SUNCOAST - Este Haim, Christopher Stracey
"With the cinematography by Bruce Francis Cole capturing the mid-2000s Florida setting and the score from Este Haim and Christopher Stracey helping to set the right mood, 'Suncoast' eschews heavy-handed messaging about whether one is really and truly alive when one cannot survive on their own in favor of a quietly moving, occasionally surprising and ultimately lovely and thought-provoking work."
Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times 

"Instead, she haphazardly shoves 'Suncoast''s sometimes-traumatic recollection into an annoyingly twee template, barely deep enough to wet your flip-flops. It doesn’t help that the only halfway realized location -- the hospice itself -- alternates violently between bittersweet gags featuring Kristine’s caustic treatment of everyone around her (all unforgiving, leaving Linney’s slight role out to dry) or blindsidingly cheap poignancy. We wander back over to the care facility, expecting to roll our eyes again as Linney lays into another unsuspecting nurse or grief counselor, and then the overbearing score kicks in to remind us how deeply sad it all is. As it’s all shot with the same sunny simplicity, the sonic gear-shift is the only stylistic tell that we should start sniffling. You can’t suddenly be serious when, at any moment, Woody Harrelson might wander over and start riffing."
Jacob Oller, Paste Magazine
"Shots of junky boardwalk gift shops and references to Anna Nicole Smith further locate 'Suncoast' in a particular time and place. Chinn created a comedy series called 'Florida Girls' for Pop TV in 2019 and the Florida of it all -- think a guy called Sweet N’ Low who sells fake IDs to teenagers == also provides the film with some much-needed laughs. 'Suncoast' is hardly riotous, however, and not just because it’s about death: There are a few moments of black comedy, but on the whole 'Suncoast' is quite mild, a tone that matches the sunny cinematography and the quirky score from Este Haim and Christopher Stracey."
Katie Rife, The Wrap 

"Though the roots of its tale are incredibly complicated, 'Suncoast' ultimately feels a little flattened out and smoothed along the edges. Even the cinematography by Bruce Francis Cole fails to capture the Floridian dinginess implied in the dialogue, and the score from Este Haim and Christopher Stracey is pleasant but unmemorable. It’s a movie that seems all too aware that life is hard, but desperately wants to simplify it. In doing that, it does a disservice to its own ideas."
Esther Zuckerman, IndieWire 

"Every time you grow weary of the movie’s schematic plot mechanics, its clumsy attempts to cover too many bases, its aughts-era emo needle drops and its absence of visual interest, the raw hurt of the director’s experience comes through with a ray of redeeming sensitivity. Those moments are often marked by Este Haim and Christopher Stracey’s pretty score."
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

Not sure why Screen Archives is saying that the deluxe editions of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and Hellboy II aren't releasing until late March. I just ordered HtTYD from Varese Sarabande and already have it. Presumably, Hellboy is also immediately available (looks to be on the website).
