DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

ABANDONED - Michelle Osis
 
"Each phantasmal element is eventually dialed up to 11, setting up a murderous, Jack Torrance-ish finale that sadly never comes. (The film’s actual ending -- upbeat but reactionary -- is sure to lose as many audiences as it wins over.) Instead, the film stays in its singular, elemental mode, cycling through the various noises and apparitions, only with more flickering lights (the usual 'Why does nobody turn a damn light on around here?' syndrome), more preternatural visits, and with an increasingly hyperactive string accompaniment. Which is all to say that it quickly exhausts its key ideas. And you can hear the warning shot during the first act when Squire tries to add to his delicate chamber piece a play-within-a-play involving Alex’s troubles euthanizing a litter of sick pigs; the parallels of this side story to the broader plot are so undisguised as to be uninteresting, and the turmoil and tension of his planning and then firing the bolt gun is subdued, to say the least."
 
Oliver Weir, The Playlist 

CASSANDRO - Marcelo Zarvos

"Embellished with bold makeup and encased in glitzy costumes, the exóticos’ unabashed showiness is a bright light in this dingy, testosterone-y environment. In a beautifully subtle shot that -- set to the romantic horns of Marcelo Zarvos’ score -- follows Saúl’s gaze to one such performer, they transfix Saúl’s attention and, in doing so, suggest to him a possible way out of his go-nowhere rut."
 
Nick Schager, The Daily Beast 
 
"Oscar winner Roger Ross Williams (“Life, Animated”) not only knows it, but possesses special insights into Cassandro’s story, having profiled “The Man Without a Mask” Saúl Armendáriz for his 2016 short film of the same name. Thanks to the dream casting of Mexican star Gael García Bernal as “the Liberace of Lucha Libre,” “Cassandro” arrives with a kind of instant credibility, which Williams protects by eschewing any sign of camp, opting instead for stately, respectful cinematography and a wistful horn score from composer Marcelo Zarvos. The director downplays the effete character’s flashy sense of showmanship (to a degree), instructing costume designer Mariestela Fernández not to overdo it with the sequins. As with the troweled-on mascara in “The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” being accurate might actually have been less believable.
 
Peter Debruge, Variety 

CLARA SOLA - Ruben De Gheselle
 
"If Clara threatens to implode under the strain, it’s not for lack of strength. Araya’s performance is so riveting because her wracked physicality allows the character to appear both helpless and indomitable all at once, equal parts hunched and coiled, something fawn-like but feral. That same animistic volatility is suffused into the atmosphere of a film that calls frequent attention to Carla’s connection with nature, as Sophie Winqvist Loggins’ semi-delirious handheld cinematography and Ruben De Gheselle’s trembling violin score combine to suggest that Carla is being seduced back to the earth -- that she’s gradually rejecting the mortal world that had always rejected her in return."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 

"At first, the movie connects with that stillness; it sits back and quietly observes, with little or no music for long stretches. When the music does come in, it’s usually spare: plucked strings and little else. The look and feel of the film is grounded in earth and mud and bugs and rain, but there’s also a gentle mysticism at work that’s familiar to lovers of South and Central American cinema."
 
Steve Pond, The Wrap 

THE CREATOR - Hans Zimmer
 
"If 'The Creator' feels too bluntly obvious about all its aforementioned cinematic influences -- and it might to some audiences -- there are still many compelling elements worth aweing over on top of its scale/ a brilliantly engaging score by composer Hans Zimmer, and beautifully grimy and lo-lit photography by Greig Fraser ('The Batman,' ‘Rogue One,’ 'Dune') and his apprentice Oren Soffe. Fraser left the project midway because of his obligations to 'Dune: Part Two,' and in truth, was only present during pre-production, but the film unquestionably smacks of his distinct chiaroscuro style.
 
Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist

"And yet 'The Creator' -- like 'Godzilla' before it, and even 'Rogue One' to a certain extent -- is redeemed by the pyrrhic victories of Edwards’ post-human vision as much as it’s lifted by the majesty of his forward-thinking technique. Yes, it helps that the director has a classic eye for staging action, that he gives his movies room to breathe, and that he knows that the perfect 'Kid A' needle-drop (the album, not the song) can do more for a story about the next iteration of 'human' life than any of the tracks from Hans Zimmer’s score."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 

"To his massive credit, 'The Creator' looks stunning: Edwards and his team of designers have built a world that feels only two steps removed from our own, filled with eye-catching designs for everything from handguns to hovercraft to the robots themselves. Co-cinematographers Greig Fraser and Oren Soffer soak the world in moody shadow blended with grounded, gritty realism (as per Fraser’s work on 'Rogue One' and 'The Batman'). Hans Zimmer’s score is appropriately booming and Zimmeresque, though it doesn’t quite escape the wall-of-sound feel of many of his previous blockbuster works."
 
Clint Washington, Consequence

"However, after narrowly escaping capture while hiding out with Joshua’s old military buddy Drew (Sturgill Simpson), the two fugitives get thrust into some wayward plotting in a final act that builds to heartrending sacrifice and a ridiculously cloying romantic closing image. It’s in these climactic scenes especially that Edwards’ sophisticated world-building skills run up against his weakness for movie-ish hokum, syrupy emotion and philosophical platitudes, the latter emphasized by the soaring choral passages of Hans Zimmer’s score."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
DUMB MONEY - Will Bates
 
"Gillespie also slyly uses a lot of energetic hip-hop and rock needledrops to reinforce the anti-establishment themes, while Will Bates’ synth-heavy score accentuates the techy vibe with a bit of a heist undertone throughout. And all the props for the sheer cheek of using Cardi B’s 'WAP' as a first needledrop to both establish the excess of hedge fund manager Gabe Plotkin’s (Seth Rogen) obnoxious wealth, and forever connect that song with the protagonist’s social media handle, Roaring Kitty. No notes."
 
Tara Bennett, Paste Magazine 
 
"Gillespie’s direction can’t help but remind of Adam McKay’s approach to the stock market in 'The Big Short,' mixed with little touches of 'The Social Network' (the first time we see Keith sit down at his YouTube setup in his basement, it reminds of Mark Zuckerberg getting in the zone, right down to Will Bates’ thematically similar score), but it’s the fragmentation of this story into different perspectives that makes it stand out. The way Blum and Angelo evenly distribute the narrative makes it so 'Dumb Money' feels more about the community than the individual, as the hyenas attempt to take out the lions. Especially as the stock starts to soar and money starts to become ridiculously high for the people who need it, 'Dumb Money' shows how such a remarkable occurrence would be life-changing, whereas, for the higher-ups, it’s an inconvenience that will eventually be righted."
 
Ross Bonaime, Collider

"It isn’t inherently a problem that 'Dumb Money' goes for a more dramatic tone than its title and subject matter imply. But the film never manages to capture the thrills and commentary of its big inspiration, David Fincher’s 'The Social Network,' even while borrowing that film’s aesthetic and the tone of its score."
 
Rafael Motamayor, Polygon 

FAIR PLAY - Brian McOmber
 
"But 'Fair Play' goes nowhere surprising with that premise, which is why, after the ecstatic opening, a feeling of dreariness cut with anxiety descends. Or is it anxiety cut with dreariness? The sound design, emphasizing the ceaseless hum of city living -- the elevated train, a vacuum cleaner, another 4:30am wake-up alarm -- coupled with Brian McOmber’s scratchy-insides score, puts the film’s resting heart rate at around two-beats-shy-of-a-panic-attack. It’s an ugly place to be stuck for two hours: a credible depiction of human nature at its worst, sure, but not an especially illuminating one. Still, there’s nerviness here, and undeniable skill. I’d like to see what Domont does next."
 
Kimberley Jones, The Austin Chronicle

"But the writer-director’s control is undeniable, making sharp use of a score by Brian McOmber to modulate the tone, with its juddering strings and needling synths at times like a ticking clock."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
A MAN OF INTEGRITY - Peyman Yazdanian
 
"Lest you think this is all a bit much for one family to endure, Rasoulof’s storytelling acumen is firmly in the realm of propulsive, detail-driven ethical thriller built on its character’s actions, rather than mere punching-bag melodrama. And it goes somewhere, most importantly, with its ideas, leaving you after its final, devastating image with something to think about instead of simply abandoned with your rage or pity. Rasoulof is aided, too, by Ashkan Ashkani’s no-frills cinematography, an abiding grayness that seems to infect interiors as well as exteriors (even, by increments, the thermal cave that is Reza’s refuge) in addition to Peyman Yazdanian’s judiciously used, sparse score."
 
Robert Abele, The Wrap 

"The quiet tech work takes a back seat to the drama. Ashkan Ashkani’s unemphatic cinematography focuses on the natural world around the gritty farm, the rough country roads and the plain facades of public buildings, along with a few special locations like the magical cave where Reza goes to find peace. Stand-out visuals include a raucous bird attack on the pond and a blaze, but both are brief interludes in the larger drama. Peyman Yazdanian’s well-heeled score also sticks to the background."
 
Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
 
THE MYSTERY OF MARILYN MONROE: THE UNHEARD TAPES - Anne Nikitin

"That wouldn’t be such a problem if 'The Unheard Tapes' weren’t just as single-mindedly salacious as its title implies; if it made a genuine effort to ask why Monroe’s legacy has proven so irresistible, rather than simply exploiting the fact that it continues to be. But the groan-worthy opening shots of Summers poring over his old files under a swell of overly suspenseful music -- as if that were something the author would ever feel compelled to do without the cameras around -- anticipate the kind of flimsy and superficial true-crime exposé that’s made straight-to-streaming documentaries seem like such unserious business."
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 
 
"What saves the doc to some extent is the wealth of fabulous archival material, expertly assembled by editor Gregor Lyon and accompanied by Anne Nikitin’s melancholy score. And of course, there’s Monroe herself, whose magical allure and haunting loneliness transcend even this ham-handed treatment."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 

SAW X - Charlie Clouser

"All the 'Saw' signatures are there: a surprisingly tricky timeline, the open-ended narrative, the accelerated judder shots, tortures that put the American Guinea Pig films to shame, a ghastly color palette, and Charlie Clouser's deliciously atonal score. After the gimmicky 'Saw 3D: The Final Chapter,' the clunky semi-reboot of 'Jigsaw,' and the misguided 'Spiral: From the Book of Saw,' 'Saw X' feels like a welcome return to form."
 
Richard Whittaker, The Austin Chronicle 
 
"'That was a long one,' he tells the technician. (Boo-hoo.) Unfortunately, Kramer’s case is terminal. And as he smirks through the bromides of his support group and gets his last will and testament in order, you can almost believe -- barring one eyeball-sucking dream sequence -- that Bell has stumbled into a different franchise altogether. (Call it 'Sob.') This somber cello-scored intro becomes a passage, then an entire first act, and it’s impossible not to smile at how veteran 'Saw' editor-turned-director Kevin Greutert commits to the long game. As it happens, Kramer hears about an experimental treatment: a cocktail-surgery combo unapproved by the FDA. Though weak, he flies to a secret clinic in Mexico City, where a saintly team of doctors and helpers eases him back toward hope."
 
Joshua Rothkopf, Los Angeles Times
 
SICK OF MYSELF - Turns
 
"Her gimmick is nuts, and in his three-card-monte-style editing, Borgli plays with our and Signe’s belief in the effectiveness of it, too, faking us out with twists revealed to be either dreams or nightmares. (The score, too, credited to Turns, humorously toggles between sentimental and Bernard Herrmann-esque as if trying to keep up with her mindset.)"
 
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

Excuse me, but Michael Caine never appeared in The Rock.

Excuse me, but Michael Caine never appeared in The Rock.

Would've made a neat movie, though.

Yep, loads of bloody doors to blow off.

I don't recall seeing Michael Caine in The Rock?

AAARGH! Sean Connery and Michael Caine have pretty much always been my favorite movie stars, so I guess I just needed to keep teaming them up.

Will fix.

Michael Caine actually played Nicolas Cage's father in The Weather Man, with Nicolas Hoult as the grandson, which I guess means Britishness skips a generation.
