There are other examples of films where the screenplay and the soundtrack are the products of one creator, starting with Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times and City Lights, but it's relatively rare for the writer of a film to compose the score. When that is the case, as with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, who wrote the music for the Australian western The Proposition (2005), for which Cave wrote the screenplay, the result is a high degree of dramatic and musical unity. Both the film and the score are lean, dirty, dark, and evocative. For the most part, the soundtrack foregoes the use of the human voice, with dabs of acoustic guitar, piano, violin, and percussion barely filling the spare textures. Though little of this music could stand alone, except for the final track, it is tremendously effective in context, adding layers of emotional and psychological meaning to the action of the movie. On the strength of this collaboration, Cave and Ellis (both previously better known for their work in the band, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds), were hired to write the music for the 2007 American western The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. While their music for that film is likewise effective, the aesthetic unity of the score and film they created together is truly amazing.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.

WES SIDE STORIES: The best musical moments in Wes Anderson’s films

Anderson's films can be polarizing: Charming or cloying, depending on your point of view. But if you're a fan, you no doubt appreciate the director's (and frequent collaborator, music supervisor Randall Poster's) obvious love of music—some of it as well known as Paul Simon or the frequently used Rolling Stones; some of it if-you-know-you-know cult classics.
