2008 proves a busy year for Zorn and film, with this, his third release of soundtrack music. FilmWorks XXI contains two very different film scores for two very different movies—one, a bit of French S/M erotica and the other a documentary about the renovation of the world-famed Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. From baroque minimalism to a sensual fusion of harp, guitar and bass, the cues on FilmWorks XXI are some of the most unique and charming in the entire series, with Belle de Nature being one of Zorn's greatest scores to date.
