And no, I'm not just being a smartass. Far too often movies just have music for the sake of having music, and it doesn't actually accomplish anything. This film has all of the music it needs.

By a significant margin. No other movie blends music, story and image so intimately and powerfully - and Preisner's score scours the soul forebver more.

And the movie is simply the best ever made, so that doesn't hurt.

Others worth a mention:

The Double Life of Veronique
Koyaaniqatsi
Once Upon a Time in the West
The Sea Hawk
