    (March 23, 1944- )
    Wrote music for the films 'The Draughtsman's Contract (1982),' 'Drowning by Numbers (1988),' 'The Cook The Thief His Wife & Her Lover (1989),' 'Prospero's Books (1991),' 'The Piano (1993),' 'Gattaca (1997)' and 'Ravenous (1999)'
    His minimalist music has been called cold, robotic and mechanical.
    He 'borrows' themes from other composers' works (sometimes without crediting them).
    His score for 'The Piano' was sappy and overplayed.
    He was paid by Mazda to write a concerto advertising their product.
    He is bald and wears large, silly glasses.
    Music critics dismiss him because he writes music for movies.
    He never wrote any music until he was in his thirties.
    He loves soccer and has written many compositions about it.
    His musical vision is unique.
