DVD Bonus For a movie rather unusual done exactly afterwards GLADIATOR and BLACK HAWK DOWN in the career of Ridley SCOTT it marks a certain contrast with this story more intimate of a crook full of weird acts interpreted by Nicolas CAGE Warner saves us from various editions (collectors supra collectors and other deluxe editions) to offer a nice product full of supplements. The simplest is the best....

Geoff Zanelli's Secret Window
Philipp Glass was hired to score Secret Window to replace James Newton-Howard (and Hans Zimmer planned to work with him) and the story seemed to have reached its end. Not really. Behind Philipp Glass was Geoff Zanelli who composed a lot of extra music in two weeks. Heres is what can be said about this by Zanelli:
They moved the schedule up by about six weeks which made it difficult for one man to finish the score so I was asked to help. The credits will read "Music by Philip Glass" "Additional Music By Geoff Zanelli." I wrote a little more than half of the score but I haven't heard what Philip wrote yet. I guess I'll hear it in the theater... So instead of Zimmer/Newton-Howard you get Glass/Zanelli scoring Secret Window. It will be pretty easy to tell what music I wrote for Secret Window and what music is Philip Glass. There isn't much overlap stylistically in what we each did. Both parts of the score are purely orchestra -- there is not a single synth and only a tiny bit of percussion.
