La-La Land has announced two new releases for the week of September 14 - an expanded, two-disc edition of one of James Horner's finest scores, for director Edward Zwick's 1989 Civil War epic GLORY, starring Matthew Broderick, Morgan Freeman, Cary Elwes, Andre Braugher, and an Oscar-winning Denzel Washington; and an expanded and remastered version of one of Elmer Bernstein's great comedy scores, for the Bill Murray vehicle STRIPES.


Varese Sarabande has announced two new Deluxe Edition score releases from their CD Club: Jerry Goldsmith's score for the 1992 period drama LOVE FIELD, which earned Michelle Pfeiffer a Best Actress nomination, featuring an expanded version of Goldsmith's score (previously released on CD by Varese) as well as the additional music by Bill Payne that replaced several of Goldsmith's cues in the final film; and a two-disc edition of the soundtrack for DANTE'S PEAK, the 1997 volcano thriller (not to be confused with the competing Volcano), featuring the score by John Frizzell which includes two themes composed for the film by James Newton Howard (who had originally signed on as the film's composer until a scheduling conflict intervened) as well as cues co-written with Jeff Atmajian, Brad Dechter, Steve Porcaro and John Van Tongeren. 


The latest release from Caldera features Zbigniew Preisner's score for the brand-new religious biopic MAN OF GOD (definitely not to be confused with the just-released Ted Bundy movie No Man of God).


Dragon's Domain has announced their latest batch of new releases - WEBS AND OTHER WONDERS, a collection of music for nature documentaries composed by John Scott; THE DAVID SPEAR COLLECTION VOL. 2, featuring two scores composed by the veteran composer-orchstrator, Mortuary Academy (1988) and Kiss Daddy Goodbye (1981); and a re-release of the score for MEETINGS WITH REMARKABLE MEN, with Laurence Rosenthal adapting the music of Thomas De Hartmann.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

CRYPTOZOO - John Carroll Kirby

"Dialing back the ironic tone that gave 'My Entire High School' its charm, 'Cryptozoo' traffics in blunter dialogue and a few too many screenplay contrivances, especially once it arrives at a violent finale when everything falls apart. But the shimmering colors and shifting lines elevate every scene, often creating the sense of a storybook in motion. When the cryptozoo becomes a battlefield, as giant snakes and floating South American orbs wreak havoc while a reptilian humanoid attempts to save his doomed lover, Shaw stuffs so many visual conceits into each moment, it’s almost too much for one mind to process. Yet with an awe-inspiring score by John Carrol Kirby pushing the drama forward, the movie zips along with such confident energy that it’s impossible not to settle into the sheer ingenuity of it all."
 
Eric Kohn, IndieWire 
 
"And so much of 'Cryptozoo' consists of a ploddingly paced cross-country baku-hunt, culminating in a long sequence where the humans try to survive on an island overrun by uncaged cryptids. Like 'My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea,' the movie mostly features deadpan, almost monotone voice performances, presumably meant to heighten the surreality by serving as a contrast to the bizarre images. But while that approach worked reasonably well in an absurdist high school action-comedy, it deadens the tone in this much more earnest and spectacle-driven project. (It doesn’t help either that Shaw and composer John Carroll Kirby have opted for a soundtrack that sounds softly, lullingly 'exotic,' like something better-suited to a yoga class.)"
 
Noel Murray, The Onion AV Club 
 
"Lauren’s search, on which she’s joined by gorgon sidekick Phoebe (Angeliki Papoulia), takes her to strip clubs and tarot readers, to forlorn shacks in foreign countries and dusky towns in Kentucky. Often we zip from one to another along a cartoon-strip-style split-screen, or on a clever, cinematic match-cut. She’s helped and hindered by an untrustworthy, debaucherous faun called Gustav unmistakably voiced by Peter Stormare and given his own pan-pipes-and-maracas theme amid John Carroll Kirby’s pleasantly eclectic score. And before the adventure ends, she will ride both in a military helicopter and on the back of a golden-winged Pegasus. All along, she and Phoebe have ideological discussions, especially about the zoo. Is it a haven or a prison, and will the proposed tourists look on its occupants with awe and respect, or as circus freaks."
 
Jessica Kiang, Variety 

"One of many lovely screen wipes and a dreamy cue in John Carroll Kirby’s shape-shifting electronic score segue to main title graphics that establish the film’s suspension between ancient mythology and spacey acid trip. The protagonist, Lauren (Lake Bell), recalls her childhood as a military brat in Okinawa, where her nightmares were soothed by a baku, a Japanese supernatural being that sucks up dreams, allowing her to sleep. Drawn like a strong-jawed Pre-Raphaelite Lara Croft, the adult Lauren now dedicates her life to rescuing these cryptids from black-market traders...The resulting violent conflict, during which the blood-soaked, still-naked Amber also resurfaces, to some degree counters its shortage of storytelling discipline with the giddy spectacle of its magical menagerie in action, swept along by percussive bursts of excitement in Kirby’s score."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 

THE DJINN - Matthew James

"But for the most part, 'The Djinn' is effectively taut and tense, helped along by a spooky, synth-heavy score, some nifty special effects and a genuinely disturbing twist ending."
 
Noel Murray, The Onion AV Club 

"Set in 1989 for no obvious reason beyond justifying the generic retro dreariness of the interior setting (or perhaps the vintage-synth aspects of Matthew James’ score), the movie opens with our first among many successively revealing glimpses of the same scene: 12-year-old Dylan (Ezra Dewey) waking in the middle of the night to find his mother (Tevy Poe) sobbing in the kitchen."
 
Dennis Harvey, Variety 
 
"And it wouldn’t be a truly effective ’80s throwback movie without a throwback score and soundtrack – this time provided by Matthew James, most well known for his work in 'Black Lightning,' 'Useless Humans,' and 'Arkansas.' While some of the synths sound a bit too modern for the time period, James cobbles together an overall sound that evokes the era of cheap synth-laden soundtracks that try to recreate the John Carpenter lo-fi glory. Again, it’s a bit cheap and imperfect, but so are the films that 'The Djinn' is largely paying homage to."
 
Mike DeAngelo, The Playlist 

MA BELLE, MY BEAUTY - Mahmoud Chouki
 
"'Ma Belle, My Beauty' is lovely, not least because it was filmed in and around the book-me-a-flight village of Anduze near the Cévennes mountains. Hill and cinematographer Lauren Guiteras seize the light in ways that suggest the unfolding dramas -- while ouchy -- are part and parcel of a life worth grabbing hold of. With its sun-dappled days, attractive farmhouse, fetching characters and at-the-ready bottles of red wine, the movie hints at Luca Guadagnino’s vexed idylls. Composer Mahmoud Chouki’s score -- North African notes with shades of New Orleans jazz -- buoys the overall mood without discounting the emotional stakes."
 
Lisa Kennedy, Variety 

"Lauren Guiteras’ sun-dappled cinematography has a jazzy ease that compliments the film’s overall laid-back vibe. And composer Mahmoud Chouki shows great versatility, blending French, Latin, New Orleans and North African rhythms into a musical melting pot that reflects how all these different characters are trying to come together in harmony."
 
Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter 

THE MAN IN THE HAT - Stephen Warbeck
 
"Is it about death? Loss? Life? To debate it would be if not unfair, impolite to this gentle story. Much better to just go along for the ride and relish the lush French countryside, the luscious food, the lovely music, and to think of 'The Man in the Hat' as in the title of the Baudelaire poem quoted in the film, an 'Invitation to Travel.'"
 
Neil Minow, RogerEbert.com 

THE NIGHT HOUSE - Ben Lovett
 
"The 'was it real or was it all a dream' chestnut has been roasted quite a few times before in this genre. But Bruckner’s approach is subtler and more disquieting -- the momentary relief we may feel when Beth wakes up in the cold light of day after some cavalcade of night terrors has less sustain than the lingering mood of the terrors themselves. And on a more granular level, Bruckner never cheats us with cheap 'it was only the cat'-style fake-outs. Aided by David Marks’ exceptional, knife-edge editing -- and sound design that deploys effects, soundtrack cuts, and Ben Lovett‘s score with all the soothing restfulness of a Guantanamo torture program -- Bruckner has the filmmaking confidence to follow through on his scary build-ups with often unfeasibly frightening reveals. (There were a lot of hands over faces at the film’s midnight premiere, though I’m proud to say I resisted the urge to cover my eyes, and instead just squinted them near-shut which made everything blurry and probably more terrifying as a result)."
 
Jessica Kiang, The Playlist 

"Here, he provides a certain elegance but also shadowy menace to a story much dependent on the picture windows and other reflective surfaces of Beth’s home, whose openness ought to comfort yet instead offers the threat of parallel worlds. DP Elisha Christian’s widescreen images, Kathrin Eder’s sharp production design and David Marks’ canny editing are major contributors to the discomfiting atmosphere, as is Ben Lovett’s effective score. 'The Night House' is ultimately somewhat muddled and unmemorable as storytelling, but it pulls off what’s arguably the most crucial matter of simply being pretty chilling."
 
Dennis Harvey, Variety 

"There’s also much to admire in the cinematography of Elisha Christian, who revealed his grasp of the expressive power of architecture in Kogonada’s 'Columbus.' The conjuring of spectral presences out of structural beams and negative space -- which may or may not be products of Beth’s feverish imagination -- is especially effective. Likewise Ben Lovett’s obsessively churning score. Bruckner, who directed Netflix’s 'The Ritual' and segments of the anthology films 'V/H/S' and 'Southbound' -- he’s now in production on a reboot of Clive Barker’s 'Hellraiser' for Hulu, also with writers Collins and Piotrowski -- deftly sustains tension and mood. It’s just a shame this absorbing chiller, which unfolds primarily in the thick of night, doesn’t stand up to close scrutiny in the daylight."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 

NO MAN OF GOD - Clarice Jensen
 
"'No Man of God' is impeccably and carefully directed by Sealey, and the craft on display is remarkable. Karina Silva’s precisely off-kilter cinematography animates the claustrophobic room where Hagmaier and Bundy hold their conversations. Clarice Jensen’s unsettling electronic score commingles with the camera work to build a sense of achingly slow-burn tension. Abstract interstitial montages let off a bit of steam with a propulsive electro soundtrack, marking the passing of time with images of the menacing and the mundane. The film is beautifully acted by Wood and Kirby; Kirby is especially compelling in such a challenging role, equal parts cajoling, grandiose and terrifying. His Bundy is mystifying yet always humane."
 
Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times

"With sinuous edits incorporating some lovely dissolves, slow tracking shots gliding down the prison corridors and excellent use of a disquieting string and electronic score by Clarice Jensen, director Sealey confidently sets the wheels in motion for a psychological thriller in which the wily Bundy will cause Hagmaier to question the nature of man and what separates him from the unrepentant killer, rapist and necrophiliac sitting across from him."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
SWEET GIRL - Steven Price
 
"Even more ridiculous than Ray going full-on homicidal, and a pharmaceutical company sending scores of hitmen after him, is the story’s late twist, which asks viewers to accept that what they’ve just watched was actually less crazy than the truth. Aided by Steven Price’s enthusiastic score, Mendoza’s vigorous direction keeps things speeding along, and Momoa is such a charismatic presence -- whether sensitively interacting with Rachel (skillfully embodied by Merced) or inventively snapping an adversary’s neck -- that the proceedings’ lack of realism works to its advantage. Casting its brutal action and anguished family drama in amusingly over-the-top terms, the film confirms that, though Hollywood may not make brawny B-movies like they used to, perhaps they should."
 
Nick Schager, Variety 
 
WHITE AS SNOW - Bruno Coulais
 
"Early on, Fontaine deploys an enchanting fairytale score from Bruno Coulais ('Wolfwalkers') to ease us into the slightly heightened tone of the piece. In keeping with nearly all the unmistakable plot elements of the original fable, a jilted Maud hires an assassin to dispose of the fair-skinned damsel, in this case not a hunter but a huntress. While out for a run, Claire is kidnapped, but as we know, she survives. An isolated mountain town and its dwellers nurture Claire into a new life away from the rigor of the city."
 
Carlos Aguilar, The Wrap
