The latest release from Intrada pairs two scores from films produced by the Disney studios that can be described by the oxymoron "light-hearted films about the Vietnam War" -- the hit GOOD MORNING, VIETNAM, which earned Robin Williams his first Oscar nomination, and featured one of the final scores by the incomparable Alex North; and an expanded version of David Newman's stirring music for 1995's OPERATION DUMBO DROP.


La-La Land has announced a new slate of soundtrack CD releases, including two multi-disc sets which may be Holy Grails for many film music fans.

In the mid-1960s, when widescreen epics included slapstick spectacles like It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World and Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines, Blake Edwards directed the period action farce THE GREAT RACE, starring Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, Natalie Wood, Peter Falk and Jack Lemmon (that is not a typo). Since it was a Blake Edwards film not made between 1971 and 1974, the score was composed by the incomparable Henry Mancini. As was common at the time, the original soundtrack LP was a re-recording with the selections (including the film's Oscar-nominated song "The Sweetheart Tree") chosen more for commercial reasons than to highlight the film's score cues, so collectors have begged for the original Great Race score tracks for decades. La-La Land's Great Race features 114 minutes of original score tracks on two discs with the 27 minute LP re-recording cues on Disc Three, and is expected to begin shipping next week.

The turn of the 21st century was a dispiriting time in which some of the coolest and most cinematic TV series of the 1960s -- The Avengers, I Spy, The Wild Wild West -- were turned into really lousy movies. Fortunately, one can still watch the original shows on home video in all their small-screen glory, and the great musical legacy of '60s television finds new life with La-La Land's four-disc boxed set of episode scores from THE WILD WILD WEST.  This series starring Robert Conrad and Ross Martin as Secret Service agents in post-Civil War America was an imaginative combination of Western, James Bond and Jules Verne, and featured one of the greatest of all TV main title themes, courtesy of Richard Markowitz. The La-La Land set features episodes scores by Markowitz as well as by Robert Drasnin, Harry Geller, Dave Grusin, Jack Pleis, Walter Scharf, Richard Shores and Fred Steiner, along with the show's unused orignial theme by Golden Age maestro Dimitri Tiomkin. The set is expected to begin shipping next week.

The commercial and critical success of Fatal Attraction in 1987 led to a subgenre of thrillers about ordinary folk menaced by mentally ill people in all walks of life, and 1992's UNLAWFUL ENTRY, directed by Jonathan Kaplan (Heart Like a Wheel, The Accused), pitted obsessed cop Ray Liotta against happily married couple Kurt Russell and Madeleine Stowe. For the music, Kaplan reunited with his Project X composer, James Horner, who provided an electronics-dominated score. Intrada released a 35-minute score CD at the time, while LLL's remastered and expanded version features 49 minutes of Horner music, shipping this week.

The latest episodic collaboration between composer Blake Neely and TV writer-producer Greg Berlanti is a revisionist version of the beloved Archie comics titled RIVERDALE, which places the popular teen characters in a mystery-soap narrative. La-La Land's CD of music from the show's first season is expected to begin shipping next week.

Composer Steve Jablonsky reteamed with director Michael Bay for their mutual fifth entry in the Transformers franchise, the recently released TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT, and La-La Land's Last Knight is a limited edition (3000 units) two-disc set featuring more than two hours of Jablonsky score, and is expected to begin shipping the week after next.


In the least surprising film music news of the last year or two, it was confirmed that John Williams will write the score for Steven Spielberg's upcoming journalism docudrama THE PAPERS (formerly titled The Post), with Meryl Streep as Washington Post owner Katherine Graham and Tom Hanks as editor Ben Bradlee (the role that won Jason Robards his All the President's Men Oscar).

However, in the most surprising film news of the last year or two, it was announced that since Spielberg's other upcoming film, the Willy-Wonka-meets-virtual-reality sci-fi adventure READY PLAYER ONE, would need to be scored at roughly the same time as The Papers, the film would be scored by Alan Silvestri, who has scored other Spielberg productions such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit and the Back to the Future trilogy, this will be the first time he has worked with Spielberg as a director.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

DIXIELAND - West Dylan Thordson

"Despite its shortcomings, Bedford’s film -- he was an assistant to David O. Russell, Bennett Miller, and Tarsem Singh in the past -- excels at mood and occasionally even lands in a soulful moment. West Dylan Thordson‘s ('Foxcatcher') sparse score is somber and best communicates the character’s desires and longings for something more. Likewise, cinematographer Tobias Datum‘s use of natural light makes for a picture that often looks and feels dreamy and meditative."
 
Rodrigo Perez, IndieWire
 
"The handheld camerawork by Tobias Datum ('Smashed') rides a line between documentary and narrative and can be overly busy; at its best, it’s intimately in tune with the characters. Visual motifs, such as the image of birds circling overhead, start to look like filler rather than cinematic poetry, while West Dylan Thordson's winningly spare score grows more obvious and melodramatic, in parallel with the story."
 
Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

THE GIRL IN THE BOOK - Will Bates

"While that is one mark against 'The Girl in the Book,' the film truly is excellent and Cohn’s sensitive and accomplished writing and directing belies her debut status: this seems like the product of a far more experienced storyteller. The two storylines are a lot to weave together and she does so seamlessly; her directing is fluid and creative, enhancing the themes through the film’s style. And the propulsive and anxious score by Will Bates adds to the expression of Alice’s troubled inner life. 'The Girl in the Book' is an auspicious debut for Cohn, a showcase for VanCamp’s true acting abilities, and a fascinating feminine story."
 
Kate Walsh, IndieWire
 
"The assured but unshowy package is particularly complemented by Jessica Brunetto’s editing and Will Bates’ score, among other factors that lend the film’s overall impact the alert observational intelligence of a first-rate short story."
 
Dennis Harvey, Variety

INGRID BERGMAN - IN HER OWN WORDS - Michael Nyman

"Directed by Bergman's countryman Stig Björkman and beautifully narrated by Alicia Vikander, another fellow Swede, it has been lovingly culled from home movies, diaries and letters to friends. The film benefits enormously from the contribution of all four of Bergman's children including, of course, Isabella Rossellini, in delightfully idiosyncratic form. Björkman and his editor Dominika Daubenbüchel have a gift for evocatively compiled montage, while the score by master composer Michael Nyman envelops proceedings with great elegance and wonderful drama."
 
Emma Simmonds, The List
 
"With so much reference material at his disposal, Björkman can’t pierce that mystery entirely, but what he does do quite elegantly is explore the mixed feelings of those four surviving children, all of whom make clear how much fun she was to be with and yet -- without any sense of 'Mommie Dearest' recrimination -- also give vent to their feelings of being left behind when she was away filming, or indeed when she had moved cities to be with a new partner. Michael Nyman’s chamber-scaled score, in part a reworking of his affecting soundtrack for 1999’s 'Wonderland,' provides a tellingly poignant undertow to the family’s to-and-fro of enduring affection and unrequited longing, all of which adds considerably to our understanding of one of the screen’s indelible icons."
 
Trevor Johnston, Sight and Sound

"Fortunately, the exceptional home movies, many shot by Bergman herself, are an unending source of pleasure, visually reinforcing her children’s warm-hearted reminiscences: Their mother was fun to be around. Judging from the letters she wrote to Ruth Roberts, Irene Selznick and others, she was also a good friend (seconded in several memoirs). 'In Her Own Words'” boasts solid tech credits and a Michael Nyman score whose unmistakable 'ostinatos' hark back to the composer’s best-known film music."
 
Jay Weissberg, Variety
 
"The portrait that emerges is intimate -- perhaps too intimate for film lovers who might have preferred to hear more about the star’s working methods, and fewer details about her husbands and kids. But as Isabella remarks a propos of her mother’s letters, there is surprisingly little in them about her professional life. They’re all about her children. This is perhaps how Bergman saw herself, with many inserts of her home movies and photographs she took with her numerous cameras. A romantic score by Michael Nyman completes this very appealing if non-critical bio."
 
Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
 
THE LETTERS - Ciaran Hope
 
"Riead stacks up scenes of simplistic conflict: a sniffy nun trying to keep Mother Teresa from getting her mission approved; angry Calcuttans complaining that 'this Christian woman' is going to try to convert their children; a morally questionable foreign correspondent ignoring her demands that he write about something else; and so on. Meanwhile, the near wall-to-wall uplifting synthesizer score, playing behind montages of the sick and uneducated flocking to Mother Teresa, pushes toward overkill."
 
Noel Murray, The Onion AV Club

"A final note: The film’s music is credited to Ciaran Hope, but unless the copy provided for review contained temp tracks, some of it seems to have been lifted directly from Hans Zimmer’s score for 'The Thin Red Line.'"
 
Godfrey Cheshire, RogerEbert.com
 
"The future Nobel laureate vomits when she first sees a man covered in sores, but she’s toughened up by the time she delivers the breech baby of a Hindu couple who had yelled at her for being nice to one of their other children. Bloodied but stoic after the difficult birth, the nun walks away in slow motion, giving the rescued woman’s husband a chance to catch up to her and thank her on his knees while inspirational music drowns out his words."
 
Inkoo Kang, The Wrap
 
THEEB - Jerry Lane
 
"The prophetic lines that open Naji Abu Nowar‘s debut feature-length film, 'Theeb,' speak of true depths, brotherhood, and death. And for the next hour and forty minutes, the film delicately explores these three major forces through the eyes of Theeb (Jacid Eid), a young Bedouin boy growing up in the Ottoman province of Hejaz in 1916, while the rest of the world’s attention curled towards Europe and the First World War. With the support of a beautifully composed score by Jerry Lane, and Wolfgang Thaler‘s terrific cinematography, the atmosphere that pervades 'Theeb' is one of unforced reverence. Elemental in construct and narrative, the picture breathes through the screen during Theeb’s moments of quiet reflection at his surroundings and all the cruelty the vast, all-encompassing desert has to offer.In craft and execution, the picture has zero trace of being a debut feature. Even the non-professional actors have a remarkable chemistry in front of the camera, and the dark brown buttons that are Jacid Eid’s eyes will make audience members empathetic in an instant. Lane’s score, like the song about the forsaken home near the beginning of the film that emphatically spills over into the next scene in VO, coats the film with a reverent layer. Thaler’s cinematography makes impressionable use of the vastness, and Nowar symbolically frames his characters against the mountainous backdrop -- the final shot rank among the most painterly of the year. Without a trace of forcefulness, exposition, or stilted humor, 'Theeb' is the kind of film cinephiles might choose over something like 'Beasts Of No Nation,' the more publicized coming-of-age wartime story of the year. On the flip side, though, the latter is much more accessible in terms of Western-style storytelling. In any case, 'Theeb' is an arthouse gem that celebrates world cinema through a Middle Eastern perspective, and as an unfamiliar approach to familiar themes, should be lauded and sought out by those in the mood for some serious, and seriously good, cinema."
 
Nikola Grozdanovic, IndieWire

"The palpable affection for each other conveyed by Eid and Salameh (real-life cousins) has a cinematic intensity that quickly wins over viewers, and the novice performers’ ease onscreen, especially young Eid, act as counterweights to the truly stunning scenery, which could so easily have stolen the show from lesser talents. As it is, the unearthly beauty of the landscape, shot in Wadi Arabeh and Wadi Rum by Ulrich Seidl’s frequent collaborator Wolfgang Thaler, will doubtless boost international interest in shooting in Jordan. Abu Nowar’s decision to film on Super 16 with an anamorphic lens pays off with glowing dividends, the format’s scope and warmth ideal for this sort of story and location. Jerry Lane’s score feels a little too Western, despite Arabic music inflections."
 
Jay Weissberg, Variety

"The ace cinematography, courtesy of Wolfgang Thaler (who shot Michael Glawogger's globetrotting documentaries as well as Seidl's 'Paradise' trilogy), isn’t interested so much in the beautiful landscapes as such but rather in how they can help suggest emotional states and elevate the struggles and accelerated coming-of-age of little Theeb to a higher plane. Jerry Lane’s music is equally tuned into the material, imbuing the story with grandeur where necessary but also not afraid to play it small if small means heartbreaking; a mournful strings solo when Theeb dedicates himself to a terrible task involving sand and stones is haunting exactly because it’s so bare bones."
 
Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
