DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

BEAST - Steven Price
 
"As man vs. beast stories go, this one is neither the best nor the worst. Steven Price’s score keeps the tension high, and Elba and Copley are good enough actors to deliver even the most pedestrian dialogue with conviction. It also helps that the movie runs a tight 90 minutes. 'Beast' is no 'Jaws', but it’s no 'Jaws: The Revenge,' either."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
"Then again, Beavis and Butt-Head not changing is inherent to Beavis and Butt-Head. Were they to ever learn from their mistakes, they would not be Beavis and Butt-Head. Here, they are returned to the status quo, only this time in 2022, and only this time with a nicer TV. Nothing else is different. The key art provided by the studio only shows Beavis and Butt-Head doing regular Beavis and Butt-Head things, like standing and sitting on their couch. Even John Frizzell returns to write the score, leaning once again into his status as a Bernard Herrmann acolyte. One can only hope Judge found peace in returning to the well, too."
 
Don Sinacola, Paste Magazine 

BREAKING - Michael Abels
 
"The initial whiz-bang approach is alluring. Its decision to arrive quickly at the main plot, and to fill in the blanks later, offers the lingering sense that Easley’s actions are a foregone conclusion. Its cold, high-contrast palette, along with composer Michael Abel’s [sic] heavy, classically-influenced strings, help enhance the controlled chaos as the situation first unfolds. These introductory scenes are marked by stark visual shifts from cinematographer Doug Emmett, with focus blurs, Dutch angles, and askew framing that knock the other main characters -- outspoken branch manager Estel Valierie (Nicole Beharie) and distraught bank teller Rosa Diaz (Selenis Leyva) -- off their emotional axes. Chris Witt’s snappy editing even serves the dual purpose of orienting us within Easley’s darting paranoia (through quick cuts to the room’s many security cameras) and of establishing the geography of the tiny room where most of the film is set."
 
Siddhant Adlakha, IndieWire 
 
THE INVITATION - Dara Taylor
 
"To be fair, plenty of cinema’s bloodsuckers sip rather than guzzle -- from 1922’s 'Nosferatu' to the 'Twilight' films, vampires often seem pretty demure for carnivores, more focused on sex or style. In that vein (hah!), 'The Invitation' capitalizes mostly on the latter, and frankly could use more of the former. Felicity Abbott’s production design, all wrought iron gates and vaulted stone ceilings, sets off cinematographer Autumn Eakin’s sultry lighting, which is perfectly matched to Dara Taylor’s ominous orchestral score. There’s a delectably eerie shot of the manor’s library door, foreboding and shrouded in shadow, that effectively introduces the space as a character. Costume designer Danielle Knox’s outfits for Evie are sublime, from an 'Outlander' T-shirt to her wedding dress, crisp white with delicate red flowers. Emmanuel, of course, makes a fetching bride, and proves as compelling in survival mode as with romantic drama."
 
Jack Smart, The Onion AV Club

"At the same time, the movie is working overtime to set up the Abbey as a dark place full of shadows and menace. Production designer Felicity Abbott totally nails dressing the manor and its grounds with heavy fabrics, statues and artifacts. Then, characters like Mr. Fields lay it on thick by assigning the quintet of ethnically diverse maids brought onto the property for the wedding to retrieve things in wine cellars with absolutely no lights, or to clean the library -- deemed off-limits due to renovations. Of course, bad things happen in all those spaces and the subsequent doom begins to creep into Evie’s good time like icy fingers walking up her neck. And I mean that literally, because Thompson drops that old chestnut of a trope right into the mix along with an overly heavy use of Lewton Bus jump scares throughout. 'The Invitation' is a smorgasbord of goth visuals and techniques that any Hot Topic shopper will surely applaud. There’s even a bombastic score by Dara Taylor to emphasize that this movie has no interest in subtlety."
