Klute [Original Soundtrack Score]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Ankeny
Michael Small's score to the 1971 Alan J. Pakula drama Klute remains one of the great lost soundtracks in American film. A proposed Warner Bros.

The music is liberating but claustrophobic, perfectly capturing the tenor of its times.
