So so music
19 June 2006 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I recently saw Americanese at South By Southwest Film Festival and was a little disappointed. The acting is great, but the overall mood is just a little on the cheesy side. The music is a big problem. It's very "mood" heavy and a little ball-less. Kind of a Philip Glass mysteriousness but without any real substance. The effect was that I thought I was watching a soft core porn on Cinemax or something. Charlotte Sometimes, which I loved, had really great music by interesting artists. But the score for Americanese sounds like someone just improvised on an expensive synthesizer. I hope the soundtrack changes.
