DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

AFTER YANG - Aska Matsumiya; theme by Ryuichi Sakamoto
 
"Much of 'After Yang' feels like a dream. It’s in the way the images of Yang’s memories tumble into one another to the gorgeous music by ASKA and Ryuichi Sakamoto. It’s in this vision of a world that’s not our own but not too far removed, a common backdrop to dreamscapes. Kogonada's film is constantly asking incredibly deep questions, culminating in a flashback scene in which Kyra and Yang talk about what’s next. Yang hasn’t been programmed to believe in anything, even saying 'There’s no something without nothing.' Is life the something, following by the nothing? However, he seems to be shifting even in this scene, using a quote that's been attributed to Lao Tzu: 'What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly.' His visions of existence are shifting and growing, moving away from the precise details of his coding to the imprecision of humanity, steeping like a good tea. We all are."
 
Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com 

"Kogonada brings much poetry to the depiction of Jake coming to identify with Yang. Montages that play with asynchrony and repetition capture the unnatural, mysterious process of coming to inhabit a different position in the world via technology. But after a certain point, the direction of 'After Yang''s sympathies starts to feel, well, misdirected. As so many of the moments that Jake relives through Yang’s eyes are interactions with Jake himself, it becomes evident that Jake is discovering, belatedly, something that was staring him in the face the whole time. That Yang was, in fact, something like a complete person is a foregone conclusion as soon as Jake’s private investigation begins, but Kogonada draws out Jake’s realization, delivering each stage of the reveal with earnest, sappy strings on the soundtrack."
 
Pat Brown, Slant Magazine 

"Much of the film is punctuated by Mitski’s cover of the song 'Glide,' a song which first appeared in the 2001 film All About Lily Chou-Chou as performed by the titular fictional band. Mitski’s rendition is particularly haunting, only rivaled by Tjandrawidjaja’s gorgeous, girlish croon when she sings what she only knows as 'Yang’s favorite song' to her mother and father. Japanese electronic music composer Ryuichi Sakamoto contributed to the film’s score alongside Aska Matsumiya, conjuring a dreamlike sound that feels distinctly futuristic. Everything executed in 'After Yang' is done with utmost appreciation for the entire craft of cinema, particularly due to Kogonada’s intense involvement at various conceptual levels. Much like with his previous film 'Columbus,' the filmmaker also served as the editor, already having extensive experience through crafting video essays. However, this insular cinematic preciousness also leads to an over-polished slickness -- occasionally sabotaging the visceral emotional throughline of the film."
 
Natlia Keogan, Paste Magazine 

"One word for that alchemy is 'memory.' Some of the movie’s most affecting moments -- ushered along by the music of Aska Matsumiya and Ryuichi Sakamoto -- find Jake sifting through Yang’s memory bank, a trove of short video clips that provide a window into what may be independent thoughts. What does a robot consider memorable? A towering tree? A dancing child? A new friend (played by 'Columbus'' Haley Lu Richardson)? In these moments, 'After Yang' could be paying homage to the similarly titled 'After Life,' Hirokazu Kore-eda’s 1999 film about the quest to locate and preserve a single, perfect memory. And it’s not just a common name that reminded me of the late Taiwanese auteur Edward Yang, whose great family drama 'Yi Yi' -- another story about marital strain, gradual loss, a father’s journey, a child’s reckoning -- finds conscious and unconscious echoes here."
 
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times 

"As in 'Columbus,' the awareness of spaces and symmetries is significant in the visual scheme of DP Benjamin Loeb, working in a very different vein from his virtuoso single-take sequences and agitated energy in 'Pieces of a Woman.' The measured movement shapes our emotional responses to the scenes and the way the characters interact. The same goes for the mix of composer Aska Matsumiya’s melancholy score, used with an original theme by Ryuichi Sakamoto and a dreamy cover of 'Glide,' a song from the Japanese cult movie 'All About Lily Chou-Chou,' about teenagers searching for meaning in an alienating tech-obsessed culture.
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
 
THE BATMAN - Michael Giacchino
 
"As a work of multiplex visual art, of blockbuster eye candy, the film can be breathtaking. Reeves understands the graphic power of this graphic-novel material; he has an illustrator’s eye for exaggerated angles, previously demonstrated in the locked-vantage action sequences of his 'Let Me In' and 'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.' Here, he flexes that talent during a chaotic car chase that ends with an upside-down POV shot of Pattinson’s hero emerging triumphantly and terrifyingly from an inferno. Earlier, Reeves firms up Batman’s intimidating bona fides through a montage that keeps cutting to criminals glancing nervously into pockets of darkness, until the towering hero finally steps slowly and ominously out of one of them. And the film sounds even better, thanks to a remarkable Michael Giacchino score that alternates minimalist strums and imperial marches; it’s somehow in the same league as the operatic themes Danny Elfman once lent the franchise."
 
A.A. Dowd, The Onion AV Club 

"Meanwhile, though the music owes at least a subconscious debt to the unsettling ambience of Howard Shore’s work in 'Seven,' Michael Giacchino’s theme for the title character cooks John Williams’ 'Imperial March' down to its most menacing elements and then cranks up the volume to ear-splitting, cavernous levels, making the audience feel like they’re watching the film from inside a stand-up bass whose strings are being manipulated with a large, blunt instrument."
 
Todd Gilchrist, The Wrap 

"That it doesn’t come off as a parody of a parody is a testament to both the holistic nature of Reeves’ vision and the eagerness with which Pattinson buys into it. Bruce is pure id ('I am vengeance' is a common refrain), but the actor behind the eyeliner is earnest enough to balance out his anger, and 'The Batman' survives its eventual transition into more familiar superhero movie territory because of the slow-thawing self-awareness that Pattinson brings to the title role -- his realizations galvanized by a career-best Michael Giacchino score that pounds into your head as if Batman were sitting at the piano and playing it himself. If Bruce already knows that fear is an effective weapon, he’s about to learn that you can’t build anything with it."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 

"Reeves brings a sharp perspective to these characters. Particularly through the fight choreography. Heavy chiaroscuro lighting envelops every scene, styling the vast dilapidated urban landscape as grim yet alluringly beautiful. Michael Giacchino’s operatic score lives on the edge of unsettling. The blocking, or the differing spatial dynamics between Catwoman and Batman, defines the action with open fluidity and pure blunt force trauma (each of Batman’s punches sounds like a concussive blast). Reeves and DP Greig Fraser ('Dune: Part One') love holding the majority of the action in full shots, as nearly pitch-black figures, in one scene, are flung across a train platform. But it’s the sensual scenes begat by the action that are most memorable: In one scene, Batman pulls Catwoman behind a wall to hide from a few baddies. She nestles within his body, and they seem to breathe, sumptuously, in unison, as if governed by the same heartbeat."
 
Robert Daniels, The Playlist 

"This is a film in which humour is strictly forbidden. There's so little colour that it might as well be in black and white. And in place of Neal Hefti's singalong 'Batman' jingle, the music consists of Nirvana's 'Something in The Way,' Schubert's Ave Maria, and a funereal four-note riff, by composer Michael Giacchino, which is reminiscent of both 'Jaws' and Darth Vader."
 
Nicholas Barber, BBC.com 
 
"This is not to say that 'The Batman' is a downer; far from it. Despite the overlong running time of nearly three hours, this is a film that’s consistently viscerally gripping. The coolest Batmobile yet -- a muscular vehicle that’s straight out of 'Mad Max: Fury Road' -- figures prominently in one of the movie’s most heart-pounding sequences. It’s an elaborate car chase and chain-reaction crash ending with an upside-down shot of fiery fury that literally had me applauding during my screening. During a fight at a thumping night club, punctuated by pulsating red lights, you can feel every punch and kick. (That’s one of the more compelling elements of seeing this superhero in his early days: He isn’t invincible.) And a shootout in a pitch-black hallway, illuminated only by the blasts of shotgun fire, is both harrowing and dazzling. Greatly magnifying the power of scenes like these is the score from veteran composer Michael Giacchino. Best known for his Pixar movie music, he does something totally different with 'The Batman': percussive and horn-heavy, it is massive and demanding, and you will feel it deep in your core."
 
Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com

"Though 'The Batman''s vision of Gotham as a run-down, amoral dystopia borrows some imagery from Christopher Nolan’s 'Dark Knight' series, Reeves also brings his own visual flair to the material. Especially in a few enigmatic early sequences, the rain-glazed streetscapes and neon-lit diners recall the lonely universe of an Edward Hopper painting. The simple but effective soundtrack depends heavily on two recurring musical themes: Franz Schubert’s 'Ave Maria,' often transformed by composer Michael Giacchino into a minor-key dirge, and Nirvana’s plaintive ballad 'Something in the Way,' used as a kind of leitmotif for Pattinson’s Kurt Cobain-esque hero. If this all sounds too angsty to tolerate, 'The Batman' is not without flashes of intentional and often effective humor, usually relegated to the villains: In one otherwise tense confrontation, Farrell’s Penguin delivers a non-sequitur putdown about Batman’s grasp of foreign-language grammar that had the audience on the floor."
 
Dana Stevens, Slate.com 
 
"Except for hidden-camera contact lenses, his technology is mostly realistic, and unless one counts a rooftop BASE jump, he can’t fly. Unlike so many DC comic book heroes, Batman is neither a god nor an alien; he has no fantastical abilities. Bruce Wayne’s superpower is his billion-dollar fortune, but the guy behind the mask breaks and bleeds just like anybody else -- a point Reeves reminds us of with a shot of Pattinson’s bare back, covered in scars. Rather than leaning on a theme, Michael Giacchino’s score surprises, ranging from tense tribal drums to Nirvana to opera, while editors William Hoy and Tyler Nelson avoid obvious angles, leaving quiet spaces for audiences to process (and question) what’s happening."
 
Peter Debruge, Variety 

"Visceral use of sound is key to the film’s immersive effect, but even more so an absolute banger of a score by Michael Giacchino. The symphonic underlay might have seemed excessive in less confident hands, but the graceful incorporation of specific themes for Batman and Selina, as well as pre-existing music ranging from classical pieces to Nirvana, provides tonal variation to ensure that 'The Batman' never becomes a punishing downer."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 

FABIAN: GOING TO THE DOGS - Sven Rossenbach, Florian van Volxem
 
"Graf, whose long career in Germany includes a lot of television, has a serialist’s energy when it comes to Kästner’s winding narrative (which Graf co-adapted with Constantin Lieb). Following 'Fabian' is like keeping up with someone on a jazzy, heady bender. Stylistically, it’s rough too and willfully chaotic in the early going, marked by jarring music cues, snatches of Super 8mm, blips of archival footage, omniscient voice-over (male and female) and even split screen, as if Graf were out to cinematically evoke the intoxicating bluntness of the merciless Weimar painters like George Grosz and Otto Dix."
 
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
