LAMB - Thórarinn Gudnason 
"A sense of foreboding hangs over the proceedings, the score grinding with an industrial intonation, humming over the misty mountains and their snowy secrets. But fundamentally, 'Lamb' is a folk tale, bookended with elements of horror, typical of darker fables; legends abound in the film, whether on a TV or in 'The Story of Dimmalimm,' about a princess who falls in love with a swan who turns into a prince."
Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
"That happens first when Pétur continues to hit on his sister-in-law, perhaps suggesting a history between them. But his troublesome advances are nothing compared to the payback that nature — or some arcane folkloric version of it -- has in store for them. The writers finally reveal the reason for the couple’s early sorrow, which made them so desperate for a new beginning that they never questioned the oddity of their discovery or whether they had any right to claim it as their own. All this turns up the shattering impact of the climactic tragedy, played out over the majestic solemnity of Thórarinn Gudnason’s score."
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

THE LAST DUEL - Harry Gregson-Williams
"The director is more at home once he gets Jean and Le Gris in the jousting arena for France’s last sanctioned duel. Their fight to the death with lances, swords and daggers is filmed up close with a visceral charge that takes Scott back to 'Gladiator' territory. This is also where Dariusz Wolski’s cinematography and Harry Gregson-Williams’ score do yeoman’s work. The CG enhancement of some of the cityscapes and crowd scenes could be less obvious, but overall this is a handsome production, with particularly fine, detailed work from costume designer Janty Yates. (Can’t wait to see what she does with Scott’s imminent high-fashion homicide saga, 'House of Gucci.')"
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
