DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

CRIMES OF THE FUTURE - Howard Shore

"There’s plenty of signs of Cronenberg’s bone-dry wit in the world-building (the law enforcement agency’s motto is 'No crime like the present') and on-the-nose dialogue ('surgery is the new sex,' whispers Kristen Stewart’s bureaucrat earnestly). The excellent Howard Shore score underpins it all with a classical grandeur, while Douglas Koch’s lighting bathes it in gorgeous noirish shadows."
 
Phil de Semlyen, Time Out 

"'Crimes of the Future'  sees Cronenberg working once again with collaborators like composer Howard Shore and production designer Carol Spier, and that déjà vu bleeds into their work, even as their contributions are both accomplished and intricate. Does it look cool when the characters trot out surgical instruments that look like bones and claws, or mechanical devices that look like tumors or insect exoskeletons? Of course it does. Is there an inescapable been-there-done-that feeling tied in with beholding such sights in a Cronenberg movie? Absolutely."
 
Alonso Duralde, The Wrap 
 
"For the filmmaker’s regular admirers, little will feel like wholly uncharted territory: Cronenberg has long been fascinated by how readily our minds and bodies bend themselves to the contours of modern technology, and here he pushes that concept to a physiologically and ecologically grim conclusion. (He also reunites with several of his gifted collaborators, including Howard Shore, who composed the memorably brooding score, and Carol Spier, whose production design finds a grimy, ruinous splendor in the movie’s Greek locations.)"
 
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times 
 
"But don’t worry, the filmmaker is still here to flex on pretenders to his genre throne. Cronenberg’s Crimes take place in a future defined by ergonomic technofurniture seemingly built by the same f*cked-up IKEA that supplied 'eXistenZ''s gristle gun. Spectators film performances with ring-cameras, but also hoist anachronistic camcorders and snap photos with ‘80s point-and-shooters; it’s in the bony, brittle, enveloping, Giger-like beds and high chairs that we see a vision of humanity’s physical deterioration. But that deterioration has also left plenty of room for development. New organs, new systems, new ailments and new well-marketed means to care for them -- all angles of an accelerated evolution taking the form of strange cancers and pica-enhancing, pollution-solving digestive developments. Crimes’ world crashes into you thanks to these incredible props, fully situating you in its gunky What Hath God Wroughttery Barn catalog. By the time its characters start unzipping torsos like so many flies, cagily opened by a thrill-seeking lover in an empty back alley, you’re immersed in its normalized transgressions. Of course Howard Shore’s grinding score would accompany a scalpel-focused sex scene."
 
Jacob Oller, Paste Magazine 

"'Crash' was Cronenberg pushing his metaphor madness to the wall, and he does the same thing in 'Crimes of the Future.' But this is a much more compelling movie, because in its gloom-future way it invites you into the blood-soaked dystopia it creates. The film lures you in and tugs you along, abetted by Howard Shore’s fantastic score, which at times suggests the slow movement of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony as rewritten by Boris Karloff."
 
Owen Gleiberman, Variety 

"Cronenberg’s fascination with the intersection between human life and technology has informed many of his films, and there’s a darkly beguiling visual quality to his exploration of that unsettling gray zone here, with invaluable contributions from his longtime production designer, Carol Spier, and first-time DP, Douglas Koch. Even more significant is the enveloping effect of Howard Shore’s turbulent score, a full-bodied, noirish dreamscape that adds substance to a story perhaps slightly undercooked on the page."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
FIREBIRD - Krzysztof A. Janczak
 
"'Firebird' is a swooningly romantic love story, clearly influenced and inspired by films like 'Brokeback Mountain,' with themes of forbidden love in an ultra-masculine setting. It also draws from some of the classic love stories of the past like 'Now Voyager,' with deep, unabashed romanticism, as though the modernist tone of ironic distance never existed. This love story gets the full-scale, old-school glamour treatment: gorgeous people, yearning glances, exquisite images, swelling music, passionate kisses, interlaced fingers, golden moments, anguished moments. Although there are very explicit passages, beyond the wildest imagination of the movie romances of the 1940s and '50s, “Firebird” holds on to the symbolic depiction of passion, with rainstorms and even a shot of planes soaring through the sky at a climactic moment."
