DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

ATLAS - Andrew Lockington
 
"Then you have the confounding sentiments that AI, in any shape or form, is beneficial to humanity. Though we shouldn’t expect what’s essentially 'content' for couch-surfers to deliver heady, philosophically pointed arguments about the relationship between people and AI, it’s a shame that Atlas and Smith don’t get into sharper discussions about the issue, considering it’s the one thing blocking the protagonist from transforming into her more enlightened self. It’s baffling how the filmmakers betray humans: Not only do they anthropomorphize a machine by assigning it a quick wit and emotional soul (one Andrew Lockington’s swelling score insists it has), they also inadvertently cast it as the sacrificial hero, continually putting it in harm’s way at the behest of the heroine’s quest."
 
Courtney Howard, The Onion AV Club 
 
DOG GONE - Emily Bear
 
"The screenplay by Nick Santora skillfully smooths out the story, with strong control of tone by director Stephen Herek, a fine score by Emily Bear, and cinematographer Michael Martinez making the best possible use of the beautiful Georgia landscape that stands in for a Virginia setting."
 
Neil Minow, RogerEbert.com 
 
"This exhaustively sanitized, overly saccharine take on the hero’s journey is certainly nothing new, but it remains rather uninteresting. With a family both wealthy enough to support a multi-week hiatus from work to look for their dog, and white enough that everyone and their mothers apparently want to help them out, the Marshalls run into little to no obstacles over the duration of their quest. If this doesn’t sound unimaginative enough, 'Dog Gone''s Disney score and inspirational Hallmark-card script might as well guarantee that Gonker is going to get back to his old antics in no time at all."
 
Aurora Amidon, Paste Magazine 
 
IF - Michael Giacchino
 
"In the end, the fun of the premise and the emotional crux of the story never intertwine. That disconnect cheapens the earnestness of the film’s construction, making even Janusz Kaminski and Michael Giacchino’s wonderful work feel like cheap smash grabs for the heartstrings. Krasinski’s material isn’t cynical in the slightest but seems unable or unwilling to settle on what exactly it wants to say until the pre-credits sequence: a montage of ancillary characters from the film meeting their imaginary friends again as adults that is so simple and moving, it makes the bewildered nature of the rest of the film feel even more unfortunate in retrospect."
 
Justin Clark, Slant Magazine
 
"John Krasinski’s 'IF' (it’s an acronym for 'Imaginary Friend') is a strange movie. It’s tonally discombobulated and nowhere near as enchanting as Michael Giacchino’s score seems to think it is. It’s distractingly derivative of the Cartoon Network series 'Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends' and J.A. Bayona’s 'A Monster Calls' and the 90s favorite 'Drop Dead Fred,' but originality isn’t nearly as important as effective storytelling. And 'IF' has neither."
 
William Bibbiani, The Wrap
 
"'IF' begins by showing us a mostly silent recording of a happy family who is eventually forced to reckon with cancer. Much like 'Up' (especially considering this film has a whimsical yet devastating score by Michael Giacchino), we learn everything we need to know about this family via these old video clips. Still, some of the best moments in 'IF' come from embracing that mixture of joy among the sorrow, which is particularly the case in the truly beautiful moments this film captures in the third act. Once this world is established and we know these characters, 'IF' becomes truly powerful in trying to get these IFs reunited with their former owners. These aren’t grand gestures that the film is trying to capture, instead, showing the small support that we all need. The way Krasinski films these scenes, along with two-time Oscar-winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski and Giacchino’s sweeping score, he’s able to capture the beauty in the simple joys of life, and the small moments that can make all the difference. Even just being told that things are going to be okay can make a massive impact, and it’s wonderful that Krasinski can capture that in the film’s third act."
 
Ross Bonaime, Collider
 
"Any child over 5 will predict the Keyser Söze twist in Bea and Cal’s relationship. But this is a film that spells out its intentions for an audience still learning its ABCs, a film where Michael Giacchino’s misty violins never stop insisting how to feel, where Krasinski’s goofy dad literally wears a heart on his chest."
 
Amy Nicholson, The New York Times
 
"That’s too bad, because 'IF' does have a classical look and feel to its visuals, an old-school and big-hearted quality sorely missed in cinema aimed at younger viewers these days. Everything from the magical lens of frequent Steven Spielberg DP Janusz Kaminski to Jess Gonchor’s opulent production design and Michael Giacchino’s disarmingly melancholic score beg for a film with as much writerly finesse to rise to the occasion. If only."
 
Tomris Laffly, Variety
 
"There’s also real cinematic craftsmanship on display in every aspect, from Janusz Kaminski’s elegant cinematography that gives the proceedings a warm, burnished glow to Michael Giacchino’s elegiac score that accentuates the story’s sadder elements without becoming too treacly. The performances are impeccable, with young Fleming anchoring the proceedings with real emotional depth and Reynolds displaying his trademark comedic chops without overdoing it."
 
Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter 

KIDNAPPED: THE ABDUCTION OF EDGARDO MONTARA - Fabio Massimo Capogrosso
 
"All this material is presented by Bellocchio and his co-screenwriter Susanna Nicchiarelli (a director herself) not as a cooly observed case study in which bare facts are laid out, but something more in the spirit of a grand, tragic opera, or an epic movie melodrama from an earlier time that that would’ve been shot either in burnished black-and-white or feverish Technicolor, depending on the decade. Francesco Di Giacomo’s cinematography seems to have been modeled on Old Masters like Rembrandt. There's a hint of Gordon Willis’ work in the 'Godfather' trilogy in the way that single-source lighting falls on clothing and faces. Fabio Massimo Capogrosso’s busy, booming orchestral score helps unify a script that might have otherwise seemed too terse or schematic. It regularly reminds you of which side the movie is on (the 'kidnapping, bullying and oppression are bad' side) even when 'Kidnapped' is investing its most disturbing characters with complexity -- and reminding you that just because the main players have been reduced to just a wee bit more than their plot functions in the interests of efficiency (the running time is two hours and change) doesn’t mean they aren’t full human beings."
 
Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com 

"Throughout his life, Edgardo remained faithful to the church. In the film, one gets the sense that the director, in not wanting to rob the adult Edgardo (Leonardo Maltese) of his agency, even if it was woefully compromised, resorts to a horror-inflected score and overdramatic scenes of parental anguish to make clear the devastating consequences of a child separated from his family. The heightened drama seems hardly necessary."
 
Lisa Kennedy, The New York Times 
 
"Despite the cool, screeching, horror-like score and some memorable moments, Kidnapped plays more like a heavy sigh than an absorbing adaptation of history. Its tense, shadowed cinematography has moments, but ultimately feels incomplete, not fully considered. Landscape shots of Rome and surrounding areas at night, of which there are many, are kitschy and unpalatably colored -- like darker Thomas Kinkades, images that belong in a children’s fantasy book or a Disney princess live-action remake."
 
Luke Hicks, The Film Stage 

"The fact Eduardo died in 1940, just a year after Bellocchio was born is a reminder that this iteration of the Catholic Church was not that long ago. And while the filmmaker has a better grasp on conveying well-staged melodrama than many of his contemporaries half his age (Fabio Massimo Capogrosso’s score and Francesco Di Giacomo‘s cinematography assist), the heart of the story somehow still gets lost. Even a final scene that should capture the tragedy of this tale falls surprisingly flat. And that is likely because the narrative’s focus simply veers too far away from Eduardo’s life."
 
Gregory Ellwood, The Playlist 
 
"Suffering from a slightly leaden script (co-written by Bellocchio and 'Nico 1988' director Susanna Nicchiarelli), and strangely ignoring all but the most cursory sense of outside political context during this extraordinarily turbulent time, 'Kidnapped' makes the strongest impression in pure craft terms -- the soundtrack, featuring several well-selected classical pieces alongside Fabio Massimo Capogrosso’s score, is especially impeccable. There’s an almost fetishistic attention to small details, such as the little fondue pot of bubbling, blood-red wax that Felletti uses to seal his dire declarations, or the rustling opulence of Sergio Ballo and Daria Calvelli’s superb period-accurate costuming. Whether evoking the candlelit interiors of the Mortara home or the street locations of 1800s Bologna, or using Italy’s grand estates to double for the Vatican (the famous Room of the World Map in the Villa Farnese is a particularly evocative avatar for the Pope’s office), DP Francesco Di Giacomo’s painterly camerawork ensures that the film has a visual richness that it never quite achieves thematically."
 
Jessica Kiang, Variety 

"Filled with the director’s typical operatic flourishes -- cameras floating down corridors or over balconies as characters race toward disaster, emotional crescendos set to a racing score by Fabio Massimo Capogrosso -- it can also be a rather stuffy affair, with lots of dramatic speeches and religious symbolism that runs the gamut from satirical to heavy-handed. What seems to fascinate Bellocchio most about the story is not really the characters, who come across as stereotypes whether they’re Jews or Catholics, but what it says about an epoch when the highly reactionary Pope Pius IX began to lose power in the face of the newly founded Kingdom of Italy."
 
Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
THE LAST STOP IN YUMA COUNTY - Matthew Compton
 
"Energized by a Matthew Compton score of simmering ominousness, 'The Last Stop in Yuma County' builds to its finale with the same precision that typifies its every move. Rather than getting cute or losing his nerve, Galluppi embraces his chosen genre’s bleak heart right to the bitter end, staging his concluding face-off amidst the vast plains, where the sand whips through the air, the blue sky looms large overhead, and escape is a fleeting fantasy. A fitting companion piece to everything from Robert Siodmak’s 1946 'The Killers' to James Foley’s 1990 'After Dark, My Sweet,' it’s a faithful bit of noir nastiness that -- like Charlotte’s rhubarb pie -- is to die for."
 
Nick Schager, The Daily Beast 

The first-time writer-director, Francis Galluppi (the name sounds European but he’s from Los Angeles), establishes his chops in the unblinking opening shot, which lasts for close to two minutes. As a thrumming, dread-soaked neo-’50s score plays, we see an image as carefully framed as an Edward Hopper painting. It’s a dusty highway, with a motel to the left (but the sign, cut off by a wall, just says “TEL”), and there are buzzing flies and a hint of a cloud passing overhead.
 
Owen Gleiberman, Variety 

RETROGRADE - H. Scott Salinas
 
"The scenes at Kabul Airport made the front pages of newspapers around the world. The footage in the documentary is terrifying and heart-rending. H. Scott Salinas' score is mournful, elegiac, and -- it goes without saying --tremendously sad. When paired up with the faces of women, men, and children, where nerves and despair are almost on the surface of the skin, the full weight of the catastrophe unfolding is felt."
 
Sheila O'Malley, RogerEbert.com

"In one of his more impressive gets, Heineman makes his way into a Taliban leadership meeting during which spooky music murmurs in the background as a firebrand riles up the crowd. As he rhapsodizes about the brutal aggressions of the power-hungry West, one might start to think the guy’s onto something, until he pins all the unrest on the machinations of those nefarious Jews. Nonetheless, the scene illustrates a crucial core of contradiction in the tangled web of motivations that fueled the past twenty years of disaster, a complicated grey area in which the opposite of the wrong thing isn’t necessarily right. Heineman’s thesis that because leaving has gone so poorly, staying would’ve necessarily been better is incorrect at best, and disingenuous at worst. He wants to think structurally, aware that America can and does flatten other nations beneath our clumsy footfalls. He just can’t -- or won’t -- see the whole structure out of apparent fear that it’ll be too unflattering for all involved, including him, the army’s useful launderer of their image-sanitizing talking points."
 
Charles Bramesco, The Playlist

THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE CHILDREN - The Gifted
 
"Much like her directorial debut, 'Body at Brighton Rock,' Roxanne Benjamin’s sophomore feature feels like a throwback to an era when horror movies were more fun. While it’s set in the present day and is certainly not a nostalgia picture, it features plenty of stylistic elements that could have made it the highest-grossing horror flick of 1986. A synth-heavy score that sounds like it’s ripped straight from a John Carpenter movie. A title card written in That Stephen King Book Cover Font. And an unabashed willingness to have zany fun without slipping into the dreaded 'self-awareness' that plagues so many scary movies these days. While it’s a premise we’ve seen many times before, 'There’s Something Wrong with the Children' punches above its weight by doing all the little things right. T.J. Cimfel and David White’s script is built like a Swiss watch, setting up countless twists without ever wasting a line. They wisely never tell us what this magical cliff in the woods actually does, allowing the mysterious plot device to take on 'Pulp Fiction' briefcase status in our imaginations. On the infrequent occasions when the plot hits a lull, it’s immediately bailed out by a badass music cue from The Gifted’s stellar score. And the colorist really deserves a raise because the climax unfolds in a series of sunset hues that turns the adventures of these creepy kids into genuinely gripping cinema."
 
Christian Zilko, IndieWire 

"This dynamic works in 'There’s Something Wrong with the Children''s favor. The only element that brings the movie down is The Gifted’s score, which too often threatens to overwhelm what’s happening on screen, instead of enhancing it. But Benjamin keeps the audience’s focus where it belongs: on Ben; on those rascally, infested children; on the existential panic of parenthood; and especially on the woods from which, in Benjamin’s vision, nothing good emerges."
 
Andy Crump, Paste Magazine 

"Every time the camera focus on one of the kids’ malicious look, it remains static for a second too long, spoiling any doubt one could have about the nature of the tiny monsters. The camera also pans and tilts in unusual ways to underline the creepiness of the setting. Unfortunately, that also happens in dramatic scenes that lose their emotional impact. Then there’s the matter of sound editing. While the original songs by The Gifted are great on their own, when every moment of silence needs to be filled with an eerie soundtrack, there’s no breathing moment to just connect with the characters."
