It is very good film and I agree that Zimmer's score is a second main character. I'd even say that Zimmer's score is DeNiro's conscience, in some way Zimmer comments by his music DeNiro's choices which he makes and also in some way is his 'lawyer' . Just listen to "Fan Poem" - a truly fine poem that is commented by emotional music by Zimmer. And I agree that it ranks at least in Top-10 of Zimmer's scores. A pity that rewiever haven't noticed its advantages.

P.S. Does anyone know who wrote the "Fan Poem"?
