DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

BARBARIANS - Marc Canham
 
"Writer-director Charles Dorfman has seen the same movies fans of the genre have, and the greatest hits are all here. There are the title cards announcing a new chapter of the story, served with a thudding underscore (very 'The Shining'). There’s the scary masks the invaders wear (very 'The Strangers'). And there’s a bit of 'You’re Next' in there, too, as the invaders realize how vastly they’ve underestimated these four."
 
Mark Peikert, IndieWire

THE CONTRACTOR - Alex Belcher

"It’s easy to forget in the mess of the mission what the point of any of this is. One can argue that nihilism is, itself, the point being made here, that these veterans are screwed no matter what. The best hope for them is one where they’re no burden on their family, financially or otherwise. But that kind of reckoning is only to be found in the margins of 'The Contractor'; the rest is percussively-scored chase sequences."
 
Fran Hoepfner, The Wrap 
 
"Ostensibly set mostly in Germany, the well-turned production manages to pass muster with a disguised, primarily-Romanian shoot. DP Pierre Aim’s widescreen images and editor Theis Schmidt’s pacing are adept, while Alex Belcher’s original score is at its most effective when stripped down to an urgent electronic pulse."
 
Dennis Harvey, Variety 
 
"Saleh, working with the same production designer, cinematographer and editor from his previous feature, makes evocative use of locations in Germany, Romania and the States, and Alex Belcher’s score is in sync with the narrative’s gritty, in-the-moment pulse. And yet a sense of the vague and the overcooked creeps into the story as it proceeds. It’s the supremely well-etched character-focused groundwork that Saleh and his cast have laid that sustains the drama."
 
Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
