THE CELLAR - Stephen McKeon
"Even such rudimentary 'demon bad, family good' dynamics might pass muster if the undercooked narrative were flavored with enough creepiness in mood and setpieces. But aside from a few adequate jump scares, the film stubbornly refuses to develop any suspenseful grip. There are far too many scenes (particularly burdened on Cuthbert) in which characters over-act fear while practically nothing is happening at all, even as Stephen McKeon’s original score labors to suggest otherwise, complete with 'Omen'-like quasi-Gregorian chants. Even a climactic leap into fantastical imagery somehow comes off as lacking energy and imagination, like much else here: Hell appears to be an endless queue of somnambulists."
Dennis Harvey, Variety 
"And maybe the much-improved script, relying less heavily on leaden mythological backstory and instead focusing on a more propulsive plot, brought out the best in people. Director David Yates, who has been carrying the Harry Potter torch since the fifth film in the main franchise (he’s only directed a single non-Potter film since 2006, 2016’s underrated 'The Legend of Tarzan'), feels enlivened by the new material. It’s easily his best-directed film since the penultimate Potter installment, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1,' and the cast seems reinvigorated, too, even if some of them sat this one out (Katherine Waterston only shows up for a cameo). Even James Newton Howard’s score is zippier than it has been in the previous two entries."
Drew Taylor, The Playlist 

"These 'Fantastic Beasts' movies are just not good. They’re extremely OK, but never truly inspiring or transporting. This third installment is somewhat of an improvement over 2018’s dour 'The Crimes of Grindelwald,' and it’s about on par with the first film in the series, 2016’s whimsical 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,' in terms of pure enjoyment. They’re all chasing the dragon of that astronomical, worldwide, once-in-a-generation 'Harry Potter' success, but each new movie in this spinoff franchise reminds us of how unnecessary and inferior they are. They can fly over Hogwarts and play a snippet of the soaring John Williams theme as young wizards chase the snitch in a game of Quidditch (an image that inspired my 12-year-old son to groan, 'Fan service!' during a recent screening)."
Christy Lemire, 

"There are still some satisfactions to be found by the Harry Potter fan who swoons at the slightest hint of John Williams’s musical motifs, and a brief appearance from a young Professor McGonagall (Fiona Glascott) is one such delight. George Richmond’s camera seems to take refuge in the scenes that swoop over the turrets of Hogwarts and through the school’s Great Hall while a Golden Snitch flits by, and 'The Secrets of Dumbledore' is on safest ground where the warmth of familiar scenery offer sufficient distraction from the plotholes."
Dan Rubins, Slant Magazine 

"So despite Yates’ attractive orchestration, costumer Colleen Atwood’s impeccable, era-appropriate menswear-leaning garments, and the magical production design by Stuart Craig and Neil Lamont, the magic-focused film series never quite finds the enchanted spark that made the Harry Potter franchise so urgently essential. By comparison, the overall story told in the 'Fantastic Beasts' films feels more like an overlong book -- one with missing chapters. The familiar grounds of Hogwarts and the fairy dust of composer John Williams’ iconic Harry Potter theme only make us wish we were watching that film series instead of this humorless slog."
Tomris Laffly, The Onion AV Club 

"'Secrets of Dumbledore' is not without its charms, though. Director David Yates (who helmed four Potter films and the entirety of 'Fantastic Beasts' thus far) returns with a formidable crew that includes director of photography George Richmond, production designers Stuart Craig and Neil Lamont, editor Mark Day, costume designer Colleen Atwood and composer James Newton Howard to re-create the rich, textured Wizarding World. The battle scenes -- slowed down and shot from a variety of angles -- add tension and show off the franchise’s technical precision and prowess. The magic creatures are carefully constructed and the world within Newt’s briefcase remains dazzling.
Lovia Gyarke, The Hollywood Reporter 

GAGARINE - Amin Bouhafa, Sacha & Evgueni Galperine
"This is also when the filmmakers, with the aid of cinematographer Victor Seguin’s elegantly fluid shots and many fine sound/music craftspeople, begin to convey Youri’s ambition and isolation with elements of the fantastical, as if his near-metaphysical connection with a doomed place was the equivalent of a lone spaceman in countdown, hoping to achieve a kind a dreamlike liftoff from what will soon be a pile of debris from a previous architectural age. The first half’s sprightly, mostly daytime scenes of communal bustle in a real location -- Liatard and Trouilh filmed onsite at the post-condemned Cité Gagarine before demolition began in 2019 -- segues into a color-and-light-themed, theremin-scored, sci-fi fugue state."
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times 

"Arriving almost a decade after 'The Strange Little Cat,' the debut that announced the Swiss-born, Berlin-based Zürcher twins as filmmakers of striking originality, their sophomore outing expands upon that 2013 film’s visual grammar. Working again with cinematographer Alexander Haßkerl, they tap into the weirdness of the familiar in ways that are at once inscrutable and transparent, comic and poignant. Philipp Moll’s lovely score helps to propel the proceedings with a tantalizing blend of restraint and exuberance, in sync with the arresting and intensely observed performances."
Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter 

THE NORTHMAN - Robin Carolan, Sebastian Gainsborough
"But 'The Northman' is never dull. The sheer muscularity of Eggers’ direction denies it that chance, as even the simplest scenes of Amleth glowering at his enemies or trudging through Fjölnir’s primordial farmland (Northern Ireland absolutely nailing its performance as Iceland) are bracingly rendered as steps on the road to Valhalla. Robin Carolan and Sebastian Gainsborough’s pounding score pumps the story full of blood like the heart of a whale, while Jarin Blaschke’s frostbitten cinematography allows the film to flatten mud-and-shit history into the stuff of 'Elden Ring' high fantasy until they feel equally true, both for Amleth and for us. Also, someone gets decapitated like every 10 minutes."
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 

"A recent New Yorker profile of Eggers revealed the near-comical exactitude of the research he and his team did on the Norse legends and Old Icelandic sagas on which 'The Northman' is based. Their work shows in the result, with stunningly detailed production design by Craig Lathrop and an unsettling score by Robin Carolan and Sebastian Gainsborough that uses historically accurate instruments like the bone flute and the tagelharpa, a lyre with strings made of horsehair. The costumes feel accurate down to the last cloak pin, helmet nose-guard, and mud-spattered head wrap. The screenplay was co-authored by Eggers and the Icelandic poet and novelist Sjón, a frequent Björk collaborator who also co-wrote the recent folk-horror film Lamb. While the characters’ archaic locutions sometimes evoke laughs that may or may not be intentional, the dialogue also shows an acute ear for the beauty of language and an avoidance of historical anachronism that’s uncommon in the sword-and-sandal tradition this movie hails from. One exception to that rule is some late scenes when a more enlightened Amleth, his vengeance-fixated worldview somewhat softened by his newfound connection to Olga, delivers some lines that sound a tad New Agey for a man who only days ago was skewering his foes like so many gravlax shish kebabs."
Dana Stevens, 

"Sonically, the chapters that comprise 'The Northman' are marked by the loud pounding of drums constantly startling and preparing us for war. In general, the atmospheric music composed by Robin Carolan and Sebastian Gainsborough carries ominousness, like a call to arms because the entire odyssey leads to a final confrontation of monumental proportions."
Carlos Aguilar, The Playlist  

"'The Northman' is the kind of movie where even the mud has rage; it is a visceral film filled with codas to the inescapable darker regions of nature: animal, elemental and the harshest of all, human. They all vibrate through Eggers’ signature warped soundscapes and Robin Carolan and Sebastian Gainsborough’s brooding score, as ambient reverbs and decaying delays reach back toward primordial origins. The trippy hypnotic dreamscapes attempt a similar reach: the crack VFX team render Amleth’s family tree, an ever-evolving stand-in for divine rule, as a blue glowing arterial fern arising from his heart while connecting to ours. It’s one of the many magical tendrils intertwining, and sometimes knotting up, 'The Northman,' a film where Björk portrays a blind seer pointing Amleth toward a sword with a dull-less blade and an unquenchable thirst for death."
Robert Daniels, 

"'Bring me the boy’s head,' Fjölnir commands his men, accompanied by the shrieking strings and pounding drums of Robin Carolan and Sebastian Gainsborough’s hard-driving score. But Amleth, after watching the slaughter of male villagers, abduction of the women and the Queen slung over Fjölnir’s shoulder and hauled off screaming, escapes by boat. He vows to rescue his mother, kill his uncle and avenge his father."
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 

YOU WON'T BE ALONE - Mark Bradshaw

"Stolevski and editor Luca Cappelli don’t hold your hand as they guide you through the trickier, stream-of-consciousness final passages of the movie, whose scares are punctuated by moments of transcendent visual poetry. A mesmerizing score by Mark Bradshaw (composer on Jane Campion’s 'Bright Star,' whose woozy period beauty feels like an influence here on Stolevski) blends ambient Brian Eno vibes with searching piano melodies that carry the film’s many luminously crafted montages as Nevena (or whoever she is at any point) comes up and into humanity almost as if on a drug."
Ryan Lattanzio, IndieWire 

"'You Won’t Be Alone' is a visual poem about tradition, gender, and looking through eyes that are not your own. It is, through the frame of the screen and Mark Bradshaw’s lush score, a bleeding, gory metaphor for why we watch movies. It is reflection. It is love."
Joshua Rivera, Polygon
"This comes courtesy of Matthew Chuang’s crisp, claustrophobic 1.66:1 photography, filled with unnerving closeups contrasted with wide, verdant hills and towering mountains. There’s no small amount of Terrence Malick in the film’s DNA -- the dreamlike editing, poetic voiceover from a waifish protagonist, the elegaic orchestral score."
Clint Worthington, Consequence 
"There are moments when you want to look away from 'You Won’t Be Alone,' but it’s so wildly compelling, in performance, writing and score, that one cannot. It feels like something unearthed from another time, an ancient relic that is utterly modern in its craft and in the truths it tells about the world. It is startling, and sometimes disturbing, but hits a place that is intensely human -- bittersweet and bloody and beautiful at once, and unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Is it horror? Well, life can be a horror. And yet …."
Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
