DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

THE ARMOR OF LIGHT - Paul Brill

"To that end, the movie also seems to shrink away whenever a scene becomes too confrontational. 'The Armor Of Light' doesn’t make its points while watching a situation unfold -- unlike another excellent recent documentary about an inconveniently Christian pastor, 'The Overnighters' -- but rather uses intense in-the-moment scenes as illustrations of what Schenck and McBath are going through, before retreating to calmer talking-head interviews and voice-over narration. That, coupled with the wall-to-wall music, makes 'The Armor Of Light' feel more conventional than it needs to be, and thus less illuminating. A person could watch just the first 20 minutes of the film and would know pretty much all there is to know about what’s in the rest."
 
Noel Murray, The Onion AV Club

"Disney follows Reverend Rob Schenck, an anti-abortion pastor in Washington, D.C. who becomes concerned that his pro-gun stance might be at odds with his pro-life beliefs. When Schenck first appears on screen, it's at an anti-abortion rally in Buffalo, New York, where he cradles an aborted fetus as he marches through the streets. But Disney, rather than calming the waters and approaching a conversation on less sensational terms, consistently uses manipulative music cues as a marker for emotional investment: When Schenck marches, he's backed by guitar strings reminiscent of the theme song from something like the History Channel's 'Pawn Stars.' As the documentary turns to gun violence, a soft piano track plays over the testimony of Lucy McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis, whose killing garnered national headlines once the assailant pleaded not guilty because of Stand Your Ground laws. Plopping McBath in front of a camera to capture her tears and choked speech as she recounts hearing about her son being murdered is exploitative enough; layering it with melancholic music is outright sadistic."
 
Clayton Dillard, Slant Magazine
 
"Even as it delves into some of the most painfully relevant issues of the fraught present moment, 'The Armor of Light' is notable for its general avoidance of overt conflict. Voices are occasionally raised as perspectives clash, but for the most part the film’s arguments seem to flow along on a single tide of shared consciousness. That smoothness is reflected in the filmmaking, as Schenck’s and McBath’s separate voiceovers play out over d.p. Jeff Hutchens’ attractive handheld coverage, and accompanied by Paul Brill’s sometimes overactive score."
 
Justin Chang, Variety

XENIA - Delaney Blue
 
"Filmmaker Panos H. Koutras is most interested in the twists and turns of the narrative and its various implausible events, too often accompanied by the kind of generic piano music that could flatten even the deepest images. Thankfully, he also leaves room for a few flights of fancy where the lack of verisimilitude feels less like screenplay filler and more like unabashed poetic license, uncommitted to plot."
 
Diego Semerene, Slant Magazine
