‘Holbrook/Twain: An American Odyssey’ – THR Review.

“Most of the movies in the section are narrative features, but one documentary, Holbrook/Twain: An American Odyssey, stands out as one of the best films showcased in the entire festival…the lovely score by Heather McIntosh never overpowers the action.”

The Hollywood Reporter

Circulatory System – Pitchfork Review.

“It’s a record just as baffling as it is beguiling, a grownass symphony to god, a journey to the center of Hart’s expansive mind. No one’s making music quite like this, not even the people who helped Hart making this very music, so if we’ve got another five years to wait for another Circulatory System album, the spiraling mysteries at the center of Mosaics should be more than enough to hold us.”

“Catching Up With Heather McIntosh” – Paste Magazine.

“Paste: We’re here with Heather McIntosh, an amazing composer whose work you might have most recently heard in Craig Zobel’s masterpiece Compliance. You’re here with more projects at SXSW this year, correct?

Heather McIntosh: I’m here, actually, with three films. Faults, directed by Riley Stearns, and I’m here with a Midnighter film called Honeymoon, directed by Leigh Janiak, and then I’m also here with a documentary I co-composed with T. Griffin, called Vessel, which is a documentary about ladies on the high seas offering abortions to people where you can’t quite have them. That’s my three.”
