KNIGHT OF CUPS - Hanan Townshend
"This is all done through the Malick filter, which is Emmanuel Lubezki’s floating, pretty cinematography that’s highly reminiscent of his work with Malick on 'To the Wonder' combined with Hanan Townshend’s haunting score, and plenty of whispered narration from the characters. These are the staples of a Terrence Malick movie now just as explosions are the staples of a Michael Bay movie, but I’m not sure that these elements make 'Knight of Cups' any more powerful or insightful. Again, Malick risks wandering into self-parody, and the only thing that holds him back is that the themes in 'Knight of Cups' at least feel worth exploring."
Matt Goldberg, Collider

"From there, 'Knight of Cups' dives straight into its protagonist’s conundrum. With images of Bale’s character, Rick, running wild at a palatial house party set to Hanan Townshend’s cosmic score, narrator Brian Dennehy recounts the tale of the Knight of Cups -- a tarot card figure who represents self-involvement, 'sought a pearl from the depths of the sea,' but then drank from a cup that erased his memories of possessing royal blood. But 'the king didn’t forget his son,' we’re reminded. So begins the chronicle of famous actor Rick, the son of a similarly distant thespian (Dennehy), facing the burdens of their family history and other travails as Rick seeks some modicum of peace. At least, that’s about as much of a traditional framework as Malick offers up."
Eric Kohn, IndieWire

"If that sounds like too simplistic a premise for a 118-minute feature, the result is sufficiently sprawling and formally bold to propel the viewer’s attention forward, guided in part by the glitziness of the L.A. locations (abetted by Malick’s regular production designer, Jack Fisk) and the dynamic movement of the camera. Following a violent earthquake that rattles the foundations of Rick’s Santa Monica apartment, we find ourselves immersed in the lazy rhythms of life as he has come to know it -- conveyed in brief sensory snippets of him speeding down the 405 in a convertible, hanging around seemingly empty studio lots (Warner Bros. and Paramount make fleeting appearances), visiting the CAA compound in Century City, and cavorting with all manner of lissome young women in nightclubs and hotel suites. The pulsating background music in these scenes stands in jarring contrast to the passages of Grieg, Chopin, Pachelbel, Debussy, Arvo Part and other selections that otherwise flood the soundtrack in classically Malickian fashion, complemented by a recurring seven-note progression that forms the basis of the score by 'To the Wonder' composer Hanan Townshend."
Justin Chang, Variety
RATCHET & CLANK - Evan Wise, Jingle Punks
"Technically, while some generic character designs and plastic effects-work ensure the film’s video-game origins aren’t entirely erased, this independent production is bright and fluid enough to rank with middle-tier efforts from the animation arms of DreamWorks or Fox. Intentionally or otherwise, a palette of saturated oranges and ultra-marines recalls the acid futurism of Guillermo Del Toro’s 'Pacific Rim'; sonically, it’s less enticing, with Evan Wise’s darting, jangling score short on memorable motifs."
Guy Lodge, Variety
