But definitely beats the pants of the previous movie that did not feature Matt Damon. Luckily, the action and thrill of the previous movies are still here but what’s missing is the espionage factor as there are only so many secrets that are left to reveal. Pretty much everything has been revealed (and revealed again) in all the other movies. Still, there is a […]Read On »

Flowing with melodic grace from classical to electronic music, Canadian-born composer Lesley Barber is often an inward traveler when it comes to her character portraits. Amongst her numerous, and eclectically-styled scores, Barber has played the music of a woman trying to break out of WHEN NIGHT FALLS, found the inner courage within the Hebraic rhythms of a Hasidic wife discovering that she has A PRICE ABOVE RUBIES, or discovering the intoxicating darkness within a potential girls school while suspensefully reading THE MOTH DIARIES. Given Lesley Barber’s unique way of playing relationships, perhaps her most rewarding, if too long apart collaboration is with writer-director Kenneth […]Read On »
