Intrada has announced three brand new CD releases -- the first-ever release of the original score tracks to Henry Mancini's classic BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, which won the composer Oscars for his score as well as for the original song "Moon River"; Bruce Broughton's score for the cult hit comedy thriller SO I MARRIED AN AX MURDERER, starring Mike Myers, Nancy Travis, Anthonly LaPaglia and Alan Arkin; and a CD pairing two TV scores by Craig Safan -- MISSION OF THE SHARK, which told the true story of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis, the tale made famous by Robert Shaw's monologue in Jaws, and the unsold pilot for the proposed TV series version of REMO WILLIAMS.

I am on vacation for much of the period surrounding Thanksgiving, so the latest news in film music will have to wait (and I won't get to the backlog of Did They Mention the Music? entries like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Thor: The Dark World and Philomena until much later in December.)

AFTERMATH - Jan Duszynski

"It’s mildly irksome that it takes a Yankee convert to finally unearth 'justice for all,' and Jan Duszynski’s emphatic score too often evokes slasher-movie melodrama. But with its slow-burn pacing and horrifying reveals, 'Aftermath' remains a deeply compelling puzzle."

R. Kurt Osenlund, Time Out New York

"'Aftermath' becomes a more conventional thriller (complete with a booming, overwrought score) as the brothers uncover more secrets."

Sam Weisberg, Village Voice

"Employing a jarringly intense score that’s too thriller-ish for such historical-inquiry material, writer-director Pasikowski stages his action as a whodunit in which Jozek and Franek snoop about and discover clues that suggest the area’s Jews were murdered by those closest to them, all while the duo is forced to confront mounting resistance -- and anti-Semitic slurs -- from citizens who would prefer their awful secrets to remain buried."

Nick Schager, The Dissolve

"Inspired by Jan Gross’ book 'Neighbors,' about the 1941 massacre of a Polish village’s Jewish population by their Catholic neighbors, Wladyslaw Pasikowski's 'Aftermath' retools the material into a fast-paced “backwater burg with a dark secret” quasi-horror film, complete with spooky lighting, ominous music, unexplained phenomena and hostile townfolk. Writer-director Pasikowski, co-scenarist of Andrej Wadja’s 'Katyn' and helmer of several successful thrillers, has a foot in both the arthouse and commercial camps. Pawel Edelman, lenser of Polanski’s 'The Pianist,' navigates the woodlands in atmospheric fashion; Jan Duszynski’s score cannily ratchets up the tension while Jaroslaw Kaminski’s kinetic cutting keeps action flowing briskly."

Ronnie Scheib, Variety
