It shouldn't really be all that radical to depict sex between people who at least seem to be into each other and getting it on the way average folks do, but it's rare enough that 9 Songs stands out. This low-budget, low-light movie is literally nothing more than sex and rock and roll, with a few scenes of drugs to complete the triumvirate. Matt (Kieran O'Brien) and Lisa (Margo Stilley) have sex several times, and between each sex scene, there's a live concert performance, usually at London's Brixton Academy, and featuring bands like Primal Scream and Franz Ferdinand. That's all that happens, pretty much. Matt's remembering the whole thing as he flies over Antarctica; he's a glaciologist, which, one imagines, is supposed to provide an ironic counterpoint to the hot horizontal action. This movie is, essentially, porn, and whether it's a turn-on is likely to be subjective to each viewer. Those who find traditional porn too artificial should be pleased.
