    I so intensely detest this film, that its score’s main theme has become the soundtrack of preachiness for me. I understand it made it to the list, though.

    Excellent write up for an excellent score, regardless of one’s thoughts on the film and its now tragic fate amongst thousands of youtube “epic fantasy playlist” videos. Especially, “spotlighting the empty space around the margins of Mansell’s composition” is a really good and insightful clause, nailing exactly what it is about this score that just really can’t leave you and ultimately does the heavy work of nailing the emotional reality of a film that is, for all intents and purposes, pure drug-scare melodrama.
