BEFORE, NOW & THEN - Ricky Lionardi

"The dynamic between husband and wife is such that, when presented with evidence of her husband’s infidelity, Nana has little recourse but to maintain appearances and act as though nothing has happened -- 'I must be like water,' she says to herself in a kind of soliloquy/pep talk, adapting to the environment rather than pushing back against it. She may run the household, but not her own life. If all this sounds a tad conventional so far, it’s only because you haven’t been treated to the string-heavy score of composer Ricky Lionardi and the staticky radio songs that accompany cinematographer Batara Goempar’s occasional slow-motion indulgences -- aesthetic flourishes that betray Wong Kar-Wai’s influence on 'Before, Now & Then' and elevate it from bog-standard festival fare to the intoxicating sensory experience it is."
Michael Nordine, Variety 
"The plot, with its clandestine meetings and sudden reappearances of characters thought dead, is essentially melodrama, but told with sly obliqueness and high cinematic style. Composer Ricky Lionnardi’s swooning, string-forward score, all tango syncopation and plucked notes, owes a huge debt to Michael Galasso and Shigeru Umebayashi’s indelible soundtrack for Wong Kar-Wai’s 'In the Mood for Love,' with choice vintage needle drops from Indonesian popular music of the time. (Please release a soundtrack or at least a playlist somewhere.)"
Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter
BLUE BEETLE - Bobby Krlic
"Still, we don’t call it a 'formula' because it doesn’t work. After so many years of increasingly elaborate superhero films that get caught up in crossovers and setting the stage for bigger sequels, it’s refreshing to get back to basics and tell a familiar story in a fresh and exciting way. The cast that director Angel Manuel Soto ('Charm City Kings') has assembled breathes new life into some of the old clichés, and the memorable retrowave electronic score by Bobby Krlic ('Midsommar') goes a long way towards giving 'Blue Beetle' its distinct personality."
William Bibbiani, The Wrap 

"The lack of concern that 'Blue Beetle' shows for these topics is absolutely deadening, even in a somewhat kid-friendly summer tentpole that clearly aspires to the energy of a Saturday morning from its opening shots. So far as that ambition is concerned, this movie is an unqualified success, as it starts with Sarandon hopping out of a military helicopter somewhere in the Arctic and asking her bionic henchman -- Raoul Max Trujillo as the indestructible and flawlessly named Conrad Carapax -- if they’ve found the mysterious thingy she’s been searching for all these years as the camera looks up at a giant egg of some kind and 'Midsommar' composer Bobby Krlic plays a million different synths at the same time over the soundtrack."
David Ehrlich, IndieWire

"The movie technically takes place within the winding-down DCEU, and though fans will notice some verbal and visual references to that fact, the half-futuristic border town of Palmera City is more the setting than any broader comic-book universe (though the climax, unfortunately, is largely consigned to a nondescript Bad Guy Base). Soto ('Charm City Kings') seems determined to carve out some manner of stylistic identity for his heroes, frequently utilizing blue, purple and pink neon to light up sets that might otherwise look drab, and foregrounding a churning ’80s-fantasy synth score from Bobby Krlic. It’s a smaller but still-potent dose of what set James Wan’s fantasy-adventure 'Aquaman' apart."
Jesse Hassenger, Paste Magazine 
"Aided by the dynamic cinematography of regular Ari Aster collaborator Pawel Pogorzelski, a pulsing electronic score by Brit musician Bobby Krlic and sturdy effects work, Soto brings an assured hand, balancing action with character-driven scenes and comedy with suspense throughout. The pacing is brisk, infused with youthful energy, but never so frenetic that it doesn’t allow intimate exchanges time to breathe, particularly the touching moments between Jaime and his dad, which resonate right up until the final scenes. It’s the space given to the Reyes family that makes the movie so enjoyable."
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

BOTTOMS - Charli XCX, Leo Birenberg
"The movie features needle drops aplenty, including a very comedic use of the karaoke staple, Bonnie Tyler’s 'Total Eclipse of the Heart,' and extra modern beats provided by Leo Birenberg and Charli XCX. It’s one silly bit after another, like candies rolling off a conveyor belt."
Monica Castillo, 

FREMONT - Mahmod Schricker
"Donya floats through her days with little stimulation or decision, a stringent routine followed by a lackluster evening of wakefulness. The film’s sound design holds a sharp presence that absorbs us within her world. 'Fremont' is quiet, and its silence has a reason, holding the weight and impact of conversations in the film’s dialogue-heavy format. From deep breaths to fingers tapping on desks, the occupancy of a character in a scene is often the only sound we’re afforded. When the score is present, its inclusion is resonant, marking a moment of uncertainty or transition." 
Peyton Robinson, 

"Despite trafficking in a wide array of Sundance tropes -- from its modest but ethereal monochrome cinematography by DP Laura Valladao, to Mahmood Schricker’s Sqürl-adjacent guitar score -- 'Fremont' is always more delicate than it is precious and mercifully never quite as cute as it sounds."
David Ehrlich, IndieWire

"Tom Stern’s cinematography is gorgeous, especially in the amber rays of daytime; the film certainly doesn’t look cheap. And Bear McCreary’s score impresses (he was tasked to replace Thomas Newman, who had to drop out) — folk fiddles give way to modernist groans and creaks as Drac’s presence becomes known, aided by vocalist Raya Yarbrough’s siren-like wails."
Clint Worthington, Consequence of Film 

"Despite the skill he’s displayed in previous work like 'The Autopsy of Jane Doe,' the 'Trollhunter' director is completely at Poseidon’s mercy on this one, as his instinct for shlock rubs against a story that calls for a classicist’s touch (the inverse is also true, which makes for an unintentionally hilarious scene where CGI Dracula tries to pass himself off as a posh British gentleman). Location shooting and an ominous Bear McCreary score bring a whiff of flavor to the early scenes on dry land, but the movie begins to take on water from the moment the Demeter sets sail, as Øvredal fails to shape the musty wooden bowels of the ship into a character of their own, or to do anything else that might help texture the killings to come (there are a few errant hints as to how the Demeter’s hollow planks could have come alive, but they go mostly unexploited)."
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 
"Despite this unevenness, there’s a lot to love in 'The Last Voyage Of The Demeter' for horror fans and casual moviegoers alike. Even when it’s listing back and forth like a ship adrift, there’s always something to grab onto and steady the vessel, whether it’s the creature effects or the production design or the wonderful soundscape that blends the creaking and groaning of the ship with Bear McCreary’s atmospheric score. The whole thing plays, predictably, like 'Alien' on a boat with Dracula as the alien, and while it’s not quite as satisfying as that masterpiece, 'The Last Voyage Of The Demeter' is still worth the trip. It’s been a century, but Dracula is still a potent movie monster, and this film proves we haven’t run out of ways to use him yet."
Matthew Jackson, The Onion AV Club
MADELEINE COLLINS - Romain Trouillet
"Berraud’s juggling a few themes here -- that of the varied roles we’re compelled to take on in life, here pushed to hard limits, and that of the difficulty of being a woman, a popular topic these days. Between the prologue and how the movie’s narrative grows more frantic -- not to mention the use of Romain Trouillet's music that owes a lot to Hitchcock-era Bernard Herrmann -- Berraud wants to push this material into the realm of something like a suspense thriller. It doesn’t quite work, especially given the reveal of what drove Efira’s character to her deceits, which, while meant to be heartstring-pulling, plays as rather more banal than one might have expected."
Glenn Kenny, 
THE POD GENERATION - Evgueni Galperine, Sacha Galperine

"This plays out to a prominent score by Sacha Galperine and Evgueni Galperine that has the feeling of a computer-generated playlist set to 'placid and blissful,' though it drops in enough itchy little high notes to suggest that not all is well in paradise."
Steve Pond, The Wrap 
"Since Rachel and Alvy only ever feel like constructs, not characters, it’s predictable that their attitudes would reverse once their zygote is encased in egg-shaped plastic. Rachel begins to chafe at not feeling the fetus, a mood which leads to decreased productivity at work, while Alvy sparks to the worry and joy of looking after the gurgling pod. This shift should feel chunky and momentous, rich in the comic tension of a feminist ideal about equitable parenting hampered by a technology-fostered impasse. But in Barthes’ curiously distanced, muted handling, we only sense points being made, not lives being lived -- as if we were peering into a visually sleek diorama (where Clement Price-Thomas’ production design impresses but the twee music-box score from Evgueni and Sacha Galperine irritates)."
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"That said, it’s certainly watchable -- made with a great deal of polish in the architecture and design details of Clement Price-Thomas’ sets and shot by Andrij Parekh in the soft tones of a world built to be reassuringly sterile. There’s an understated whimsical quality in much of Evgueni and Sacha Galperine’s electronic score, which occasionally recalls the work of French duo Air with Sofia Coppola. But for all the movie’s quite credible conjecture about technology rendering nature obsolete and procreation becoming the privilege of the wealthy, 'The Pod Generation' never fully hatches."
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

A TASTE OF HUNGER  - Anthony Lledo, Mikkel Maltha 
"Director Christoffe Boe certainly recognizes the gravity of the story he is presenting us, which gets the audience prepared for the level of high drama to come throughout the film’s 90-plus-minute runtime. He presents this tale like an epic, with a sweeping score and a perfect opening quote to set the scene: 'If you ask me what I want, I’ll say I want everything.' This movie is about the quest for the perfect love, the perfect career and the perfect life, and Boe’s choices make it clear that this situation sits close to life or death. We feel the severity."
Lex Briscuso, Paste Magazine 

"Schroeder and Stechschulte don’t leave the audience hanging with 'Ultrasound.' By the closing credits, we do learn why the characters seem so out of sync with their own reality. Without giving too much away, the movie’s title does matter, referring to a frequency that can be weaponized to manipulate people’s minds. (Zak Engel’s synth-heavy score works well with Bobb Barito’s disorienting sound design to replicate the effect.)"
Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times 

"Cohen, who turned in a solid first feature last year with 'Crush,' has a gift for amplifying teenage angst and anxieties in a way that doesn’t condescend or pander to its target market, and doesn’t offend its adult audience. Cohen continues to mature in visual dexterity, utilizing squeeze zooms, fantastical asides and fluid camera pans to root us in the protagonist’s psyche. To indicate Stacy’s world being rattled post-betrayal, cinematographer Ben Hardwicke turns down the brightness on the saturated-color palette almost imperceptibly. Brian Robinson’s edits provide a crisp electricity and comedic timing, most notably in the frenzied sequence where Stacy ruthlessly cobbles together Lydia’s entrance video, overlapping images at a brisk pace. Este Haim and Amanda Yamate’s score gives scenes warmth and a propulsive drive."
Courtney Howard, Variety
