    BORING. To address Laura's point, I think the critics DID understand that, but a good filmmaker would've done it better, and had a story to go with it. It's just tedious. There is no plot here. They go to the club, they have sex. Repeat over and over for 69 minutes. The sex scenes won't offend you, just put you to sleep. I gave it a 1 for the live music.

    This film is a vile, nausiating and contrived piece of trash ever translated to celluloid. It is void of character development, decent screenplay and acting. This seems to be nothing but a copy of 'Intimacy' another poor British effort. They both appear to be testing the limits of how much errect penis and penetration you are now allowed to show at the local cinema! This film This film is a vile, nausiating and contrived piece of trash ever translated to celluloid. It is void of character development, decent screenplay and acting. This seems to be nothing but a copy of 'Intimacy' another poor British effort. They both appear to be testing the limits of how much errect penis and penetration you are now allowed to show at the local cinema! This film comes in at 67 minutes. I mean if you are trying to make a serious film about character development and hoping for an audience empathy with the characters this is no where enough time. Also parts if this film are filled with live scenes from the Brixton Accademy. Why? What relevance does this have to a film about character development and relationships? Nothing, the films only objective is to make money for the bands featured and the controversy caused by the explicit and grim sex scenes. This films predictable screenplay can be described very simply. 1. Rock gig 2. Sex 3. Arguement....and repeat until all bands have been exhausted. A load of utter tripe that I had to endure for my film studies course and I left feeling nausous and wondering why it was ever made. Expand

  1. Yet for all its ballyhooed candor about sexual matters, it's a surprisingly baffling and opaque film, too artistic to be standard pornography and too zealously focused on being graphic to the exclusion of all else to succeed as drama.

    9 Songs could have been "Last Rock Show in London." Unfortunately, it's stupefyingly dull, even with good music and at the short but resonant length of 69 minutes.
  3. Never did sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll seem more shopworn and routine.
