DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

ASCENSION - Dan Deacon

"'Ascension' often veers into the surreal, made more unnerving by Kingdon’s static camera and long takes, not to mention Dan Deacon’s quietly eerie score. But as surreal as it may at first seem ('Look at these crazy Chinese kids and their wacky company cultural training boot camps!'), there is absolutely no difference between China and the Western world in the underlying market forces at work here. We’re all headed there: China just got there first because it’s the most populated country on the planet. As one of the many banners in front of a factory intones 'Sense of worth. Chinese dream.' You may also add, 'Welcome to the machine.'"
 
Josh Kupecki, The Austin Chronicle 
 
"Nothing in 'Ascension' is stated outright or offered to the audience with an encouraging nudge, though, so perhaps a lack of context is appropriate. A strings-heavy score is the only influence in this regard, cresting at certain moments and colliding in discord during others. Like Kingdon, it seems to know better than to get in the way of the subjects, whose ghostly, blank movements through China’s economic revolution speak more succinctly than any text card or talking head ever could."

Warren Cantrell, The Playlist 

"On a broader scale, 'Ascension' stands as a spiritual cousin to Rahul Jain’s 'Machines,' an Indian film about the exploitation of poor individuals in a textile factory, but with its sights set upwards as it tracks the different layers of the Chinese social strata. Kingdon’s imagery meanwhile gives the impression of spontaneity but communicates loudly who the beneficiaries and the victims are of relentless industrial growth. Their faces are accompanied by an ominous score from composer Dan Deacon."
 
Carlos Aguilar, RogerEbert.com 

"Jessica Kingdon’s fascinating observational documentary, which looks at aspiration, manufacture, consumption and waste in China, is full of such intriguing snapshots. Accompanied by a lithe, organic score by Dan Deacon, which weaves the rhythms of industry and technology into the music, the film is a mosaic portrait of the realities and repercussions of 'the Chinese dream'."
 
The Observer 
 
"Kingdon and fellow cinematographer Nathan Truesdell share a tremendous observational sense and Ascension succeeds when it drops the viewer into an unfamiliar setting and lets us situate at a deliberate pace. Sometimes that might just involve waiting for context clues before going, 'Oh, they’re making blue jeans,' or spending a few seconds figuring out how the shiny plastic caps and piles of containers popping off an assembly line are part of a line bottling water, or processing the positioning of the camera above a graveyard of yellow rent-a-bikes, all beautiful and all commentaries on waste. Ascension could probably function without any actual on-camera people at all, meshing the factory imagery and later more affluent locations like an elaborate water park with Dan Deacon’s score, which often uses ambient manufacturing sounds as atonal components within the music."
 
Daniel Feinberg, The Hollywood Reporter 

THE DESPERATE HOUR - Fil Eisler

"There's an alternately pulse-pounding and ethereally uplifting score that evokes work by Thomas Newman ('The Shawshank Redemption,' 'In the Bedroom') and clever drone shots that help us admire the fall foliage in the woodland areas Amy runs through. At the very end, there's a plaintive tune that might have a shot at a Best Original Song nomination at next year's Oscars, if this movie gets some traction with Oscar bloggers."
 
Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com 

"Amy (Naomi Watts) is on a long morning run in the woods, and the titular hour refers to the time that it takes her to get to her son Noah’s (Colton Gobbo) school, where an active shooter incident has broken out. That would be sufficient enough drama for most films, but Amy is also dealing with the grief of her husband’s recent death and anxiety over Noah’s severe depression. And the filmmakers insist on backing her near-constant panic and emotional strife with a relentlessly overwrought and sappy score that highlights the fact that she’s less a fully realized character than a cipher whose pain is whittled down to fodder for cheap suspense."
 
Derek Smith, Slant Magazine
 
"The joke of all this, or maybe just the low-camp arduousness of it, is that the smartphone is a device that now seems about as novel as a television remote or a dishwasher. Why spin an entire movie around a wide-eyed presentation of its capabilities? Because, I guess, it seems like a hook. Shot with small-scale ingenuity during the pandemic, 'The Desperate Hour' is a minimalist 'topical' thriller. A lot of it consists of the camera, hand-held, right up at Amy’s face, or surveying the woods, with the suspense music pounding. It’s meant to be 'real time' suspense, and Naomi Watts, there’s no question, goes all out. In an accomplished piece of acting, she screams and cries, she modulates, she hyperventilates; she gives a highly existential performance of live-wire fear."
 
Owen Gleiberman, Variety

GREAT FREEDOM - Nils Petter Molvaer, Peter Brötzmann 
 
"Meise’s script is short on words and long on stolen moments; much of the information we’re given is encrypted in prison code and untranslated by a score that tells us how to feel (there’s no non-diegetic music except for a few isolated appearances by a mournful jazz horn, which aren’t used to augment a certain emotion so much as they are to detail its absence)."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 

THE PACT - Frederic Vercheval
 
"Deftly mounted, shot and scored, 'The Pact' is a master class in ensemble acting, led by Neumann in a visceral, deeply layered and knife‘s-edge turn. Bennebjerg is affecting as an Everyman caught between traditional and higher-minded desires, while Voss and August (the director’s daughter) deliver acutely sensitive, often heartbreaking performances."
 
Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times 

SUPERCOOL - Jacques Brautbar
 
"The jokes might fall notably flatter than they do if 'Supercool' didn’t do a fair job living up to its title in all design departments, their contributions creating a slick, genial package. Burns Burns’ production design, Natalia Collazo’s costumes, Cory Geryak’s widescreen cinematography and more take pains to provide a lot of vividly hued stimulation, all propelled along by Jussi Rautaniemi’s lively editorial pace. One element that doesn’t elevate is the somewhat routinely antic synth sounds of Jacques Brautbar’s original score."
 
Dennis Harvey, Variety 

TURNING RED
- Ludwig Goransson
 
"The concept behind 'Turning Red' premise is as inventive and zippy as anything in their catalog and, coming from the studio that has made animated classics about silent robots and an old man in a flying house, that says a lot. Mei (Rosalie Chiang) is a 13-year-old Chinese girl living in Toronto right after the turn of the millennium. She’s full of self-confidence and gumption -- she goes to school where she excels, then comes home to the temple her family runs and tries to make her exacting mother, Ming (Sandra Oh), happy. Also, she has a group of girlfriends (what would be referred to in contemporary culture as a squad), and together they obsess over their favorite boy band, 4*Town. (4*Town’s ultra-catchy songs were created by Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas and the intentionally syrupy score was composed by Ludwig Göransson.) So, you know, the usual."
 
Drew Taylor, The Playlist 

"That of course means downplaying her obsession with 4*Town, a boy band whose pelvic gyrations and confusingly punctuated moniker are clearly modeled on ’N Sync (N*Sync? *NSYNC?) at the peak of its early-aughties popularity. It’s probably not revealing too much to note that a badly timed 4*Town concert will factor heavily into the plot, or that the band’s songs are velvety earworms of the highest order. (Billie Eilish and Finneas wrote the songs; Ludwig Göransson composed the movie’s score.) There’s something particularly pleasing about the harmony that 'Turning Red' achieves between the lyricism of ancient Chinese legend and the synthetic creaminess of teeny-bopper pop."
 
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times 
 
"That of course takes place at the SkyDome, where Ludwig Göransson’s score -- mixing bouncy, big-synth pop with traditional Chinese music -- is interwoven with infernally catchy 4*Town gems titled 'U Know What’s Up,' 'Nobody Like U' and '1 True Love' (sample lyrics: 'Heavy rain on a Saturday / When you said my name in the saddest way'). Co-songwriter O’Connell also provides the sugary-sweet tight harmonies with Jordan Fisher, Topher Ngo, Grayson Villanueva and Josh Levi. Yes, there are five of them despite being called 4*Town, as Ming pedantically points out."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
 
WRITING WITH FIRE - Tadjar Juniad
 
"Thomas and Ghosh, who also shoot (along with co-DP Kharan Thapliyal) and edit, don’t make any huge formal leaps here. And a basic foreknowledge of India’s recent socio-political shifts is recommended to place some of the outlet’s heroics in context. But the directors have so much to work with, it’s impressive they produce as coherent a document as this. With composer Tadjar Juniad’s musical stings smoothing the transitions from one story to the next, they cover a lot. And just when it seems there’s no time for levity they’ll slip in an unexpectedly joyous moment, like a journalism-workshop tour of Kashmir where the women have a snowball fight. Or a beaming Suneetra, Khabar Lahariya’s first international representative, in a selfie video taken on a bright Sri Lankan beach."
