A story in 14 tracks?

Listened to the soundtrack for The Hours today, by Philip Glass. I haven’t actually seen the movie, but I thought it was interesting how the titles of the different tracks provide a surprisingly detailed and intriguing account of how the film is put together. The titles themselves tell a story. (And the music just makes them all the more captivating.)
