I remember seeing this movie in the theater and really liking it. Well, it was on cable the other day and I saw it for the first time since seeing it in the theater. I really did like it more now then I did then. One of the things that stuck out to me was the score by Ennio Morricone. I never bought the soundtrack so I'm not sure how much music is on it. Anyone know if an expanded soundtrack is available or should I just stick with buying the original CD Soundtrack. I really do like the score to this film

I remember the album being pretty comprehensive. Although, I vividly remember one short transition cue not on the album that I wished was on the album. That aside, it's a solid album and probably doesn't warrant an expansion.

This is the Morricone score I like best and play most, the original album is a must as it covers a lot of music and all the themes (60 minutes worth). I would like an expanded soundtrack too, not only to get the end titles but there are cues left off as well as differently mixed (or different takes) in the movie. But I doubt that it'll get expanded anytime soon.

The original album will not disappoint, go get it! smile

The existing album is about an hour long, FYI.

WOW! Thanks! Now I have to get it. 60 minutes is a lot. The film I think was about 1 hour 40 minutes or so. Thanks!

It's been mentioned before but the film's end credits music is not on the album.

I think the first half of the music is but not the second half and that's the finale to Morricone's score...

The first piece in the end credits suite is "The Barn," an amazing love theme that transitions in the film to the synthesizer arpeggiation that is also found in his score for Disclosure.

Yes, and THIS is the cue (starting at 1:53) I've been whining about for years, one of Il Maestro's most powerful and haunting cues ever, and it's not on the freakin' 60-minute soundtrack!!!!

Wow, the score to WOLF is fantastic, I have always very much enjoyed it. However, I've seen the movie only once, many years ago. I had no idea there was this wonderful cue missing from the album, which is actually well rounded as it is. I sure don't know why they let this cue not make the album cut and would buy an expanded WOLF just for that.

Morricone's fawning blurb in the booklet of this CD always made me laugh. I don't have it to hand, however something along the lines," Mike has made a film of huge significance and importance to the film industry". Not likely...

Good score, though.

Hey, it spawned a Seinfeld spoof! wink

I actually think the movie is excellent, only in the final act does it go overboard and lose me, but the Nicholson/Pfeiffer scenes are brilliant, as is James Spader's role. It's a movie I like to revisit and the Morricone score still is my favorite of his, I'd like to see it revisited as well.

Agree with Francis. Has to have a big fight scene, but before that it's actually a really entertaining and surprisingly funny (not surprising for Nichols and May, but surprising because of the subject matter).
