Directed by Ridley Scott | 1986

With Tom Cruise,Tim Curry,Mia Sara,David Bennent,Alice Playten

Ridley Scott's years-in-the-making special-effects extravaganza transformed a huge soundstage into a living forest complete with foliage and wildlife: a hermetic and gorgeously photographed world of elves, fairies, and a demon known only as Darkness (Curry). Having hired Tangerine Dream only after the original Elizabethan-flavored score (by renowned composer Jerry Goldsmith) didn't test well with preview audiences, Scott seemed to still prefer the original and retained it for the film's European release (though both scores were released as soundtrack albums). Tangerine Dream's version was wholly different and more modern-which triggered an unusually public controversy-adding notes of wonder to the gorgeous slow-motion and special-effects sequences and an element of danger to a film that verged on being, in the director's own words, "too sweet." Starring a young Tom Cruise as the "forest child" hero Jack and Mia Sara (before playing Ferris Bueller's Sloane) as Princess Lily.
