The latest release from Intrada is an expanded, remastered two-disc edition of one of James Horner's very first feature film scores, for producer Roger Corman's 1980 Seven-Samurai-in-space BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS, a lively musical homage to the tradition of Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams which almost certainly earned Horner his breakout assignment scoring Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan two years later. Disc One features the full score, more than an hour of music, and Disc Two features the original LP sequencing.


The latest releases from Quartet are a remastered edition of Michael J. Lewis' score for the 1973 dark comedy horror film THEATRE OF BLOOD, starring Vincent Price, Diana Rigg and a supporting cast of top Briitish talent; and a 30th anniversary re-release of the two-disc edition of Trevor Jones' popular score for the 1993 action hit CLIFFHANGER.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

THE AFRICAN DESPERATE - Aunt Sister, Colin Self, Ben Babbit

"Synced to the glitchy rhythms of an electronic score by Aunt Sister, Colin Self, and Ben Babbit, the film’s editing reflects this hyperlink mentality, recalling Zadie Smith’s assertion that novelists need no longer describe real-world objects or places in detail; a reader can Google them in a fraction of the time. This breakneck style captures the ephemeral, hermetic atmosphere of both the art scene and online culture, which can seem caught up in a virtual arms race to those on the periphery. 'The African Desperate' embodies this feeling, at once exhilarating and anxiety-inducing, while sharing Palace’s leery outsider’s stance toward it."
 
William Repass, The Austin Chronicle
 
"Palace oscillates between this sense of incredulity and indifference as she encounters various shades of ignorance and insensitivity from her teachers and peers. With its everyday setting and social interactions mixed with an obtrusive, innovative soundtrack (composed by the band Aunt Sister, along with Colin Self and Ben Babbit) and hyperactive visual style, “The African Desperate” straddles the line between shock and banality."
 
Susannah Gruder, IndieWire 

BEYOND UTOPIA - Adam Taylor, Taylor Page
 
"The engrossing, often tense proceedings are slightly marred by a pushy score. All the same, being able to experience the escape alongside these subjects greatly distinguishes this documentary."
 
Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times 

RUSTIN - Branford Marsalis

"'Rustin' presents its protagonist as a revolutionary who neither hid his homosexuality and communist affiliations nor went out of his way to antagonize the powers-that-be that frowned upon them. By 1963, he’s toiling away in the War Resisters League while living his defiantly proud life, much of it shared with white boyfriend and 'assistant' Tom (Gus Halper), to whom he’s unwilling to fully commit. One night, inspiration strikes, and like the entirety of the film, it’s dramatized to the sound of Branford Marsalis’s scintillating jazz score. Playful bass, blaring horns, twinkling piano and rat-a-tat-tat drums give the action its highly charged spirit, matching Rustin’s breakneck and passionate energy and, also, subtly suggesting the dangers of moving forward so boldly."
 
Nick Schager, The Daily Beast 

"George C. Wolfe’s 20th century historical film 'Rustin' could have been subtitled, 'Traditional Biopic of Worthy Subject Told in Straightforward, No-Nonsense Fashion,' for it is reminiscent of dozens if not hundreds of entries in this genre, at times resembling a solidly researched Wikipedia entry brought to life. More often than not, the dialogue turns into quotable speechifying and the overwrought score pounds the points home in decidedly unsubtle fashion, but thanks to the performances of an outstanding ensemble led by Colman Domingo’s electric and moving work in the title role, this is a valuable portrait of a man who hasn’t exactly been forgotten to history but is hardly a household name. (He should be.)"
 
Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times 

"That can-do spirit is aided by Branford Marsalis’ jazzy beats -- at times, as great an asset to 'Rustin' as Domingo’s performance -- keeping the focus on the energizing bliss of teamwork and the power of well-organized collaboration. It’s far from a perfect movie, but hopefully one that will lead the way to further gratitude to a peerless American hero."
 
Tomris Laffly, The Wrap 

"What saves “Rustin” from your -- or at least my -- most cynical expectations of it is that it strives to capture his essence in other ways. Clumsy as it can be, Dustin Lance Black and Justin Breece’s mile-a-minute script reflects the upbeat (and sometimes very sassy) enthusiasm of Rustin’s electric mind, while Branford Marsalis’ jazz score maintains the buoyancy of a man who refused to be kept down, and Tobias Schliessler’s drab-as-hell digital cinematography, um… never lets you lose sight of the ugliness that Rustin is hoping to remove from American life. "
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 
 
"The film shines brightest when it’s in frantic mode, its jazz soundtrack blaring as Andrew Mondshein’s occasionally overwound editing makes the act of arranging transportation, food, water, and financing for hundreds of thousands of people in a mere eight weeks into a spectacle. As a demonstration of the collective effort it takes to pull off such an event, the film effectively communicates Rustin’s leadership genius, as well as the hostility he faced from his supposed allies in the NAACP and from other Black leaders."
 
Leigh Monson, The Onion AV Club 
 
"'Rustin' opens with two fast-moving segments, enriched by Branford Marsalis’ vibrant score and cut with propulsive energy by Andrew Mondshein. The pre-title sequence encapsulates the state of American racial justice in the years after the Supreme Court ruled in 1954’s Brown v. Board of Education that segregation is unconstitutional. Next, a quickly covered piece of background reveals how the NAACP, under the leadership of Roy Wilkins (Chris Rock), shut down Bayard’s attempts to organize a protest at the Democratic convention, and how the betrayal shattered his friendship and political bond with Martin Luther King (Aml Ameen, nailing the famous intonation and magnetism in understated fashion). It was Bayard, a devotee of Gandhi’s methods and philosophy, who made a convincing case to King about nonviolent resistance."
 
Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter 

SLASH/BACK - the Halluci Nation, Michael Brook

"Innuksuk is working with a cast of newcomers of varying acting skill; but her story (co-written with Ryan Cavan) is simple and specific enough that these kids are allowed to bring a lot of themselves to their roles. 'Slash/Back' hits its genre beats fairly well, with some nifty-looking beasties and crisp action sequences, set to a memorable ethno-tronica score by the Halluci Nation. But it’s the moments of more personal observation -- about how the girls relate to each other, to their elders, and to a culture that’s a sometimes uneasy blend of Canadian and Indigenous -- that gives this picture its spark of originality. There are lots of genre movies like this. None are this one."
 
Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times  
 
"So even accounting for the growing pains that come with a small budget and a cast of unknowns, Slash/Back delivers the goods. From a soundtrack of First Nations artists -- including a score by the award-winning electronic group the Halluci Nation (fka A Tribe Called Red) -- and stunning landscape cinematography by Guy Godfree, there are so many dynamic elements in 'Slash/Back' that cause the film to punch way above its weight class. Fingers crossed that this is just the first of many doors to open for Innuksuk and her talented cast."
 
Matthew Monagle, The Austin Chronicle
