Re: 9 Songs : yeah, well, it was yer highbrow smut film, no doubt about it. The acting wasn't good, there was little plot, but I expected it to basically be a kind of poem about the joys of the flesh, and it was. The people were lovely to watch, and I liked how cheerful and realistic it was. I did actually think there'd be a bit more plot, but it seemed somehow typical that a guy would remember his relationship with someone pretty much just as sex, lots and lots of good sex, with some concerts thrown in for good measure.
Note of How Out of It I Am:
Band (identified via projection as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club): "Here's a song you'll all recognize."
Me (turning to shadowdaddy): But honey, I've never heard it before ...
It was very nice to get to hear some Michael Nyman in the film, though. So ... I'd say maybe worth a rental, but basically you'll either see it because you want to see what's in it as there's no point bothering watching it because you want to see a really good movie.
