Best Movie Soundtracks -1990s
Vladimir Nabokov’s controversial story of an older man’s infatuation with a 12-year-old girl continues to fascinate cinema-goers, but Adrian Lyne’s 1997 film, starring Jeremy Irons as Humbert Humbert was still controversial, although largely with those who didn’t think Kubrick’s 60s film could be better. The soundtrack was far less controversial - scored by Italian composer Ennio Morricone who used his trademark mournful strings and choral elements to create an atmosphere of obsessive, claustrophobic longing.
