In a location adjacent to a place in a city of some significance, what comes out of my head is plastered on the walls of this blog.

Paparazzi (Brian Tyler)

Hot action star Bo Laramie (Cole Hauser) finds himself targeted by a group of scummy paparazzi (because Lord knows there aren't other, bigger movie stars that they could be harassing). What happens when a decent man is pushed too far (and that, for all the world, could be a tagline for one of Laramie's movies)?

Less a movie than a rant on behalf of Hollywood stars who hate having their privacy invaded...and it's an absolute blast. Guilty pleasures don't come much guiltier.

Brian Tyler wrote a lively score for the film, its highlights including a creepy buzzing motif for the paparazzi and a rising 'realization' motif for Dennis Farina's Detective Burton.

(Okay, I admit this is something of a cheat since the score was released, but, a long time ago at FSM's message board, there was a thread that invited posters to create new track listings for existing soundtracks. I channeled my inner Michael Giacchino - only to find that he had an inner freak - and this is what I came up with for this.)
