Iglesias has composed a number of scores from films directed by Pedro Almodóvar, such as The Flower of My Secret (1995), Live Flesh (1997), All About My Mother (1999), Talk to Her (2002), Bad Education (2004) and Volver (2006).

In addition, Iglesias also scored the music for the 2001 film, Sex and Lucia (2001), directed by Julio Medem. He has also scored the music for Oliver Stone's documentary, Comandante (2003).

Iglesias garnered his first Oscar nomination for his score in Fernando Meirelles's film adaptation of The Constant Gardener (2005). Iglesias also composed the score for The Kite Runner (2007), based on Khaled Hosseini's 2003 novel of the same name. He earned his second Oscar nomination for that score.

In 2008, Iglesias composed Steven Soderbergh's 2008 two part biopic, Che (2008), starring Benecio Del Toro as Che Guevara. The next year, Iglesias continued to collaborate with Almodóvar with Broken Embraces (2009), starring Penelope Cruz.

In 2011, Iglesias reunited with Almodóvar with The Skin I Live In. That same year, Iglesias composed the music for Tomas Alfredson's film adaptation of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, starring Gary Oldman as George Smiley. Iglesias told the Los Angeles Times, "(Alfredson) explained to me very well what this film is about. It's a film about loyalties and human relationships. Their spies are victims of this moment. That was the most important thing he told me. The film and the music show the more human side." He received his third Oscar nomination for the latter film.

Personal life

Iglesias was the brother-in-law of the late Spanish sculptor, Juan Muñoz.
