In 2003, he won an Academy Award for his score to Frida. In 2006, he was named a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his original three-act opera Grendel, which premiered at the Los Angeles Opera. And July 1, he makes his return to the big screen with a score for Michael Mann's Public Enemies. Goldenthal spoke to TIME about the compositional challenges he faced in scoring the life of famed gangster John Dillinger (played by Johnny Depp) and the complexities of composing for various media simultaneously.
