Nuno Malo’s ‘Luv’ And Carter Burwell’s ‘Mr. Holmes’ Scores Are August Picks | Film Music Mag

When it comes time to go for big emotion, Malo brings in his string ensemble to shattering, soulful effect, along with an acoustical grittiness that resonates with the characters’ hard lives. Like much of Malo’s work, “LUV” is an affecting discovery that deserves to be seen, and heard.

As “Mr. Holmes’” comes to terms with his fate, Burwell invests some of the most gently moving emotion that the character has arguably gotten in all of his musical adventures for the big screen, of which this beguiling movie and score can indeed rank itself high.  Daniel Schweiger, Film Music Magazine
