The latest release from Intrada is a remastered reissue of one of Jerry Fielding's finest scores, THE NIGHTCOMERS, director Michael Winner's 1971 prequel to Henry James' The Turn of the Screw, most famously adapted in 1961 as The Innocents, starring Marlon Brando (!) as the brutish servant Quint.


The latest releases from Buysoundtrax and its affiliated labels include two from composer Joe Kraemer: THE JOE KRAEMER COLLECTION VOL. 1 (featuring The Hitcher II: I've Been Waiting and Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead) and RELATIVE DIMENSIONS: 60 YEARS IN TIME AND SPACE (music for Doctor Who audio adventures); and CLIFFHANGERS, featuring Joe Harnell music from the short-lived 1979 TV series.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

THE BOOK OF CLARENCE - Jeymes Samuel
 
"It’s in these pursuits during Book I and Book II that 'The Book of Clarence' is at its lightest and most comedic, adopting an almost laconic pacing as Clarence tokes and jokes with his friends until he comes up with the ridiculous plan to first become the 13th apostle, and then a parallel messiah. Aided by a lush score and an eclectic soundtrack brimming with knee-tapping original R&B and soul songs written (and mostly sung) by Samuel, Clarence amiably stumbles through a series of Biblically familiar sequences that test his fortitude and wit, and gain him allies the likes of freed gladiator Barabbas (Sy), local miscreant Zeke (Caleb McLaughlin) and even a befuddled Mary of Nazareth (Woodard)."
 
Tara Bennett, Paste Magazine

"Does it work? Sometimes! And it’s also sort of a mess. Samuel is telling a contemporary spin on the tale, and focuses a great deal on both Roman oppression and Clarence’s journey toward meaning and purpose -- to fully embody his potential, something that can only happen when he believes in God. Taking an occasional foray into magical realism, the movie is more concerned with the divinity inside Clarence than it is with Jesus’ work, which makes it not entirely clear why Jesus is even in this one. It’s an empowerment ballad, a plea with the audience to break free of their own chains. All of those themes muddle the mixture, and Samuel’s stylistic flourishes and musical cues get repetitive and overbearing after a while."
 
Alissa Wilkinson, The New York Times 
 
"Though its slickness -- exemplified by the tactile costumes (worn robes and inventive uses of gold) and delicately balanced, yet expansive wide-angle shots, is the film’s primary inviting feature, 'The Book of Clarence' is hampered by Samuel’s unbridled creativity. Similar to 'The Harder They Fall,' the filmmaker composed his film’s soundtrack. While some songs set a discerning, post-soul mood, sequences slowed to the speed of molasses exist to showcase the music more than push the narrative forward."
 
Robert Daniels, RogerEbert.com

"'The Book of Clarence' was filmed in Matera, Italy, whose historical quarters have frequently stood in for biblical settings, and all of its characters wear old-timey robes and, aside from Clarence, speak in indeterminate period-piece accents. But the film’s also freely anachronistic, from Samuel’s own R&B-inflected score to the eons-old take on a club where Jedediah hangs out."

Alison Willmore, New York   

"In 'The Book Of Clarence,' writer and director Jeymes Samuel ('The Harder They Fall') imagines a 13th apostle who lies his way into being a disciple of Jesus. Set in Jerusalem in the year 33, the film follows a charming small-time crook talented in the art of hustling. He’s not a believer in God, but rather someone who sees an opportunity to ride Jesus’ popularity for his own benefit. The premise is a fun sendup of classic bible movies like 'Ben-Hur' (1959) and 'The Tenth Commandment' [sic] (1956), and the film straddles the line between entertaining anachronism -- modern performances and soundtrack and tongue-in-cheek humor -- and respect for the religious framework. But it never fully commits to either stance, thus ending up an odd, albeit entertaining, mismatch of tones and themes.'The Book Of Clarence' has so many familiar characters that it becomes like watching an extended episode of 'RuPaul’s Drag Race,' with reveal after reveal. Samuel knows how to wring the most out of characters like Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Almost every significant character is revealed in the same way: the film’s main characters talk about them, they are first shown in shadow, with their back to the camera or behind a wall or another character, until the big reveal with the appropriate soundtrack fanfare and a knowing look from the actors. It’s fun and it ramps up the melodrama of the story."
 
Murtada Elfadl, The Onion AV Club 

"There is way more to the film’s plot but overexplaining would take all the fun away from what an explosive joy it is. It’s clever enough to pull off the concept while still making sure to not rely on it too much. Everything from the costumes, world-building, characterization, and in classic Samuel fashion, music, is outstanding.'The Book of Clarence' mixes history, fiction, and modernity to bring a hilarious spin on the story of Jesus Christ. Yeah, some Christians will find it offensive. It takes the piss out of the immaculate conception -- 'It’s a little far-fetched' -- and depicts Mary slapping Clarence for asking her if she really is a virgin. While Jesus himself isn’t the main attraction, the way he’s used and how the film parlays its plot into the story that we know today is one of its strongest elements. 'The Book of Clarence' doesn’t just rewrite history (or fiction, again, up to you), but it sprinkles out fun nods and resonant digs at what has happened in the world since this time. The choice to have every Roman guard, including Pontius Pilate (James McAvoy), sport imperial English accents is a great way to remind the audience that the Romans weren’t the only Empire to cause devastation. Clarence, trying to suck up to Pontius, tells him, 'My best friend is Roman' (this got huge laughs from the audience). Samuel does it subtly but these little details give the film an updated, current feel while still remaining rooted in its setting. Jerusalem City has different gangs, Clarence is told that he’s not welcome in 'Gypsy territory,' and Jesus Christ tells Jezebel that soon enough, everyone will know her name. The script is extremely sharp and paired with Samuel’s highly stylized directing and beautiful score and song choices, 'The Book of Clarence' is a feast for the eyes, ears, and mind. What you take from its philosophy is entirely subjective, but the ending is a beautiful mediation on what it means to have faith, and who is really deserving of the glory that we only reserve for white men."
 
Emma Kiely, Collider
 
"But give it up all the same for British writer/director/musician Jeymes Samuel on just his second feature, after the 2021 black western 'The Harder They Fall.' 'The Book of Clarence' features some exciting cinematography (especially in that opening race), a little magic realism (apparently in the first Century, drugs could make you literally high) and a soundtrack and score crafted by Samuel himself, and featuring a heavy dose of - what else? - soul."
 
Chris Knight, Original-Cin 
 
THE COLOR PURPLE - Kris Bowers (score); Brenda Russell, Allee Willis, Stephen Bray (songs)
 
"All of this works due to the amazingly gifted direction of Bazawule’s, a skillfully crafted screenplay from Marcus Gardley, stunning cinematography from Dan Laustsen and a score by the incomparable Kris Bowers, who does a wonderful job of marrying a new score with selections from the Broadway production. A perfect example is when Mpasi, with strength and tenacity after seeing her child, executes the song 'She Be Mine' through a chain gang of men and a flowing waterfall of women scrubbing laundry on washboards illustrating the grass roots of Celie’s journey into becoming reborn with a sense of renewal. Or, when Corey Hawkins (Harpo) breaks out into a rendition of 'Working' while building a home on the swamp waters. Bazawule seamlessly transitions from one moment to the next, expediently pacing the film without wearing out its welcome. Placing Celie on a giant record disc with Shug, naked in a tub, sets up the lesbian story line with respect and class. Their relationship is further solidified with a stunning, sophisticated jazz club rendition of 'What About Love' set in a movie theatre. It’s a little on the sappy side, yet somehow simple and sweet."
 
Cate Renata, The Wrap
 
"There are also a few musical numbers that feel expendable, not seamlessly included in the way some of the film’s major highlights do. Most of the time, though, the triumphant musical numbers are brimming with the full extent of their emotional intent. From 'Hell No''s prideful indignant attitude to the soul-stirring vulnerability and catharsis of 'I’m Here,' the choreography and vocal capabilities of the cast don’t go overlooked. In tandem, the American South is rendered in beautiful warmth and light, undeniably a character in and of itself, and expertly utilized in the film’s musical numbers."
 
Peyton Robinson, RogerEbert.com
 
"The director, Blitz Bazawule, a musician and filmmaker, announces his mashup of styles from the start. Celie (Phylicia Pearl Mpasi) is 14 and pregnant with her father's child, the second one he will soon give away for adoption. She and her sister, Nettie (Halle Bailey), are sitting in a tree singing, but almost instantly the entire screen explodes into song. Against the dusty backdrop of a small country town, men and women in bright colours sing a gospel song, and dance their way into church. Bazawule is a co-director of Beyonce's 'Black is King' filmed album, and there are echoes of her videos in the choreography and choruses of women here. The start and end of the film are rousing in the manner of Broadway opening and closing numbers, and the film never goes too long without a song backed by lush orchestrations. But there is also kinetic camerawork that follows the actors, and enough overhead shots so that it seems Bazawule is intent on proving that he's making a movie, not filming a stage show. When the story jumps ahead eight years, Fantasia Barrino takes over as Celie, the role she played in one of the two Broadway productions. In the first stretch, she is merely subdued, without revealing the cost of Celie's submission. But the songs and the performance get stronger as Celie's sense of her own worth grows, and Barrino's powerful singing voice takes over by the end."
 
Caryn James, BBC.com 
 
"And while much of its pleasure can be derived from its energetic, thoughtfully staged musical sequences, from Danielle Brooks’ show-stopping 'Hell No!' and Barrino’s tear-jerking 'I’m Here' to Taraji P. Henson’s riotous 'Push Da Button' and the dazzlingly mounted 'What About Love?' (even these four standouts are only a taste of the musical thrills that kit out the film), the real draw of 'The Color Purple' are its stars. To say the film is inhabited by some of the brightest talents Hollywood has to offer barely scratches the surface. From Barrino to Henson, Domingo to Corey Hawkins as Mister’s son Harpo, 'The Color Purple' is a strong contender for best-cast studio film of the year (its only possible competition is Warner Bros. sister feature, 'Barbie')."
 
Kate Erbland, IndieWire

"Music was always a part of 'The Color Purple' (especially the Broadway tunes by Brenda Russell, Allee Willis, and Stephen Bray), and so the musical sequences here make sense. They are energetically shot and choreographed, driving the narrative forward. As in any great musical, director Blitz Bazawule understands that when emotions swell, music can be more effective than words at capturing a character’s truth. Thankfully, these performances and songs carry the film through its structure, which is distinctly different from the 1985 script by Menno Meyjes. Some of the restructuring in Marcus Gardley's new script makes sense to make room for musical numbers or streamline the story, but it can take away from impactful sequences in the original. Take, for instance, the placement of 'Miss Celie’s Blues,' composed for the 1985 film by Quincy Jones. When Shug serenades Celie, it makes her feel beautiful and seen for the first time, a pivotal, moving point in the story. In the original film, Shug performs the song at Harpo’s juke joint, giving Celie her flowers in front of the whole community. In this adaptation, the song comes into play later, and its presence is welcome but less impactful. We’ve already seen Shug and Celie come together romantically, and what should be a memorable start to their relationship feels like an afterthought. It’s a small change that felt unnecessary."
 
Alejandra Martinez, The Austin Chronicle 

"While Bazawule and fellow executive music producers Baxter and Bray honor the musical’s stylistic mix of gospel, pop, R&B, blues, jazz and Broadway show tunes, there’s also a welcome contemporary flavor to some of the numbers here, notably 'Keep It Movin’,' led by Bailey’s young Nettie in gorgeous voice."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

NIGHT SWIM - Mark Korven
 
"And on that note, perhaps the most tragic sin that 'Night Swim' commits is that it just isn’t scary. With all of the baseball scenes, the film hardly has time for actual horror. As a result, there are only a handful of horor-centric scenes, and those scenes are pretty much just the same jumpscare over and over, with screeching musical accompaniment reminding us that we should be scared."
 
Aurora Amidon, Paste Magazine 

OUR SON - Ola Fløttum 
 
"The film builds some poignancy once it tightens its focus on Nicky, first in a lovely interlude with Owen at Coney Island and then alone, as he reaches a heartbreaking decision and eventually makes peace with it. In the less showy of the two lead roles, Evans is quietly moving in the closing scenes. But 'Our Son' -- underscored with somber music from frequent Joachim Trier composer Ola Fløttum -- is too one-note to have much emotional impact, its characters too carefully balanced and inoffensive to be interesting. Mostly, it plays like a decorous old-school telemovie, well-meaning but dull."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
