"The Secret Agent is a watershed score in Philip Glass' career in writing for film. Based on a novel by Joseph Conrad, Christopher Hampton's independent 1995 film exposes the confused motives that lie at the heart of political terrorism. Glass' score for the film is lushly romantic and expressionistic. Christopher Hampton, the film's director and screenwriter, is also known for his stage and screen versions of Dangerous Liaisons and more recently for his screenplay to the award-winning Atonement. Hampton and Glass also collaborated on librettos for Waiting for the Barbarians and Appomattox."
