The latest release from Intrada is a greatly expanded version of Bruce Broughton's score for director Randal Kleiser's 1992 sci-fi comedy sequel HONEY, I BLEW UP THE KID, which also features Broughton's score for the animated short Off His Rockers


For those interested in all things Oscar, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced this year's winners of their Governors (aka Honorary) Awards -- Donald Sutherland, writer-director Charles Burnett (Killer of Sheep, To Sleep with Anger), director-documentarian Agnes Varda, and, my favorite, cinematographer Owen Roizman (The Exorcist, The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, Tootsie). Since they began making the Governors Awards a separate ceremony in 2009 and expanding the number of awards each year, they've included some pretty awesome winners including some who might otherwise have been ignored, including Jackie Chan, Steve Martin, Hal Needham, Lynn Stalmaster, and one of my all-time heroes, cinematographer Gordon Willis.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

DARLING - Giona Ostinelli

"There’s an added supernatural layer to the psychological horror -- it’s strongly suggested that the hallucinations Darling experiences could be the result of a haunting, a Gothic angle that recalls the other two films in Polanski’s 'apartment' trilogy, 'Rosemary’s Baby' and 'The Tenant.' 'Darling''s derivative feeling isn’t helped by Keating’s decision to shoot the film in black-and-white and include anachronistic period details (note the old-school rotary telephones). Still, there are distinctive touches to give this passing interest. Most are technical: Cinematographer Mac Fisken’s ominously atmospheric use of the house’s yawning, wide-open spaces, Giona Ostinelli’s brooding electronic score, and editor Shawn Duffy and mixer M. Parker Kozak’s expressionistic sound design all invite us into Darling‘s damaged headspace."
 
Kenji Fujishima, Village Voice
 
"A house sitter goes crazy while confined to a building with an unsavory past -- sound familiar? The black-and-white 'Darling' owes much to 'The Shining,' from the chilling wails of its score to quite a few down-the-long-hallway shots."
 
Sara Stewart, New York Post
 
"Out come the time-honored trappings: the carving knife; a soundtrack alternating among ambient Lynchian strains, cheesy pop numbers and snatches of hard-core rock; lightning-fast shock cuts in the editing, including glimpses of dismemberment. But also present are impressive performances, especially a compellingly mercurial turn by the horror veteran Ms. Carter (a star of Mr. Keating’s 'Pod' and Lucky McKee’s 'The Woman'). Another invaluable asset is the director’s frequent cinematographer, Mac Fisken, whose gorgeous, haunting black-and-white compositions enlist the Manhattan cityscape as one more threatening entity."
 
Andy Webster, New York Times

"The scenario is simple to the extreme, but writer/director Keating provides enough stylistic flourishes to keep it interesting (the brief 75 minute running time doesn't hurt). Divided into chapters with such headings as 'Demon,' 'Inferno' and 'Thrills!!!,' the film is shot in starkly beautiful black & white with elegant camera compositions. The arresting sound design and discordant musical score further contribute to the ominous atmosphere." 
 
Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter

THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS - Nima Fakhrara
 
"But this is a horror flick, where story is sometimes less important than gory, and in that sense Simon often delivers on his promise, especially in the home invasion sequences, as well as during the frantic closing ketchup fest. Working with veteran horror cinematographer Dean Cundey ('Halloween'), the director takes his time to give each victim their due, using a ripe color palette to make the murders look both fresh and eerie, with Nima Fakhrara’s score accompanying the action in suspenseful ways."
 
Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

RACE - Rachel Portman
 
"As Owens begins to set new records at Ohio State and train for the Olympics, the International Olympic Committee decides whether the U.S. should boycott a competition that Hitler intends as a showcase for Nazi ideology and technology. Throughout, 'Race' spells out its drama in block letters, dialogue hitting every major theme and minor conflict, music swelling under each dramatic moment, and the camera lingering over a person’s name in a newspaper headline. The characters all look about twice as glamorous as their real-life counterparts, and almost all -- including Leni Riefenstahl (Carice van Houten), a Nazi propagandist portrayed as a gallant artist making an honest attempt to capture a golden moment—are defined by just one or two traits, which are established early and reinforced often."
 
Elise Nakhnikian, Slant Magazine
