    The soundtrack to director Anthony Minghella's adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's novel is as unpredictable and (occasionally) disturbing as the film itself. Roughly half of it is an original score by composer Gabriel Yared, which ranges from Stravinsky-esque orchestral neo-classicism to a sinister music box tune sung by Sinnead O'Connor. Oldies include vintage cuts by bop-meisters Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, as well as new performances of bop standards by Brit jazzman Guy Barker (his rendition of "Moanin," the Jazz Messengers' '50s hit is particularly good). Meanwhile, avant-folkie John Martyn turns "You Don't Know What Love Is" into the darkest of blues dirges, and RIPLEY star Matt Damon wins the Chet Baker soundalike contest with his thoroughly credible rendition of "My Funny Valentine."

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (1/7/00, pp.65-6) - "...the rare soundtrack that both complements the movie and captures its mood on CD....RIPLEY's music oozes the bland elegance of an upscale shopping mall....the music nicely matches the Italian vistas and cool Vespas..." - Rating: B
