What films have a lot of electric guitar in the soundtrack? Doesn't have to be with actual songs. I'm looking for flicks that use guitar to create different moods for scenes.

The Cronenberg film Crash has some very prominent guitar parts, score by Howard Shore.

Mattias Eklundh talks about it here:

track list and player credits from the OST:

I seem to remember some pretty gnarly guitar parts amid the synth stuff in the sound track for Jodorowsky's Dune, soundtrack by Kurt Stenzel.


Didn't Mark Knopfler do the soundtrack to something, Local Hero, maybe?

Pat Metheny has a done a few as well (Map of the World, Falcon and the Snowman Passaggio per il Paradiso) as has Ralph Towner (Un'altra vita...acoustic however)

Lyle Workman has done many (Superbad etc) and is a really underrated player.

Dead Man for sure
Yes. The movie isn't everyone's cup of tea, and some people don't care for the guitar either, but I can't think of anything that better fits the OP's description.

Also, there's all those Clapton licks on the Lethal Weapon soundtrack.
