Yet having worked together on the impactful “Food, Inc.,” [Mark] Adler, and [Robert] Kenner also know there’s a serious point here for all of the snarky laughter they provide. And as the hugely entertaining “Merchants” reaches its sad, if still hopeful final point for a situation that’s pretty much irreversible, Adler’s once-humorous melodies darken to reveal themselves as serving as poignant food for thought. The result shows the power of documentary scoring to have all of the belief-changing impact of dramatized “fiction” film music, with “Merchant’s” musical impact showing just how well Adler is versed in both cinematic worlds. -Daniel Schweiger, Film Music Magazine
