9 Songs Reviews

One cannot entirely condemn Winterbottom, because the film is not without its meritorious moments, yet at the same time, 9 Songs doesn't effectively traverse the line of glorified pornography, so much as it narrowly scrapes past it.

It has the rough, penciled-in feel of a sketch, flurries of palpable physicality left along the path of a dissolving relationship

"9 Songs" is high-art pornography that doesn't neglect its compulsory gooey payoff scene.

Une %u0153uvre pour le moins inhabituelle qui, sans être un exercice de style complètement futile, n'est toutefois pas un film que l'on pourrait qualifier d'essentiel.

I like to think -- and please indulge me on this -- that my reaction to the controversial 9 Songs has more to do with the limitations of Michael Winterbottom's latest cinematic experiment than with any of my own nihilistic-horndog tendencies.

The most sexually explicit legit feature film to come out of 'merry ole' England from a mainstream director.

As satisfying viewing experiences go, the film comes up mighty short in terms of story, interesting characters and technical prowess, not to mention a 65-minute running time.

Seventy minutes of pneumatic sex without the trappings of characterization, plot or even attempted meaning can be a profoundly long time.

At least some skin flicks try to add a story to the sex.

There's not much to take away from 9 Songs unless you're watching it at home... alone... preferably with some lotion.

Nice folks, fun time, thanks for the peek (I guess), and so what?

Five decades after the rest of the world twigged to it, Michael Winterbottom has discovered a connection between sex and rock 'n' roll. Bully for him.

Given the graphic sex scenes, it is surprisingly dull. The music isn't great, either, now that we think about it.

It is, at its (hard)core, a traditional sex movie with better music and naturalistic situations.

Maybe the Nine Songs way -- showing us how they respond to each other in intimate moments and what sort of music moves them -- is a more direct route inside their heads.

A pointless and pretentious cocktail of sex, rock 'n' roll and glaciology.

In two words, 9 Songs is scenester porn.

When Kieran O'Brien and Margot Stilley have sex, it's clearly Michael Winterbottom sex.

August 27, 2005
Ultimately each move toward breaking a barrier or assaulting a taboo is undercut by a reliance on conformity and convention.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 26, 2005
An expertly blended mix of live music and real sex.
