Donnie Darko – Sanctuary

Previously only on import, this now gets a British release, because 80 per cent of the UK proletariat like singing along to: "And the dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had." Especially during festive periods. And fair play to them, eh readers? Apparently reprints of Camus and Kafka are now outselling beer, and Lou Reed's "Berlin" is widely tipped for next year's Christmas No 1. A mad world, and no mistake. Michael Andrews' soundtrack is chiefly instrumental, dark and wilfully weird.

I’d advise you to get the genuinely good Gary Jules album instead (the guy sings with gorgeous melancholy) if I didn’t think it would be a betrayal of this page.
