If you don't expect me to distinguish between scores that were
specifically composed for a movie and music that was already existing
and became used for a movie, here's a random sample of my favorites from
the top of my head (in no order):
"Sunset Boulevard" (Billy Wilder)
"The Double Life of Veronique" (Kieslowski)
"The Last Temptation of Christ" (Scorsese)
"Koyaanisqatsi" (music by Philip Glass)
"Frida" (Julie Taymor)
"Radio Days" (Woody Allen)
"Hable con ella" (sorry I am not sure about the English title right now,
but it's the Almodóvar movie with the music by Iglesias)
"A Draughtman's Contract" (Greenaway, music by Michael Nyman)
"Hero" (the movie by Zhang Yimou with the music by Tan Dun)
"In the Mood for Love" (Wong Kar-wai; one of the best scores I know)
