Based on a Jon Ronson book, The Men Who Stare at Goats is a globetrotting adventure about a man attempting to figure out who he is while investigating the United States' experiments to discover the military applications of new age concepts. As the film spends a lot of time in Kuwait, the score features a blend of drifting new age and Middle Eastern music, giving it a calming yet exotic quality that pairs beautifully with the film. For a movie that heavily features the military, the score is rather low-key, making for a more relaxing excursion than one would expect from a film set in a war zone. Whether you're looking for some soothing background music with an international flair or just want to revisit the strange story of the First Earth Battalion, The Men Who Stare at Goats' score has what you need.
