When Zach Braff, the writer, producer, director, and star of Garden State, was ten, he was diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder. Fortunately for him, he had complete control of his soundtrack, and in picking songs that influenced him while he wrote the screenplay, he compiled a collection that perfectly complimented the awkward, self-conscious, romance chipped away at in the film. Mostly indie rock from today and yesteryear—The Shins, Simon & Garfunkel—the soundtrack was so good, Braff picked up a Grammy for it in 2005. Was the movie and album good enough to change people's perception of NJ? Sadly, no.
