The latest release from Caldera presents David Shire's music for the 1974 TV movie KILLER BEES, co-starring screen legend Gloria Swanson and directed by thriller specialist Curtis Harrington (What's the Matter with Helen?). The disc also includes music Shire composed for two other '70s TV movies - Harpy (1971), and Isn't It Shocking? (1973), a dark comedy-thriller which was an early project from Shire's Yale buddy, director John Badham, who would reunite with Shire for Saturday Night Fever and Short Circuit.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

THE BEASTS - Olivier Arson

"The best scenes play out in the local tavern where the villagers congregate and litigate grudges over games of dominos. Cinematographer Alex de Pablo’s camera pans Antoine and the Xan, charting their steady journey from neighbours to antagonists. Bursts of Olivier Arson’s percussive score drumbeats them towards an inevitable explosion of violence."
 
Phil de Semlyen, Time Out 
 
"It helps that Sorogoyen has found the year’s best villain in longtime collaborator Zahera, who transforms himself into a hostile creature, glowering at Antoine and taunting him with insults (Xan calls his neighbor 'Francés,' translated here as 'Frenchy,' mocking the outsider’s accent) over a nerve-racking game of dominoes … and every subsequent time their paths cross. Zahera’s menacing body language, matched by an anxious string score and arm’s-length camerawork -- as if even DP Alejandro de Pablo is wary of getting too close -- establishes a sense of dread so acute and pervasive it can be hard for audiences to breathe at times."
 
Peter Debruge, Variety 

BROTHER - Todor Kobakov
 
"Todor Kobakov’s spellbinding score glues the film’s emotional display to its stunning visuals. Played over meditative moments, the music brings 'Brother' down to earth while warm versus cool color schemes paint the screen with damning dissonance. No feeling in 'Brother' goes unfelt; every element of its filmmaking taps into the heart. As Michael navigates his memory, trying to reconcile ideas of masculinity against unforgiving circumstances, a study erupts: that of the spirit’s resolve and the immortality of familial love. 'Brother' is a portrait of Black youth pitted against forces beyond their control."
 
Peyton Robinson, RogerEbert.com 
 
"Virgo has cited 'Moonlight' and 'If Beale Street Could Talk' as two of his movie’s biggest touchstones, and the lessons that 'Brother' has gleaned from Barry Jenkins’ example are as poignant and iterative as those Michael takes from Francis, particularly insofar as its use of operatic camerawork and a lush orchestral score to defy the gravity of its story’s downward pull. 'Brother' is littered with many of the hardships that you might expect from a hard-nosed drama about young Black men growing up in an overpoliced low-income housing complex, but Virgo doesn’t allow the familiarity of oppression to flatten the specificity of his characters. The cops are a constant threat, but they’re often blurred into the background or framed out of the picture like the grown-ups in a Charlie Brown cartoon. Gang violence plays a similarly crucial role, but only as an avenue towards exploring the finer points of Francis’ masculinity."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 
 
DEAD & BEAUTIFUL - Rutger Reinders
 
"'Dead & Beautiful' lacks narrative bite but never lacks visual appeal. Verbeek, who has made several films in Taiwan, and cinematographer Jasper Wolf ('Monos') bring all the sheen and gloss of a high-end fashion commercial to depictions of the protagonist’s luxurious lifestyle in glitzy nightclubs and expensive restaurants. Wolf’s framing of the vampire clique prowling through eerily deserted streets and in later scenes in a seaside location bring a hypnotic other-worldliness to the tale. Monica Petit’s eye-catching costumes and a sleek electronic score by Rutger Reinders round out the film’s top-notch packaging."
 
Richard Kupiers, Variety
 
EARTH MAMA - Kelsey Liu
 
"There are certain threads that 'Earth Mama' regretfully doesn’t investigate -- namely, how does this country’s largely for-profit adoption system (and the oft-wealthy families it favors) contribute to this ongoing issue? -- but what it achieves is nothing short of illuminating. Cinematographer Jody Lee Lipes does stunning work here, evoking a staggering emotional undercurrent from even Nomore’s most subdued of gazes. Cellist and composer Kelsey Liu’s string-heavy score is enchanting and at times intentionally discordant, communicating the fraying and frenzied tangle of anxiety pulsing just under Gia’s stony exterior. While womanhood does not inherently breed maternal instincts, it is imperative to interrogate why working-class women of color are on such unequal footing compared to their wealthy, white counterparts. Again, it would have been fascinating to see how Leaf unpacked her family’s own relative privilege within these systems. But this heartfelt elegy, born from an encounter in Leaf’s past, is a beautiful artistic exercise in its own right."
 
Natalia Keogan, Paste Magazine
 
"Taking advantage of the film's Bay Area setting, Leaf neatly places moments of Gia, often naked, adrift and blank in a redwood forest throughout the movie. The images are elliptical, foreshadowing some kind of epochal rebeginning or rebirth, with a dreamy, menacing sounscape from musician Kelsey Lu."
 
Ryan Lattanzio, IndieWire

8-BIT CHRISTMAS - Joseph Trapanese
 
"This time next year, we should have a much better idea of the NCU -- the Nintendo Cinematic Universe. If you’re a fan of video games or bizarre casting news you also might have heard about the upcoming 'Super Mario Bros.' movie, starring Chris Pratt as Mario, and co-starring Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong. As part of this Nintendo cultural wave comes Michael Dowse's '8-Bit Christmas,' an innocent but tedious Yuletide time-killer that's all about wanting a Nintendo NES console. That’s one of many half-realized details in this sentimental piece of product placement that then weakly apes some John Hughes energy, mostly with some offhand references to Illinois culture, and a score from Joseph Trapanese that seems primed to break out into John Williams’ 'Somewhere in My Memory.'"
 
Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com
 
INDIA SWEETS AND SPICES - Ceiri Torjussen
 
"'India Sweets and Spices' is shot and scored more like a Lifetime movie than a theatrical release, but it’s easy to look past its basic aesthetic to the deeper film beneath. The wit in Malik’s script is a match for Ali’s lively, often sarcastic delivery, proving an excellent fit between the lead actress and the material. Warmth and intelligence -- and a strong sense of both fun and feminism -- make Malik’s film worth a watch, and rising star Ali is worth keeping an eye on as well."
 
Kimber Myers, Los Angeles Times 
 
THE LESSON - Isobel Waller-Bridge
 
"'The Lesson' not only has a tremendous, eerie score by Isobel Waller-Bridge, but contains phenomenal, understated performances from its cast. Richard E. Grant is simultaneously restrained and unhinged in his role, wielding Sinclair’s bitterness and arrogance like a sword as he lashes out, slowly unraveling as the film goes on. Grant casts a powerful shadow over everything, controlling and manipulating everyone around him, but gives Sinclair room to unravel. Daryl McCormack (who was in last year’s acclaimed 'Good Luck To You, Leo Grande') is able to balance outward respectability with eagerness and frustration. It’s nuanced and tempered, and the outcome of his performance benefits the finale greatly, and he expertly bounces off of Grant’s portrayal. Delpy, though she gets less to do, plays the long game in terms of Helene’s role. She’s distant and seemingly cold, but she’s patient and calculated as well, and it’s lovely to witness the myriad of emotions that swiftly play across her face."
 
Mae Abdulbaki, Screen Rant 

"But in the thoroughly capable hands of Grant, Delpy and McCormack, whose interplay has been playfully choreographed to the 1-2-3 tempo of a waltz-infused score by composer Isobel Waller-Bridge (Phoebe’s sister), the film proves as pleasingly undemanding as a typical summer read: neither a legit page-turner, nor easy to put down."
 
Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times 

THE SUMMIT OF THE GODS - Amine Bouhafa
 
"The same holds true for the people watching along from home, as Imbert’s film gradually strips back every layer of character and conflict until its summit push is a wordless spectacle that follows two distant climbers up towards the heavens -- distant from us and from each other. It’s here, in these more high-altitude and less high-minded passages that 'The Summit of the Gods'' reaches the peak of its power, as the lush 2D animation indulges in the kind of ecstatically true vistas that live action would never allow, while Amine Bouhafa’s gorgeous and beguiling score makes every step feel like a spiritual proposition before exploding into an avalanche of synths. The combination results in an almost subliminal unreality that amounts to something between a documentary and a dream. This world is logical, and also not."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire
 
TALK TO ME - Cornel Wilczek
 
"And the horror, when it hits, hits with visceral intensity. Anyone who’s ever seen a RackaRacka horror short knows how well the Philippou brothers can craft a surprising scare, and those scares emerge with real ferocity in 'Talk to Me.' From ghosts suddenly appearing once the code phrase is spoken in a séance to quick eruptions of human violence, 'Talk to Me' is a very scary film, but the gags are about more than delivering on jumpscare thrills and outbursts of creative, chaotic gore. That’s all there, and it’s delivered with a real attention to craft, but what really makes the film work is the way 'Talk to Me' creates an atmosphere of coiled-spring dread. Energetic camerawork from Aaron McLisky, atmospheric soundscapes from Cornel Wilczek, and of course the nightmarish feeling that any one of these character could unspool at any second all come together to deliver a film that’s always teetering on the brink, threatening to spill over into full-on madness."
 
Matthew Jackson, Paste Magazine 

"Fully realized through clever editing and music choices (from Geoff Lamb and Cornel Wilczek), 'Talk To Me' is an adolescent tale of desperation, desire, and destruction -- a simple yet effective horror film that instills a sense of dread that never truly dissipates."
 
Lauren Coates, The Onion AV Club 
 
WAR PONY - Christopher Stracey, Mato Wahuyi
 
"You can’t say the story has a happy ending, but its energy revs up to a doomy, almost hallucinatory pitch as a Halloween party turns bad for everyone involved. Christopher Stracey and Mato Wayuhi’s music plays a crucial role here, and in the aftermath we also get a bracing visit from 'Come and Get Your Love,' the 1974 hit that made Redbone the first Native American band to hit the Top 5 on the Billboard charts."
 
Steve Pond, The Wrap
