Mark Kermode of The Guardian selects Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire movie (score by Ex Machina’s Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury) for film of the week! See the full review here. While the film is now playing in UK cinemas, folks across the pond will be suiting up for the US theatrical release later this month.
Free Fire’s sharp jukebox choices chime with Martin Scorsese’s role as executive producer… But it’s Ex Machina composers Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury who add musical light and shade, moving from a plaintive western-inflected Spanish guitar theme through squishy keyboard arpeggios to punch-drunk percussive jazz beats as the rhythm of the gunfire increases. – Mark Kermode, The Guardian
