Buy it... if you typically avoid Gabriel Yared's melancholy music for dramatic tragedies, because this score (along with Message in a Bottle) has a warmth and lyricism that transcends the film's many ills.

Avoid it... if you expect the chilly and detached character of Yared's more popular works for The English Patient and The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Yared
Autumn in New York: (Gabriel Yared) Everything about Autumn in New York beckons a few drops of tears, from its story to its production failures, its music to its ultimate dysfunction. The story itself is a tear-jerker of the highest order. Winona Ryder's career had been stifled by unrealized potential (and eventually problems with the law), while Richard Gere's career was threatening to be defined by egotistical relationships with women half his age. Together, they made a disastrously awkward screen couple. The studio used the fear of spoilers released by critics to withhold early screenings, recognizing more likely that the product was awful. Actress-turned-director Joan Chen could not translate her success of Xiu Xiu into Hollywood terms. The script never wraps up key loose ends despite its predictability. And then there's the musical score by Gabriel Yared, which is so tragic itself that it could be an elegy for the entire production rather than an accompaniment to the actual story on screen. After his Academy Award win for The English Patient, the European composer had been typecast as the master of burdensome dramatic lament. Between Message in a Bottle, City of Angels, and The Talented Mr. Ripley, Yared tackled one tragic mainstream assignment after another, which is partly why his controversial involvement with Troy in 2004 was so interesting (even before he was fired). The disaster of Autumn in New York came at the end of this string of mainstream dramas (the Golden Globe and Oscar-nominated Cold Mountain in 2003 really didn't fit into the same mould), and it is undoubtedly the most solemn and bittersweet of the lot. Ironically, however, it gives Message in a Bottle a run for its money in terms of being a listenable product apart from the film, for Autumn in New York has a more well-rounded personality than some of the opaque entries in the series. Yared's packaging of sadness and beauty for Autumn in New York follows the same template he applied to the previous works, but his execution is more sophisticated here. Its melancholy spirit contains a warmth that is often absent from Yared's other dramatic tragedies. That, and a thematic heart, makes for a winner.
