Buy it... if you want to fall asleep to a very pleasant, low key score with simple string and piano themes and nary a troublesome moment.

Avoid it... if you'd rather not be whisked away into your own dream world while hearing a conservative score that represents someone doing exactly that.

Passion of Mind: (Randy Edelman) The premise of Passion of Mind is intriguing for the kind of people who like to sit around and discuss the philosophy of a real life versus a dream life. In the film, Demi Moore spends nearly every moment on screen, playing two roles and never knowing which is her real life and which is her dream life. In New York, she is a strong-minded publisher in a troubled relationship, and in France, she is a less secure, single mother who is engaged in a passionate relationship. The film counts on the plot's ability to lure you with a desire to sort out which is reality and which is fiction, and while that curiosity remains, the path that the film takes to answer the question is one that put many viewers to sleep. One reviewer called the film "a pointless exercise in existential hogwash," and if you're not a fan of seeing Moore on screen (or the tabloids of the era), then be prepared for a nap halfway through. Director Alain Berliner decided to accentuate the passion in the story by seeking a composer who could expand upon that contemporary romance with a strong reliance on melody. With these parameters in mind, nobody could argue with the choice of Randy Edelman, who was known industry wide as the go-to composer for pleasant melodies. Of the four films for which he composed in 2000, Passion of Mind is perhaps the closest to his song-writing heart, offering Edelman the opportunity to write a consistently lyrical score from start to finish. The big question regarding Passion of Mind, however, was how to address the strict duality of the film, and whether or not the score should exist in one united style or in two different modes suitable for the contrasting locations. Edelman makes a note of stating that he was given great liberty by the producers of the film to follow whatever path he wanted the music to take. What he decided to do was, as he says, "not fall into the trap of trying to delineate" the two different lives. By taking this route, he hoped to avoid alerting the audience to the reality of one life over the other.
