DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

I'M CHARLIE WALKER - Adam Lindquist
 
"The low-budget film’s technical package is scarcely any better. Cinematographer Bill Holshevnikoff perhaps deserves a bit of a pass for flat compositions, but Gilles, whose only other feature experience is a shared writing and directing credit on the 2011 curio 'Olive,' shows little to no visual imagination, nor flair for staging. He also indulges an enormously wrongheaded score by Adam Lindquist, the nadir of which comes during a scene in which the ostensible perils of an interrupted home break-in are undercut by music which sounds like it’s from an insurance commercial."
 
Brent Simon, The Onion AV Club 
 
KIMI - Cliff Martinez
 
"Soderbergh also seems to have a great time just playing in the thriller sandbox, from the elegant simplicity of the third act chase (she’s merely trying to get from one place to another while evading surveillance, but it’s a nail-biter) to the genuinely harrowing bit with an attempted van kidnapping to the delightful mechanics of everything he’s doing in the 'Wait Until Dark'-style climax.  And the score, by Soderbergh’s career-long collaborator Cliff Martinez, masterfully fuses his modern electronica vibe with a classic Hitchcockian suspense theme; it genuinely sounds like some sort of bastard child of Brian Eno and Bernard Herrmann, but also slyly funny, that rare mixture of both heartfelt homage and wink."
 
Jason Bailey, The Playlist 

"It should be no surprise to anyone who has followed Soderbergh's career to reveal that 'KIMI' is as finely crafted as this kind of film can possibly be. Soderbergh glides his camera through the loft in a way that never calls attention to his style but always feels artistically grounded. His framing is always effective, as is the razor-sharp editing he does under the pseudonym Mary Ann Bernard. 'KIMI' is such a tight movie, coming in under 90 minutes and without an ounce of narrative fat on its bones. And while Soderbergh himself is the main craftsman here, credit should also go to a propulsive score by the great Cliff Martinez ('Drive')."
 
Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com 

"The first two acts of David Koepp’s economical script are set almost entirely in Angela’s apartment, and Soderbergh does wonders in lending dynamism to her spacious loft, using the camera to close it off and open it up as the drama demands. There can be a cold impersonality to the filmmaker’s aesthetics, but the presentation of space here is keenly dialed into Angela’s state of mind -- except in those moments when the camera seems to adopt a critical distance. Atypical sweeping camera movements at narrative turning points and the playfully Bernard Hermann-esque ambient swells of Cliff Martinez’s score carry an intriguing alienating effect, working in productive counterpoint to the plot’s straightforward murder mystery."
 
Pat Brown, Slant Magazine 
 
"'Kimi''s obvious inspirations include 'Rear Window' (when it comes to the homebound Angela’s relationship to the wall of windows outside) and 'Blow Out' (in its treatment of the audio evidence and the conspiratorial forces she stumbles onto). Its Hitchcockian aspirations are further signaled by the lush score from Cliff Martinez, which is deliberately out of step with the sleek, tech-centric setting."
 
Alison Willmore, New York 

"'Kimi' is executed with a brisk sketch-like lightness, propelled by a jittery score from Cliff Martinez and pulse-jumping blasts of music from Billy Eilish to The Beastie Boys. "
 
Liam Lacey, Original CIN 

"He is also, not for the first time, using contemporary technology to riff on great crime movies from an earlier era. The faces of Angela’s across-the-street neighbors (including Byron Bowers and Devin Ratray) bring the inevitable specter of 'Rear Window' into view. (Cliff Martinez’s score compounds the Hitchcock vibes with a rich Bernard Herrmann-esque lushness.) But as Angela’s investigation pulls her deeper into the weeds -- bringing her into contact with a top executive (a terrific Rita Wilson) whose warm smile offers the opposite of reassurance -- 'Kimi' begins to take on the paranoid-thriller contours of Alan J. Pakula’s 1974 classic, 'The Parallax View.' Those who’ve followed Soderbergh’s recent work may also be reminded of the murderous corporate conspiracy in last year’s 'No Sudden Move,' which is set in the 1950s automobile industry. Times and technologies may change, but the banality of capitalist evil never does."
 
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times 

"In case you were wondering, yes, we have been here before. Not specifically in a Soderbergh film, but in 'The Conversation' (where Gene Hackman played a solitary surveillance snoop who realizes he may have recorded a murder), and in a handful of other cinematic references that Soderbergh does winking homage to: 'Blow-Up,' 'Rear Window,' 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' -- and, in a funny way, the recycling spirit of Brian De Palma, who’s evoked through the film’s voluptuous old-fashioned musical score, by Cliff Martinez, which sounds like an homage to the Hitchcock/Herrmann homages of Pino Donaggio."
 
Owen Gleiberman, Variety 

"This is not major Soderbergh, but it works to the extent it does due to his firm hand at the wheel, persuasively hitching traditional genre tropes to a chillingly contemporary world of insidious technology -- which in this case proves helpful. The director’s greatest asset in all this is a dynamite score by Cliff Martinez, its unsettling chordal progressions and jittery flights adding a modern edge to throwback suspense accompaniment."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN - Isobel Waller-Bridge
 
"No one works harder than cinematographer Kit Fraser (who also shot Roberts’ last film, 'Eternal Beauty') and editor Jonathan Amos, who keep the mischievous visuals interesting enough to distract us from the predictability of the plot. Composer Isobel Waller-Bridge ('Emma.') leans into the sentimentality but with a light and often lovely touch."
 
Elizabeth Weitzman, The Wrap 

"Flitcroft’s introduction to the sport – the final minutes of the British Open on his tiny television – propel the would-be golfer into a dreamlike sequence, climbing from an enormous sand trap to a building-sized golf tee. Occasionally, Roberts also includes Jeremy Blake-style interstitials, blending color gradients and Isobel Waller-Bridge’s score in a manner best described as 'Punch Drunk Love'-esque."
 
Matthew Monagle, The Austin Chronicle
