As a composer of filmmusic Goldenthal has worked with famous directors such as Gus Van Sant, Michael Mann, David Fincher, Julie Taymor and Neil Jordan. He has composed music for films such as Interview with A Vampire, Michael Collins, Batman Forever, Batman and Robin, A Time to Kill,Frida, Sphere, Alien 3, Titus and Public Enemies.
