Monkeybone [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack] Review

by Heather Phares

The original soundtrack to Henry Selick's zany, whimsical Monkeybone features a score composed by Anne Dudley, who used to be one-third of the Art of Noise and also wrote music for The Full Monty and The 10th Kingdom soundtracks. Her work here is somewhat subdued considering the film's plot -- a cartoonist falls into a coma and travels to a dream world/purgatory where he confronts Monkeybone, his most popular creation, face to face -- but it's quirky and lively enough to work well as incidental music, though it's not entirely satisfying as a work in its own right.
