The latest release from Quartet is an expanded and remastered CD of Jerry Goldsmith's Oscar-nominated score for 1973's true-life prison escape drama PAPILLON, starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman and directed by one of the composer's most valued collaborators, Franklin J. Schaffner (Planet of the Apes, Patton).

Intrada plans to release one new two-CD set next week.

For Los Angeles-area moviegoers, the New Beverly Cinema has announced their July screening schedule, including their continuation of "Sci-Fi Summer," with the accent on Michael Crichton (yay!) and midnight Cronenberg screenings. Films screened next month include a week-long run of Bong Joon Ho's brand new Okja (screening in 35mm, though it was shot digitally), as well as The Last Starfighter (July 1-2), Videodrome (July 1), Jurassic Park (July 8-9), The Fly [1986] (July 8), Snowpiercer/Lifeforce [the longer, all-Mancini cut] (July 9-10), Westworld/Runaway (July 14-15), Innerspace (July 15-16), Rabid (July 15), The Andromeda Strain/The Terminal Man (July 21-22), SpaceCamp (July 22-23), Scanners (July 22), and Total Recall/The Running Man (July 28)

Our own Joe Sikoryak has informed me of this interesting update to the Grammys' rules regarding their soundtrack-related categories (see below the fold):

Two changes were made to the rules governing this field.
1. Regarding Best Song Written For Visual Media
It has long been policy that entrants may submit only one version of a song across all categories in which it is entered.  While that policy still holds for all other categories, in Best Song Written For Visual Media, the particular version of the song that was used in the visual medium may be entered, and a different version (e.g., a radio edit) may be entered in other categories.
2.Regarding Best Compilation Soundtrack
In order to be eligible for GRAMMY consideration, a qualifying soundtrack album for a documentary, biopic, or a work which combines the two forms, must now contain 51% or more of newly recorded music.  Category placement will be determined by the predominant nature of the newly recorded music -- song or score-featured in the visual medium, and the visual medium must also predominantly feature new recordings.
A soundtrack album which is a greatest hits/career retrospective is not eligible.
Additionally, the soundtracks of musical documentaries which are primarily “making of” works are no longer eligible in this category.

DON VERDEAN - Ilan Eshkeri
"The feature, which was partially shot in several churches in Utah (!), is otherwise competently assembled, with Ilan Eshkeri's varied score and Anne Auernig's costumes the below-the-line standouts."
Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
MEDITERRANEA - Dan Rohmer, Benh Zeitlin
"Initial scenes in Libya and on the treacherous sea lack a score altogether. However, once in Italy, music and ambient sounds creep in, so that film form literally empathizes with the film’s characters by paralleling their newly felt freedoms."
Clayton Dillard, Slant Magazine

MUSTANG - Warren Ellis
"It’s directed with such an assured and sophisticated hand that it’s easy to forget this is Ergüven’s debut. Co-written with Alice Winocour (director and co-writer of this year’s 'Disorder'), it’s a haunting family drama in which every character is rendered with touching sensitivity. Even the conservative relatives against which Lale rails aren’t depicted wholly as villains, highlighting Ergüven’s keen awareness of the delicacy of family bonds. Add to that the stunning depiction of the hot, hazy Turkish climate and a brilliant soundtrack by frequent Nick Cave collaborator Warren Ellis, and you won’t be able to get this film out of your head for months."
Yasmin Sulaiman, The List

"Ergüven and cowriter Alice Winocour have a keen understanding of teenage impetuosity and adult cruelty, visually and aurally assisted by David Chizallet's fluid rack-focus cinematography and Warren Ellis’s sensuous score."
Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader

"It all begins innocently enough on the last day of school with an expression of adolescent jubilation that will resonate with viewers regardless of ethnicity or age. Lale and her older sisters -- Sonay (Ilayda Akdogan), Selma (Tugba Sunguroglu), Ece (Elit Iscan) and Nur (Doga Zeynep Doguslu) -- dash down to the beach to frolic in the Black Sea with a few of their male classmates. As they splash, swim and engage in chicken fights, the mood is playful but infused with an underlying tension, thanks in part to the hum of a low-key, synth score."
Christy Lemire,

"But if the performances are superbly naturalistic, Warren Ellis‘ score unobtrusively fitting, and David Chizallet and Ersin Gök‘s photography subtly poignant, Ergüven’s relative inexperience shows in other ways. The shooting of the football crowd scene is very obviously not at a football game, and so becomes an almost surreal moment in a film that does not really deal in surreality. Lale’s voiceover is often unnecessary -- with the young actress doing such wonders with her lovably truculent character, we don’t need any more reasons to root for Lale, we’re already there. Most importantly, time, duration, and cause-and-effect are not particularly well established, so the film staggers rather than flows, especially in the beginning when it’s simply difficult to understand how a culture so repressive can have fostered five such willful, mischievous girls in the first place, with eldest being in her mid-teens already. They feel a little more like Westernized, or at least urbanized children, who have suddenly been dropped into this rural backwater situation rather than natural products of an environment in which they’ve always lived."
Jessica Kiang, IndieWire

"Visuals are maturely fluent in keeping with current arthouse aesthetics, with a particularly satisfying interplay of energetic and confined camera movements reflecting the situation inside and outside the increasingly prison-like house. Mathilde Van de Moortel’s editing has a dexterous elasticity, building excitement and tension at just the right moments -- the soccer scenes feel over-the-top, yet they function as pressure-releasers, and the build-up to the finale, whatever its implausibility, gets the heart racing. Warren Ellis’ music further ties the pic to an identifiable international cinema scene."
Jay Weissberg, Variety
"Shot in unfettered, naturalistic style in the atmospheric locations, Mustang has something of a frontier feel, an aspect nourished by the melancholy score of Warren Ellis, the Nick Cave collaborator known for his work on such unconventional Westerns as 'The Proposition' and 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.' But Erguven's film is also a suspenseful if somewhat improbable prison-break movie (albeit one that eschews standard devices of the genre), in which the oppressive wardens believe they are acting in the best interests of their charges."
David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
