmed that Mansell will be back for his Bible epic "Noah." But perhaps most revealing is Aronofsky's description of their working relationship.
