14. Gosford Park
Ever the perfectionist, Patrick Doyle has often commented that it can take him up to six months to write a film score. Such a large amount of time was not a luxury afforded to Doyle when it came to Gosford Park, a mystery comedy-drama set in the British Countryside. In fact director Robert Altman asked Patrick Doyle to write and compose the music for Gosford Park in less than five weeks! Doyle certainly rose to the occasion, creating a delightful understated score that received a great deal of praise even when the film itself was not received so well. Doyle described the collaboration with Altman as "one of the happiest of my career."
