Buy it... if you enjoy engaging and intelligent suspense scores and/or Don Davis' typically strong instrumental creativity.

Avoid it... if you prefer your noir-ish scores to have a strong identity, or were hoping for the score to reflect more of the eroticism of the film.

Bound: (Don Davis) While the collaboration between composer Don Davis and filmmakers Larry and Andy Wachowski is highlighted by the trilogy of Matrix films, their start came two years earlier, in Bound. The Wachowski brothers were in their 20's, college dropouts from Chicago, making their first feature film. And Bound is exactly the kind of debut you'd expect the two to make. A mixture of genres, Bound takes themes from both the Cohen and Marx Brothers and slaps you in the face with a caper film that throws gangsters and lesbians into a slapstick environment and twists you half a dozen times until you feel as though you're part a crime syndicate yourself. It is certainly offensive to many audiences, with graphic violence and sexual undertones throughout, and if it doesn't offend your sensibilities, it could very well leave you puzzled. In the dangerous environment of organized crime, two neighboring lesbians carry on not only a sexual affair, but become involved in the increasing body counts as well. The film was met with a substantially positive critical response, though it flew largely under the radar in theatres because of its arthouse origins. Don Davis was equally anonymous to mainstream collectors in 1996, having composed mostly television episodes for Star Trek and SeaQuest. He paid his bills by serving as a regular orchestrator for both James Horner and Jerry Goldsmith (his credits includes projects as successful as Titanic and Air Force One), among others. But his compositional skills would lead him down a more unconventional path than such mainstream scores would suggest, with Davis' output often resulting in interesting, though difficult scores. Indeed, many of the challenging aspects of the Matrix scores would be foreshadowed in Bound, from a technical point of view. On its own, though, Davis' score for Bound fails to really establish itself with a clear identity in the film or on album.
