Buy it... if a bleak environment of mostly subdued techno-erotic electronica is your idea of a good time.

Avoid it... if you require anything more than a cold and dark synthetic environment, devoid of personality or thematic and instrumental cohesion.

Isham
Isham
Body Shots: (Mark Isham) If anybody needed proof that Generation X dating in the 1990's was both complicated and unnerving, then Body Shots is that overwhelming evidence. Director Michael Cristofer approached the subject with bizarre visual and narrative effects, examining an alleged date rape from the perspective of eight attractive and hip men and women in their twenties who shared the same night. Shifts through time and the habit of having characters address the camera directly, along with graphic discussions about (and displays of) sex aimed this New Line Cinema project directly at an arthouse crowd, where it was met with indifference. It's a film that says a lot without making a statement, subjecting the audience to possibly the worst that society has to offer without any redeeming emotional element. For Body Shots, composer Mark Isham dabbles his feet in the seductive world of techno-erotic electronica, developing yet another branch of his vast library of genre talents. The score is as dark and troubled as the plot of the film, following the sexual crime with a heart so cold that you could really use it to explore questions about whether sex without love equates to violence. While the music is not outwardly disturbed in a frightening sense, it isn't a pleasant listening experience, and unless you're an enormous fan of electronica underscore, then Isham's introverted accompaniment to Body Shots will leave you equally cold. Within the context of the film's storyline, Isham's score captures enough of the dance beat environment and charged, cool movement to function successfully. It has none of the characteristics of a normal film score, with nothing to tie it together. A theme introduced by Isham himself on a seemingly distorted trumpet in "Two of Us Together" isn't reprised throughout the mass of the score, and its progressions are so understated that it may not even leave an impression in the two renditions of that one cue. The only other organic element in the score is a brief cello solo that aimlessly meanders in the background of "No Remembering." Otherwise, the score consists of only industrial electronic elements that harshly paint a bleak landscape devoid of emotional gravity.
