The Perfect Compliment to a Stellar Movie that can also Stand Alone

Intricate and minimalistic at the same time, this subtle yet moving soundtrack was a perfect compliment to the emotional complexities and slow-burning suspense of "Midnight Special." There's a driving force beneath the lullaby-like melodies that create just the right amount of building tension. This is a soundtrack capable of standing on its own apart from the stellar Jeff Nichols movie. Superb!


Intelligent, Compelling Movie

It's time to start noticing Michael Shannon for his amazing acting, than for his amazing jaw-line. He has shown us all that he isn't "just" a supervillain, or a mis-understood gangster, or even an over protective (but right after all) father. He is a talented actor with a respectable range. Definitely destined for much greater things, but Midnight Special should always be considered a proud accomplishment.
