The Fisher King: Original Motion Picture by George Fenton

This is my tribute to the late Robin Williams. One of his more eccentric and maybe underrated roles and a soundtrack to match.

"Well, maybe Pinocchio's not a true story", like Jeff Bridges/Jack Lucas says in one of the scenes, but this is the fine soundtrack album for one of the finest movies of the 90s. It has it all: the original score by maestro George Fenton, the pop numbers from the era, some standards from the past and even some bits from the original dialogues! Also you can enjoy actors Williams and Jeters performing two tracks. If you loved the movie, you'll love the album and if you're a fan of Terry Gilliam's,..well, say no more!
