La-La Land has announced two new releases due next week: an expanded two-disc edition of John Williams' score for Steven Spielberg's 1997 sequel THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK; and a two-disc edition of James Horner's lively score for the Russia-set 1983 mystery GORKY PARK, based on the bestseller by Martin Cruz Smith.


Varese Sarabande is expected to announce two new limited edition CD Club releases today.


The latest releases from Dragon's Domain are: LEE HOLDRIDGE DOCUMENTARIES: VOLUME 1, featuring the composer's music for The Sharks (1982), The Great Whales and Gold (both 1978); a disc pairing the music for two early Chuck Norris vehicles, GOOD GUYS WEAR BLACK, scored by Craig Safan, and the sci-fi/horror-tinged SILENT RAGE, music by Peter Bernstein and Mark Goldenberg; and THE DANIEL LICHT COLLECTION VOLUME 1, featuring the composer's scores for Acting on Impulse (1993) and Cabin by the Lake (2000).

Buysoundtrax is releasing THE BRUCE ROWLAND COLLECTION: VOLUME ONE, featuring cues from the composer's scores such as The Man from Snowy River, Andre, and Zeus and Roxanne.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

THE DEEPEST BREATH - Nainita Desai
 
"'Don’t take a dive for granted; You don’t know which dive will be your last,' a talking head says ominously at one point in the documentary. That’s perhaps one of the rare times 'The Deepest Breath' feels genuinely honest, not trying to mask its perils with luminous images, 'courageous' notions of risk, and a majestically soaring score (one that’s both genuinely gorgeous and employed with dubious influence)."
 
Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist 
 
"As a pure adrenaline-rush experience, however, 'The Deepest Breath' is hard to argue with, coming closer than might seem possible to conveying the exhilaration and/or terror of descending further than the length of a football field into infinite aqua. Editor Julian Cragg and DP Tim Cragg -- aided by a veritable army of underwater lensers -- make seamless work of bridging authentic in-the-moment footage and reconstructions: What could have been a murky journey is instead shaped by an awareness of vast space, varying liquid light and caverns of silence, except when Nainita Desai’s surging, sometimes suitably head-pounding score fills the void. For most viewers, this remote but near-tangible experience will be sufficient; for anyone yearning to take a dive themselves, the doc braids the cautionary and the cathartic."
 
Guy Lodge, Variety

"It’s a sport that is remarkably good at documenting itself, and although Tim Cragg is the credited cinematographer, the documentary is composed of footage shot by more underwater photographers and above-water social media chroniclers than I could count. You may not fully understand why Alessia and Stephen do what they do, any more or less than you understood Alex Honnold’s desire to scale sheer cliffs without ropes or harnesses, but the footage catches Alessia and Stephen in so many different forms of jubilation and desolation that you can at least empathize with the extremes they crave. Nainita Desai’s sweeping score drowns out any remaining viewer uncertainty, though McGann is very careful to deliver the underwater scenes with no music at all -- just breathing, heartbeats and otherworldly silence."
 
Daniel Feinberg, The Hollywood Reporter 

HYPNOTIC [2021] - Nathan Matthew David
 
"'Hypnotic' gets no edge from its visual style, which is proudly 'Netflix-thriller-of-the-week.' It boasts fancy modern home interiors, a thumping synth score, and the overall gloss of a feature-length TV episode. Only briefly does the movie disorient the viewer with its visuals, and it’s when Angel and Coote throw some screen-splitting, split-diopter shots that indicate vanishing daydreams of taking after the thrillers of Brian De Palma. One wonders what he might have done with the premise; we can at least trust he’d let the tarantula stay home."
 
Nick Allen, The Playlist 
 
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - DEAD RECKONING PART ONE - Lorne Balfe

"McQuarrie has always been a sophisticated screenwriter (he won an Oscar for 'The Usual Suspects)', but he’s become an action director of real chops, too. Propelled by Lorne Balfe’s beefy score, 'Dead Reckoning' is operatic and muscular, with locations (Rome and Venice, especially) that park IMF tanks on James Bond’s lawn and set pieces so huge, high-paced and helter-skelter, you worry the film might pull something."
 
Phil de Semlyen, Time Out 
 
"In terms of sheer entertainment, the movie has plenty to offer. Editor Eddie Hamilton keeps his foot on the accelerator with breathless pacing, and cinematographer Fraser Taggart’s dynamic camerawork keeps the visuals fluid and exciting. Much of the propulsion is also due to Lorne Balfe’s pounding score, incorporating a thunderous remix of the classic Lalo Schifrin TV theme music."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 

RETURN TO DUST - Peyman Yazdanian

"Economically and emotionally marginalized people shunted to and fro by a largely indifferent society, if not outright hostile to them, and find some comfort and solace in each other while weathering the blows they’re obliged to take until the blows stop (they generally don’t), or the ones getting the blows give out -- this, of course, was the stuff of many pictures from the not-quite-movement called Italian neo-realism. 'Return to Dust' has more in common with films of that ilk than classic U.S. portraits of deprivation like 'The Grapes of Wrath.' But the director departs from Western practice entirely by not making any overt move to tear at the viewer’s heartstrings. The music score is muted. The film avoids close-ups or blatantly manipulative montages. It’s quiet, but it’s not quite 'Slow Cinema.'"
 
Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com 
 
"Indeed this pair are possibly the least self-pitying people on earth. Yoked together without much say in the matter, they quickly get to work on their small patch of land. The almost procedural interest Li has in the farming process provides some of the film’s most oddly mesemerizing sequences: Cao, sitting on the plow so that the plowshare bites deeper under her weight; Ma laying out mud bricks in a spiral to dry, or hand-scything wheat at harvest time. These scenes are also elevated by DP Wang Weihua’s camerwork, which finds grace and dignity in hard work, without overly romancing it. Exteriors are wide, with the couple often dwarfed by the natural world, interiors are warm despite their shabbiness. When Ma fashions an incubator for chicks from a cardboard box, the speckled, mirrorball effect of the light spilling out is subtly magical, cues picked up in the lovely score from Peyman Yazdanian."
 
Jessica Kiang, Variety 
 
"With gentle brushstrokes and a gaze that becomes almost imperceptibly more intimate, Li observes Ma’s first acts of kindness toward Guiying, who seemingly has known only humiliation and loneliness. It’s at that point, too, that the first notes of Peyman Yazdanian’s lovely string score are introduced. Guiying slowly begins reciprocating her husband’s care, concern and trust as he works tirelessly, sharing his deep knowledge of farming. While staying temporarily in various abandoned houses, they haul water to make mud bricks to build their own home. Ma carefully removes and rehangs the red 'double happiness' symbol for newlyweds each time they relocate."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 

VIOLET - VUM

"The first half hour or so of this approach feels exciting, but it soon grows repetitive and tiresome as Violet navigates a series of particularly stressful days, both personally and professionally. Munn subtly indicates the simmering panic of her character’s inner state, and how that anguish contrasts with her placid exterior. She’s fragile and jittery -- you can feel her forcing the smiles between air kisses at Hollywood parties. The edgy strings of the score from Vum magnify the tension she’s feeling."
 
Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com 

"A defiantly uneasy score from VUM only increases the tension, until the entire screen washes red. Meanwhile, the person Violet is talking to thinks they’re still having a friendly and casual conversation, with no idea of the battleground we’ve just seen raging inside her head."
 
Elizabeth Weitzman, The Wrap 
 
"At particularly self-defeating moments for her protagonist, writer-director Justine Bateman injects flashing images of disaster, violence and decomposing animals. The screen might go red and the score, by Los Angeles electronic-rock trio Vum, might deepen its groan. It doesn’t take long to catch on to this multichannel narrative scheme, with its disturbing visuals and conflicting voices. But you might soon hear an additional voice -- the one in your head wondering where the self-improvement earnestness leaves off and the satire begins, if at all, and just what to make of Violet herself. Is she an emblematic figure or one we’re supposed to take at face value?"
 
Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
