La-La Land has announced two new film music releases due in June -- THE MUNSTERS: TELEVISION MUSIC OF JACK MARSHALL, a two-disc set also featuring the composer's music for the series The Deputy, The Virginian and Wagon Train; and an expanded version of Ryuichi Sakamoto's score for the 1992 remake of WUTHERING HEIGHTS, which paired Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche four years before The English Patient.
The latest releases from Quartet are Alberto Iglesias' score for EXTRANA FORMA DE VIDA (STRANGE WAY OF LIFE), the 30-minute short directed by Pedro Almodovar and starring Pedro Pascal and Ethan Hawke, which just screened at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival; Ken Thorne's score for the 1971 Western HANNIE CAULDER, starring Raquel Welch, Robert Culp, Ernest Borgnine and Christopher Lee; Fernando Velazquez' score for the new Mexican comedy-Western EL PODEROSO VICTORIA; and an expanded edition of Angelo Francesco Lavagnino's score for the 1968 Western REQUIEM PER UN GRINGO.

EVIL DEAD RISE - Stephen McKeon
"Magnifying every moment of tension and terror is the immersive sound design by Peter Albrechtsen and distressed orchestral score by Stephen McKeon, both of whom weave unsettling vocals into the aural tapestry of the film."
Jen Yamato, Los Angeles Times

"But despite the inclusion of several touchstones and rousing musical cues (such as the classic theme track 'Pegasus Fantasy') as part of Yoshihiro Ike’s score, Baginski fails to convey the muscular lyricism that characterized the anime, where every confrontation brimmed with devastating gravitas and high stakes that not only engrossed but moved the viewer. The brotherhood among Athena’s knights was also left on the drawing board, presumably in expectation of being able to tackle it in a sequel that likely won’t happen."
Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times 


"The film was shot with a quicksilver freshness by Benoît Delhomme. There are no stately shots; there is nothing formal or slow. Instead, there's lots of handheld camera work, lots of lens flares, and the camera chasing after Connie as she jumps across the green fields. The woods where Connie and Oliver meet up are a primeval forest, where everything -- even the light -- has a tactile quality. Isabella Summers' score enhances emotions instead of underlining them."
Sheila O'Malley, 

"As the infidelity plot barrels toward its reckoning with class prejudice, and the moody, thumping cello returns to Isabella Summers’ strings-centered score, Corrin’s vibrant performance keeps us engaged. But so does Joely Richardson -- a one-time Lady Chatterley herself (star of the aforementioned ‘90s serial) -- this time around playing empathetic mine widow Mrs. Bolton, and Duckett’s portrait of uncaring ruling class prejudice carries the right mix of cluelessness and anger. The sex in this 'Lady Chatterley’s Lover' may only be so-so this time around, but there’s no denying when Connie tells off her husband about his callous treatment of everyone; in this day and age of terrible bossmen, that counts as a climax."
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times 
"But they certainly mean something sacred to Lady Constance Chatterley, played spiritedly by Emma Corrin (Princess Diana of 'The Crown') in a performance of feathery grace. With her young head in the clouds and heart fluttering with romance, completely unaware of the type of tale she’s leading, you can see in her glowingly lit face that she means every blissful word of her matrimonial pledge to Lord Clifford (Matthew Duckett), a square nobleman soon to be shipped back to the Great War. Her exuberance is matched only by Isabella Summers’ light-headed, classically beautiful score of high-pitched piano keys, just as plucky as Connie is...Luckily, Summers’ score fills in for those gaps through renewed musical cues grandly intensifying with modern atonal touches and chromatic swells. And Clermont-Tonnerre sharpens her handle elsewhere, shrewdly and sensually honoring Connie’s longing gaze and moments of immense post-coital pleasure, with an organic eye for nature that often plays host to the lovers’ forbidden rendezvous. The psychological and pastoral sensitivity at the heart of Clermont-Tonnerre’s quiet epic 'The Mustang' very much charges 'Lady Chatterley’s Lover,' too, with elements like mud, mist and rain coating Connie and Mellors’ naked bodies with a freeing sense of ecstasy."
Tomris Laffly, The Wrap 

"In the end, the couple’s chemistry is off the charts, and that’s all that matters -- though there’s still a too-tasteful David Hamilton-like quality to it all. Maybe it’s all the plein-air lovemaking, or the way Isabella Summers’ piano-and-strings score is constantly swelling itself into a tizzy. The novel is enormously critical of industry and all that is modern while showing enormous respect for nature. Clifford deserves to be cuckolded in part because he exploits his workers, and a sequence in which his electric wheelchair can’t make it up the hill nicely captures how ill-suited he is to the outdoors."
Peter Debruge, Variety 
SLUMBERLAND - Pinar Toprak
"Pinar Toprak’s score channels thematic wit and whimsy, feeling playful and poignant, soaring and sentimental, revealing and resourceful. Jo Willems’ enchanting cinematography pushes a saturated color scale and palette, bursting with life, capturing blossoming dream states like pop art. Combined with Dominic Watkins’ production design and Trish Summerville’s costume design, it becomes a sumptuous symphony in these vibrant environments, borrowing aesthetic aspiration from the likes of Pushing Daisies and Men In Black to augment the picture’s tonal bandwidth and sentimental scope."
Courtney Howard, The Onion AV Club
