ALICE, DARLING - Owen Pallett

"Anna Kendrick plays the title character in director Mary Nighy’s tightly constructed gut-punch of an emotional character study, and it is a performance of integrity and utter realness. With a dialogue-driven, authentic screenplay by Alanna Francis, an effectively poignant score by Owen Pallett and powerful work by Kendrick and Kaniehtiio Horn and Wunmi Mosaku as Alice’s best friends, this is the kind of intimate drama that sticks with you long after the viewing experience."
Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times 

"It’s a chilling little film, avoiding maximalism at every turn, a bold debut from Nighy (whose only real slip-up is a score that can feel dull and uninspired) and a difficult reminder of a difficult experience. The chill will linger for a while."
Benjamin Lee, The Guardian 
"When all’s said and done, 'Alice, Darling' is missing emotional oomph. Maybe it’s because Anna Kendrick is still getting her dramatic feet under her or because the filmmaking (save for some very savvy editing by Gareth C. Scales of 'After Love') is fairly by-the-numbers -- the score appropriately mellow, the cinematography fine."
Lena Wilson, The Onion AV Club 

"If the film could have used a stronger sense of catharsis at the end, it is nonetheless all to the good that Nighy and Francis exercise such judicious prior restraint. That keeps 'Alice, Darling' from any sense of contrivance, the silent worry in Kendrick’s every gesture maintaining sufficient tension despite the lack of overt thriller devices. The thoughtful assembly is complemented in particular by Owen Pallett’s piano-based original score and Mike McLaughlin’s handsome but unshowy cinematography."
Dennis Harvey, Variety 
"One shot of people gathering around a firepit blurs until you can only see a previously invisible snail crawling across the extreme foreground of the frame. Another, straight out of Janusz Kaminski’s fever dreams, watches insects slurp from a puddle as a plane screams through the reflection a few thousand feet overhead. Roger Goula’s orgiastic synth score (a little Philip Glass, a lot of Dan Deacon) and Niladri Shekhar Roy and Moinak Bose’s visceral sound recording (brace for an entire chorus of rats) complement the micro-attention of the camerawork by hearing a tumult of life in even the most unassuming frame."
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 

"That line between real and apocalyptic is one that Sen and director of photography Benjamin Bernhard are ever mindful of, one that traces through Roger Goula’s ephemeral and mechanical score as well. That long opening shot is just the first of many times that the camera is left to take in the intersection of natural and human-chaotic in the city. Wild hogs march in procession along a river. Oxen navigate the increasingly decrepit streets. Monkeys teeter precariously on the wires that connect stacked apartment complexes to modernity."
Daniel Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter 

CALL JANE - Isabella Summers
"Directed by Phyllis Nagy (screenwriter of sensual classic 'Carol)', Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi’s script focuses on Joy Griffin (Banks), a happy homemaker and wife to upwardly mobile criminal lawyer Will (Chris Messina), and mother to ultra-precocious, sheltered fifteen-year-old Charlotte (a talented but wildly mature Grace Edwards). When Joy’s pregnancy threatens her own life, signified by a tinnitus-inducing heart condition, she must seek out a termination. Nagy, with the help of cinematographer Greta Zozula and composer Isabella Summers, crafts an atmosphere of confusion and frustration as Joy’s petition to a male hospital board is summarily denied, and she’s instead given the advice to either plead insanity, or fall down a staircase."
Shayne Maci Warner, Paste Magazine 

"'Call Jane' casually opens in a posh Chicago hotel as Joy (Elizabeth Banks) meanders through the lobby, past the live music of the dining room that intentionally clashes with the score. She emerges from the hotel, wide-eyed and naive as she steps into a police line that has formed to intimidate protesters across the street. It’s a strong opening from director Phyllis Nagy, but much like Joy’s aimless wandering in the hotel, 'Call Jane' loses some of its momentum along the way."
Maggie Lovitt, Collider

"Though the screenplay might hit a point or two rather neatly on the head, Carol screenwriter Nagy, at the helm of her first theatrical film (she directed a starry cast in the 2005 true-crime TV movie 'Mrs. Harris'), builds a subtle and affecting sense of time and place, with nods to ’70s indie filmmaking. The character-driven design contributions from Jona Tochet and Julie Weiss are steeped in a lived-in period palette, pops of vibrancy included. A soundtrack of refreshingly unobvious ’60s rock and funk weds well to the action, and Isabella Summers’ eloquent score offers keens of alarm and suspenseful percussive riffs, emphasizing the sense of upheaval, life-or-death danger and galvanic optimism that we experience through Joy’s eyes."
Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter 
CORSAGE - Camille
"To that temporally fluid end, Kreutzer has also seeded the film with historical inventions and anachronistic touches of deadpan insouciance, like suspiciously inauthentic clothing and locations (you can spot a wall telephone), and in two music-filled scenes, chamber performances of Kris Kristofferson’s 'Help Me Make It Through the Night' and the Rolling Stones’ 'As Tears Go By.' The well-layered score is further augmented by wonderfully resonant, bracketing song selections (of the non-diegetic kind) from Camille and Soap&Skin, whose 'Italy' gives anthemic heft to the stirringly conceived closing sequence."
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times 
"These acts of warmth towards the empress persist in moments of on-screen rebellion. While the film prefers to depict Sisi’s struggles without the accompaniment of musical score, it does employ a modern soundtrack to highlight her (small) acts of defiance against the royal system. Much like Sofia Coppola’s 'Marie Antoinette,' 'Corsage' juxtaposes the seriousness of the royal period piece with contemporary song. When Elisabeth successfully fakes a fainting spell to get out of a belittling royal commitment early in the film, French artist Camille’s 2011 track 'She Was' plays as she and her posse make their sneaky escape: 'When she was home / She was a swan / When she was out she was a tiger / And a tiger in the wild is not tied to anyone.' Not only does this choice of music help convey Kreutzer’s views on her protagonist, it assists in modernizing the empress’ plight and invites viewers to consider her with 21st century sensibilities."
Kathy Michelle Chacon, Paste Magazine 

"The soundtrack, too, colludes. The patriotic anthems and orchestral Viennese waltzes we might expect in a film about a 19th-century royal European court jostle with oddly moving covers of Kris Kristofferson’s 'Help Me Make It Through The Night' and Marianne Faithfull’s 'As Tears Go By.' These anachronisms are not as pronounced, nor as self-consciously hip, as the sneakers-and-Sex-Pistols vibe of Sofia Coppola’s 'Marie Antoinette,' and the drama is less archly melodramatic than in the other nearest comparison point, Pablo Larraín’s 'Spencer.' But then Kreutzer and Krieps (the executive producer and originator of the idea) are less interested in wholesale reimagining of history than in prodding at it here and there, to see if it will give a troubled, hamstrung woman a second chance."
Jessica Kiang, Variety 
"Indeed, without making a big fuss of it, there’s a strong sense throughout that the mostly female key crewmembers are pulling together to tell this woman-centric story through the lens of female identity -- from DP Judith Kaufmann, blending natural sunlight and defiantly anachronistic electric illumination with style throughout, to composer Camille, whose dreamy, drifty contemporary songs add a charming atmosphere."
Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter 
LIVING - Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch 
"With the magnitude of its creators, Living could have easily buckled under the pressure of its predecessors. The Ishiguro script, however, is deftly handled by director Oliver Hermanus, who tells what is ultimately a very simple, intimate tale with measured grace. The shots of London’s County Hall from cinematographer Jamie D. Ramsay, the well-tailored suits from costume designer (and 15-time Oscar nominee) Sandy Powell, and the delicate, string-infused score from Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch all contribute to the finely tuned perfection of the film. While its quaint, well-mannered, uplifting if melancholy tone may be reminiscent of other pleasing British fare like 'Downton Abbey,' 'The King’s Speech,' and 'Mrs. Harris Goes To Paris,' 'Living' offers more gravitas without ever feeling weighty."
Matthew Huff, The Onion AV Club 
"The sense of repression is heightened by the film’s self-consciously old-fashioned look, which asserts itself from the opening credits -- the grainy texture and elegant score mimic midcentury films so effectively that you might wonder for a moment if you’ve stepped into the wrong theater, or clicked on the wrong title. The predominating tone of 'Living' is one of dignified restraint, in Mr. Williams’ case to the point of self-erasure. In a gut-wrenching detail, on the rare occasions that Williams works up the courage to reveal his diagnosis with someone, he still can’t help prefacing it with 'It’s rather a bore, but …'"
Angie Habn, The Hollywood Reporter 

"'The Man in the Basement' sounds like a horror movie, doesn’t it? And that ominous title is well-matched by an edgy score, tense editing, and a tough-to-watch buildup of pressure. But in Philippe Le Guay’s sharp French drama it’s the dead who need rescuing and the living who must save them. What’s more, the only weapons used are words."
Elizabeth Weitzman, The Wrap 
"Le Guay effectively keeps the pressure on his characters and their loaded situation throughout, using ominous camera angles and anxious music cues to heighten the dread and uncertainty. He receives a fine assist from Renier and Cluzet, who commit to their divergent roles with unnerving intensity."
Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times 
MISSING - Julian Scherle
"However, if there's one small gripe to be made with Missing, it’s that if the film wants to present itself as a story told entirely through screens, the use of non-diegetic music is technically a cheat to this concept. Julian Scherle’s score is effective and plays with the audience’s tension is fun ways, but considering that we have Spotify, YouTube, and any other number of sites to listen to music, this seems like an easy fix for the film's only break from its concept."
Ross Bonaime, Collider 
"With Chaganty out of the picture for the 'Searching' franchise’s follow-up installment (aside from a lone story co-credit), dual directors Nicholas D. Johnson and Will Merrick, who both worked on 'Searching' as editors, now helm 'Missing.' Filmed in the same laptop and smartphone-bound style as the first film, Merrick and Johnson’s stylistic approach to the desktop movie format is strikingly different than Chaganty’s. With some liberties taken, Chaganty seemed to do his relative best to keep the computer screen as realistically cinematic as possible. Meaning what was made cinematic was kept largely within the confines of computer and smartphone functionality, with some added close-ups, zooms, and escalation of dramatic music that can’t help but seem funny when one is merely watching the click of a mouse. Merrick and Johnson play around more heavily with the rules that Chaganty created, doing more to purposefully make the film’s chosen format more exciting and movie-like. Doing so creates a film that is far busier, far more throwing, and often feels like it betrays the purpose of the format altogether."
Brianna Zigler, The Playlist 
"Unlike such earlier screenlife films as 'Unfriended' whose conceit is effectively that the story is comprised of unfiltered 'found' footage, there’s no reason that the film must be confined to a phone or computer monitor, especially since composer Julian Scherle provides a buzzing, fairly constant score to ratchet up the intensity, and Johnson and Merrick freely cut to external angles when it suits their needs. But in adhering to the notion that as much of the action as possible should be delivered via June’s devices, the filmmaking pair undercuts key payoffs by photographing them from dispassionate wide angles and then zooming in like they’re trying to make the best of grainy surveillance footage."
Todd Gilchrist, Variety
THE PRICE WE PAY - Aldo Shllaku
"Kitamura’s stylish direction, DP Matthias Schubert’s vivid, color-drenched images and a crunching score by Kitamura’s frequent collaborator Aldo Shllaku makes sure there’s barely a dull moment even in such familiar surrounds. We’ve been down this road before and we’ll go there again, but 'The Price We Pay' has enough gas in the tank to make the detour worthwhile."
Richard Kuipers, Variety 

RETROGRADE - H. Scott Salinas
"The scenes at Kabul Airport made the front pages of newspapers around the world. The footage in the documentary is terrifying and heart-rending. H. Scott Salinas' score is mournful, elegiac, and -- it goes without saying -- tremendously sad. When paired up with the faces of women, men, and children, where nerves and despair are almost on the surface of the skin, the full weight of the catastrophe unfolding is felt."
Sheila O'Malley, 
"In one of his more impressive gets, Heineman makes his way into a Taliban leadership meeting during which spooky music murmurs in the background as a firebrand riles up the crowd. As he rhapsodizes about the brutal aggressions of the power-hungry West, one might start to think the guy’s onto something, until he pins all the unrest on the machinations of those nefarious Jews. Nonetheless, the scene illustrates a crucial core of contradiction in the tangled web of motivations that fueled the past twenty years of disaster, a complicated grey area in which the opposite of the wrong thing isn’t necessarily right. Heineman’s thesis that because leaving has gone so poorly, staying would’ve necessarily been better is incorrect at best, and disingenuous at worst. He wants to think structurally, aware that America can and does flatten other nations beneath our clumsy footfalls. He just can’t -- or won’t -- see the whole structure out of apparent fear that it’ll be too unflattering for all involved, including him, the army’s useful launderer of their image-sanitizing talking points."
Charles Bramesco, The Playlist 

TANTURA - Ophir Leibovitch 
"As much as the film is about facts erased from history, it’s also about memory -- both individual and collective. It may not fully ruminate on the former, but composer Ophir Leibovitch imbues each recollection with a sense of painful gravitas, even if the words and images presented don’t quite live up to his sobering score."
Siddhant Adkalha, IndieWire 
"Some of those who agree to speak with Schwarz, now in their 90s, admit to having witnessed the crimes, but deny taking part in them. Others, emboldened perhaps by their advanced age, and more so by the impunity their status as heroes grants them, confess to the killings. An eerie score by Ophir Leibovitch accompanies their chilling accounts."
Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times
