The latest releases from Music Box are a CD featuring music from three films scored by Philippe Sarde and directed by Pierre Granier-Deferre -- ADIEU POULET (The French Detective), L'AMI DE VINCENT and L'ETOILE DU NORD; Philippe Rombi's score for the new thriller BOITE NOIRE; and a remastered reissue of the score for the 1982 comedy DEUX HEURES MOINS LE QUART AVANT JESUS CHRIST, composed by Jean Yanne and Raymond Allesandrini


The latest soundtrack release from Quartet is a re-release of their two-disc edition of Jerry Goldsmith's Oscar-nominated score for BASIC INSTINCT


I think the best thing about this week in movie music is that though I'd never heard of composer Jongnic Bontemps until now, he has two movies opening in Los Angeles theaters this week, Last Night in Rozzie and My Name Is Pauli Murray.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

THE BOY BEHIND THE DOOR - Anton Sanko
 
"The child actors are very good, the pacing adept, Anton Sanko’s score judicious. The overall effect is a rock-solid if not quite imaginatively memorable exercise in entrapment peril à la 'Don’t Breathe' or Shudder’s own recent add 'Caveat.' No matter what Charbonier and Powell do next, you can bet it’s going to have more than a handful of characters or settings -- and that they will be able to handle the increased scale just fine."
 
Dennis Harvey, Variety 
 
BROKEN DIAMONDS - Keegan DeWitt, Dabney Morris
 
"Absentee parents, wacko siblings, dreams of escape, crazy high jinks, suicide attempts, snarky humor, repeated flashbacks to fragmented (and uniformly silent) childhood memories and climactic healing and reconciliation are all part of 'Broken Diamonds'' hackneyed stew, which director Sattler sets to a stream of plaintive singer-songwriter ballads and portentous orchestral arrangements. Not once does the film deviate from its stock narrative and formal template, thereby rendering everything twee, strained and unbelievable. Moreover, rather than taking Cindy’s mental health issues seriously, Waverly’s script conceives of her as simply a catalyst for comedic and/or sad chaos, as well as a device designed to facilitate Scott’s transformation."
 
Nick Schager, Variety 

THE EAST - Gino Taihuttu
 
"Cinematographer Lennart Verstegen captures the equatorial green hell of Indonesia’s tropical rain forests – from which Sukarno’s ghostlike partisans mount their attacks on the Dutch troops -- with a stifling palette of verdant chaos, while the director’s brother Gino Taihuttu layers on a suitably arresting score full of discordant electronic themes that serve to unnerve and succeed all too well. 'The East' is an unrelenting condemnation of the Netherlands’ misguided attempt to return its colonial outreach to a time long gone while hitting most (if not all) of the 'doomed war' niche genre movie tropes without ever actually teetering into cliche. That’s an ever-tricky move that Taihuttu aces."
 
Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle 
 
MATERNA - Andrew Orkin
 
"'Materna' wisely doesn’t try to neatly resolve its multifaceted tensions, and Sheil, Abdullina, Burdge and especially Eshete’s performances are attuned to the material’s fundamental air of incompleteness and instability. Yet despite a diverse Andrew Orkin score, the forlorn and minimalist tone struck throughout proves too uniform, thanks in part to cinematography that -- in each segment -- segues similarly between intense close-ups and remote compositions in which figures are spied in dark, empty spaces or constricting doorways. The film is formally beautiful almost to a fault, giving it a schematic quality that’s at odds with its roiling emotions."
 
Nick Schager, Variety 
 
MIDNIGHT IN THE SWITCHGRASS - Liam Westbrook, Robin Stout

"In his directorial debut, Emmett is seemingly looking to replicate an ersatz 'True Detective,' complete with grungy color palette, somber string music, and hokey narration. But without any sort of genuine introspection into what makes cops or killers tick, 'Midnight in the Switchgrass' is ultimately indistinguishable from any of the scores of cheap VOD action thrillers that Emmett is notoriously known for producing (many of which feature Willis)."
 
Mark Hanson, Slant Magazine 
 
"Women disappear nearly every day in this small western Florida city. The victims fit similar profiles: young, white and usually sex workers. Early in the film, a man comes across a lifeless, haphazardly discarded body in a random field. The police show up and discover that it’s one of the women who recently went missing. In the following scene, the killer’s next target, Tracey Lee (Caitlin Carmichael), stumbles out of a motel room and walks through a gas station, where a trucker tries to accost her. She fights back before another trucker, Peter (Lukas Haas), saves her life. It’s clear from the dramatic music, his shifty eyes and the slow, menacing motion of the camera that Peter can’t be trusted either."
 
Loviya Gyarkye, The Hollywood Reporter 

MISHA AND THE WOLVES - Nick Foster
 
"Jane Daniel, the publisher who got the whole ball rolling, shares her experience of encountering Misha's story, and, frankly, seeing dollar signs. Her publishing operation was tiny and Misha's wolf pack could put her over the edge. Daniel doesn't seem particularly reliable and Hobkinson makes big choices with ominous melodramatic music cues, and piercing closeups of Jane's eyes, casting her as a villain, or maybe a victim, you're not sure. Either way, these choices are in service of misdirection. Later in the film, there are multiple scenes of an elderly Belgian genealogist (and Holocaust survivor herself) poring through old telephone books and dusty records, searching for clues to Misha's real identity. It's painstaking work, and it may not be as interesting visually as those sentimental re-enactments, for example, but the detective work is where the story really takes off, as these individuals who care about truth fact-check the narrative. Catfishing the audience (essentially) is the least interesting approach for this material."
 
Sheila O'Malley, RogerEbert.com 
 
PRAY AWAY - Laura Karpman, Nora Kroll-Ronsenbaum
 
"Finding flaws in a film of such importance seems trite, but to infer that 'Pray Away' is perfect would be a lie. However, apart from a score that occasionally imposes an insincere emotional response, certain talking points from evangelical Christian leaders speaking on homosexuality being -- possibly -- taken out of context, and the inherent acknowledgment of manipulation and subjectivity that accompany every documentary, 'Pray Away' sets out to make an impact, and the film deserves all of the praise that will presumably -- deservedly -- come its way."
 
Jonathan Christian, The Playlist

"Stolakis jumps between the many life stories in this tragedy with little focus, and lets them matter-of-fact. 'Pray Away' is exactly the kind of documentary it appears to be from the beginning, and that's part of the disappointing problem, even if it makes clear the harrowing details within. Slathered with a score that makes the sadness of each passage unmistakable, 'Pray Away' narrows its purpose to be simply informative; it is too artistically flat to have the emotional peaks that would give its own otherwise vital message some dynamic, or make it more impactful beyond its very subject matter. The nuance mostly comes here from the empathy it asks of the audience to accept the former messengers, in part because the documentary is not going to challenge them beyond making them recall their pain."
 
Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com 

VIVO - Lin-Manuel Miranda, Alex Lacamoire
 
"The movie’s biggest selling point is Lin-Manuel Miranda, both as songwriter and as a vocal presence. But that creates a weird experience where Vivo raps about being hungry and scrappy on the streets, and it really just feels like an animated version of a 'Hamilton' outtake. While the music is gorgeous, and definitely one of the film’s highlights, hearing Miranda’s nasal voice come out of the adorable kinkajou is jarring. (It doesn’t help that Miranda has become a meme on TikTok, and for the very plugged-in, he’s been associated with a certain stigma since many of the memes make fun of him.)...Thankfully, by the time the film ends, the story shifts back to Marta and Andrés, and the final musical sequence is poignant. If more of the story focused on that romance and the power of music, Vivo would be a memorable experience, one similar to the emotional power of Pixar’s 'Coco,' which also focuses on music, long-lost lovers, and the next generation carrying on the torch. Even with gorgeous animated sequences and wonderful music, the film juggles too many shenanigans, detracting from the more powerful story at hand. Still, the ending harkens back to what made the movie shine in the first place, tying it all together in a beautifully bittersweet finale."
 
Petrana Radulovic, Polygon 

"There are touches of Miranda magic that set 'Vivo' apart from most animated musicals. It’s a pleasure to hear his hyper-dexterous verbosity in the opening number. While there’s nothing in the score to make fans forget 'Hamilton,' there are a few songs with the uplifting gusto the composer brought to, say, 'In the Heights': 'One of a Kind' and the spoonbill duet 'Love’s Gonna Pick You Up' come to mind. The standout song is probably 'My Own Drum,' Gabi’s girl-power declaration of independence, performed with brio by Simo. Ironically, though, the song the entire story builds up to, 'Inside Your Heart (Para Marta),' does not turn out to be the home run the movie needs in the bottom of the ninth. 'Vivo' takes off with a cute kinkajou, some good music and some interesting visuals, but ultimately doesn’t stick the landing."
 
Michael Ordona, Los Angeles Times

WHO YOU THINK I AM - Ibrahim Maalouf

"The splitting of the story into distinct accounts is a mere stylistic excuse for Laurens to take up much more atemporal questions than the contradictory 'shipwreck and lifeboat' nature of internet hook-ups, as Claire tells her therapist, Catherine (Nicole Garcia). In many ways, social media in the novel is Laurens’s forced attempt to seem current, but while her writing fortunately overshadows the flatness of Facebook as a narrative device, the film brings the flatness of instant-messaging screens to the fore and scores it all with insistent piano music."
 
Diego Semerene, Slant Magazine 
 
"The filmmaking adjusts accordingly, with jazz musician Ibrahim Maalouf’s hitherto spare, supple score steadily ramping things up to onze. But before that savory point of no return, 'Who You Think I Am' works in a lower key as a dry little comedy of manners, milking much mirth from generational conflict and changing codes of online etiquette. (Binoche’s expression of abject, panicked incomprehension when Alex asks for her 'insta' is a picture worth the price of admission alone.)"
 
Guy Lodge, Variety 
 
"Previously best known for 2008’s 'Mark of An Angel,' which also dealt with a middle-aged woman suffering from mental health issues, Nebbou handles proceedings with in a confident and slick manner. He deploys Ibrahim Maalouf’s score with restraint before amping it up in the delicious final seconds. It’s a satisfying denouement to what has in effect been a 'catfishing' narrative told from the catfish’s own POV. Claire only grasps the seriousness of her sustained deceptions when she hears of a tragic development around the hour mark (its shattering impact boosted by a rare, vertiginous directorial flourish). This casts a darker hue over all that follows, including an extended sequence in which Dr. Bormans reads the story Claire has written based on her own recent experiences and the tale-with-in-a-tale is depicted onscreen."
 
Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter

YAKUZA PRINCESS - Lucas Marcier, Fabiano Krieger

"Thanks to cinematographer Gustavo Hadba, 'Yakuza Princess' unfurls in a stylish neon-lit reality where each static frame is industriously designed to spy on the characters from behind windows and doors. The alluring effect of those elegant shots matches the intensity and brightness of the lights that coat the picture. But there’s only so much good will such a dazzling but overused aesthetic mandate can get you when the set pieces are sparse, the pumping of exposition relentless, and the music tritely mysterious."
 
Carlos Aguilar, IndieWire 
 
"Lucas Marcier and Fabiano Krieger’s eclectic score mixes deep, droning human voices with the piercing twang of the Japanese shamisen to outstanding effect in several sequences. For the record, Rhys Meyers’ character finally gets a name in the film’s final scene, which points clearly toward a sequel."
 
Richard Kuipers, Variety
