DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

AFTER BLUE (DIRTY PARADISE) - Pierre Desprats

"If this all sounds like a lot to process, at times, it is. 'After Blue (Dirty Paradise)' is a singular stylistic vision, and it’s much less concerned with making sure you’re on the same page with its plotted machinations than in immersing you in its otherworldly glamour, in no small part assisted by an ethereal score by Pierre Desprats. And yes, with a runtime of over two hours, the persistent barrage can become exhausting, letting the novelty of its presentation wear thin as one becomes acclimated to the otherworldliness."
 
Leigh Monson, The Onion AV Club 
 
"In his role as maestro, Mandico has assembled all the requisite elements and players to form a wholly original cinematic world. In addition to inspired casting (Pons and Löwensohn are particularly electric), that includes a hypnotic new wave score composed by Pierre Desprat; grotesquely visceral and otherworldly sets overseen by art director Thomas Salabert; rags-to-fashion costumes by Pauline Jacquard; and make-up artists Bénédicte Trouvé and Sarah Pariset."
 
Jude Dry, IndieWire
 
COSTA BRAVA, LEBANON - Nathan Larson
 
"'Costa Brava, Lebanon' is lightly embellished with magic realist flourishes, just as Nathan Larson’s pleasant score lets lightly humorous horns meld with more winsome, minor-key melodies. The bright, sun-splashed daytime, during which Joe Saade’s camera roves in among the chickens and the kids’ kicking legs, segues softly into more dreamlike, low-lit nighttime scenes that occasionally turn surreal."
 
Jessica Kiang, Variety 
 
GONE IN THE NIGHT - David Baldwin
 
"Present throughout the entirety of 'Gone in the Night' is a frustrating push-and-pull motion. Where the premise succeeds, the storytelling method fails. Where the creeping score and cool-paletted cinematography do wonders to instill dread and anxiety in the viewer, the rapid editing and awkward scene transitions quickly disperse those feelings. And where Ryder gives a masterfully restless performance and Gallagher Jr. brings effortless charisma and charm to his role, Teague and Tju are distractingly cloying and cartoonish to no apparent end. In psychological thrillers, it’s practically a prerequisite that, throughout the story, there should be the feeling that something just isn’t right. Indeed, this is the case with 'Gone in the Night' -- just not in the way you’d hope."
 
Aurora Amidon, Paste Magazine 

"This early section of the film should vibrate with anxiety, but uninspired framing, cutting and writing sap it of energy. Any sense of danger or darkness is not so much teased out as presented in bold and all caps: Al and Greta are cartoonishly creepy; Max is only slightly less cartoonishly dopey; consequently, the stakes feel low all around. The onus is on Ryder’s ability to elicit the viewer’s protective instincts, as well as an eerie score by David Baldwin, to eke out the tiniest sliver of tension."
 
Jon Frosch, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
NOPE - Michael Abels

"One early sequence fools us into believing Peele will take the 'Signs' approach to alien life only to turn around and refute that after a sharply conceived 'sighting.' Though in an exponentially larger league, 'Nope' calls to mind 'The Vast of Night,' a recent indie, period sci-fi that gets by not on what it shows but in the atmosphere it evokes. To immerse us in its terror, 'Nope' relies on how the score by Peele’s regular composer Michael Abels disrupts the silence at precise instances in a sonic choreography with the sound design -- truly one of the most accomplished below-the-line elements on display."
 
Carlos Aguilar, The Playlist 
 
"That creeping sense of the uncanny is underpinned by Michael Abels’s terrific orchestral score -- all jittery strings and drums like earthquakes -- and some magnificently loud and unearthly sound design. Lupita Nyong’o’s hellish croak in 'Us' is officially no longer the most terrifying sound in the Peele canon."
 
Phil de Semlyen, Time Out 

"There’s a lot going on here, in other words, even before 'Nope' turns our attention toward that giant disc flying ominously overhead, unleashes a hellish rain over the Haywoods’ ranch and cranks up the volume on its shrieking, juddering soundtrack. (There are moments when Michael Abels’ nerve-shredding score plays like a veritable symphony of human screams.) But if the story is a welter of subplots, tangents and ideas -- to the point of being overly taken at times with its own conceptual daring -- Peele’s visual craft shows an admirable finesse and discretion. He long ago absorbed the key lesson of 'Jaws,' namely that what we don’t see is almost always scarier than what we do see, and that delayed gratification can amplify the power of suggestion. And so for a lengthy stretch he keeps his secret weapon a legitimate secret, with the unspoken assurance that everything (or at least a lot) will be revealed in due course."
 
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
 
"The second half of 'Nope' is a steady crescendo of action, terror, and suspense, with grand-scaled and at times horrifically violent set pieces that alternate between the theme park and the ranch. The 65mm cinematography by sci-fi master Hoyte van Hoytema ('Interstellar,' 'Ad Astra,' 'Tenet') captures the awe-inspiring otherness of the alien against a landscape familiar from Cinemascope Westerns of yore. Michael Abels’ score nimbly leaps from ambient horror-movie creepiness to a whistled Western-style theme straight from a Sergio Leone soundtrack. Also whirling around in Peele’s genre blender are Cold War flying-saucer pictures like T'he Day the Earth Stood Still,' the Cary Grant-in-a-cornfield chase from Hitchcock’s 'North by Northwest,' a cleverly re-imagined pull from Spielberg’s 'Jaws,' and at least one nod to M. Night Shyamalan’s alien-invasion fantasy 'Signs.'"
 
Dana Stevens, Slate.com 
 
"Peele has assembled a first-rate cast, and the results are electric. Whatever shortcomings the screenplay may have in fleshing out their characters, Kaluuya, Palmer, Perea, Yeun and Wincott deliver memorable turns, successfully balancing 'Nope''s comedic notes with its more haunting, suspenseful overall mood. Hoyte van Hoytema’s engulfing cinematography and Michael Abels’ pulsating score help sustain the film right up through its transfixing end. It won’t be to everyone’s taste, but 'Nope' offers up a glutton’s feast for Peele disciples and fans of brainy sci-fi thrillers, ushering the director into an intriguing new phase of cinema that’s as rhapsodic as it is demanding."
 
Lovia Gyarkye, The Hollywood Reporter 

SPIDERHEAD - Joseph Trapanese

"That said, Kosinski and his collaborators amplify the characters, their conflicts and conundrums with cinematic language. There’s strong visual dexterity in its use of montage, where Claudio Miranda’s cinematography and Stephen Mirrione’s sharp edits come into lockstep, ramping up tension and electricity, keying the audience into the stakes and psyches. Jeremy Hindle’s Brutalist-meets-Scandinavian-cabin production design and Amelia Gebler’s connective costume design clue us into the perspectives and personalities at play. Joseph Trapanese’s compositions, which oscillate from delightfully humorous to oppressively foreboding, complement the narrative’s tonal swings. Soundtrack selections like 'The Logical Song,' 'Feels So Good,' 'What A Fool Believes,' and 'Crazy Love' run concurrent to the escalating drama, exhibiting both sonic and narrative purpose."
 
Courtney Howard, The Onion AV Club 
 
"Hemsworth plays Abnesti as such a hollow man that it’s clear early on that he isn’t what he seems. But he keeps the character grounded enough that he doesn’t spin out into Bond-villain territory. As a way of regulating the audience’s emotions, that performance is effective -- more so than the musical palette (jazz for sardonic moments, strings for sentimental ones), which is both manipulative and predictable. In general, 'Spiderhead' works better when it’s operating on a tongue-in-cheek register rather than a heartfelt one. Reese and Wernick’s attempts to add emotionally charged backstory to these characters play like the padding that they are; it’s obvious that 'Spiderhead' is a 106-minute film based on a brief, dialogue-driven short story."
 
Katie Rife, Polygon 

SPIN ME ROUND - Pino Donaggio
 
"An interesting comedic exercise, this is Baena’s least eccentric outing yet (considering there are no jealous zombies or foul-mouthed nuns), but it’s perhaps his most narratively ambitious, in terms of its genre playfulness and a clear objective of dismantling its protagonist’s false illusions. Both the score (by veteran composer Pino Donaggio) and Sean McElwee’s cinematography go along with variations in tone. Just as the music goes from happy-go-lucky, jingle-like cheer to suspensefully ripe enough for a James Bond film, the lighting choices become more purposefully on the nose to reflect the terror Amber perceives all around her. There’s a thematic and practical synergy that’s far more impressive than some of the dry-humor gags that don’t amount to much."
 
Carlos Aguilar, The Wrap 

"As Nick seduces Amber, the film plays with romance tropes. A sequence where Amber is whisked away for a dreamy day on Nick’s yacht by his sullen assistant Kat (Aubrey Plaza) is filmed like a hazy fantasy, with swelling music and lots of close-ups on Nick’s face, eyes, and lips as Amber daydreams about a fling with a rich man while he tells her about his life. Unfortunately, this exercise in style alone doesn’t help the film reach the fully satirical heights it aims for."  
 
Marya E. Gates, The Playlist 
 
SUMMERING - Drum & Lace
 
"The opening sequence of James Ponsoldt’s 'Summering' sets up an idyllic summer in the suburbs, as four friends run carefree from yard to yard through sprinklers casting rainbows over the perfectly cut grass. Everything has a nostalgic patina to it, down to the treacly score mixed with the innocent laughter of the girls at play. 'The summer when it lasts, everything is alive and anything’s possible ... at least it feels that way,' a girl named Daisy (Lia Barnett) shares over a narration that is sporadically deployed throughout the film."
 
Marya E. Gates, RogerEbert.com 

"The film opens amusingly, with four tween friends (Dina, Lola, Daisy, and Mari) in a game of hide-and-seek that’s shot and scored like a set piece in a suspense picture -- underlining that at this age, 'play' doesn’t feel like play, and your imagination can make the stakes of even silly time-killers feel high. They take off, running and giggling and somersaulting through the sprinklers, careening into the last weekend of the summer before middle school. Ponsoldt nicely captures the feel of having nowhere to go with your friends, with nothing to do but take long, wandering walks, chatting and imagining your future."
 
Jason Bailey, The Playlist
