Alexandre Desplat

Alexandre Desplat has been sinking his teeth into anything he can get a hold of recently, scoring films as diverse as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows(2010/11) to Moonrise Kingdom (2012). In fact, this guy deserves to be on this sacred list just for having a crack at nearly every film genre there is. Apparently a lot of the themes he wrote for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) are musical palindromes, in the sense that they play the same backwards. If you’re planning on having a steamy affair with a government official in Asia, the track above is the one for you.
