Exit to Eden [Original Score] Review

by Jason Ankeny

Patrick Doyle's Exit to Eden is little more than a hodgepodge of half-baked ideas executed poorly -- but then, would you expect anything more from a score that accompanies a film willing to pour Rosie O'Donnell into bondage gear? Doyle throws a lot of stuff at the wall here, precious little of which sticks -- "Careless Love" indulges his jazz sensibilities, "The Arrival" summons the pomp and circumstance of pageantry music, and a recurring chase theme snakes its way in and out of the narrative, all of it seemingly derived from wildly different movies. Still, even Bernard freakin' Herrmann at the absolute zenith of his creativity couldn't save a soundtrack with that cover. Look away! Look away!
