“What Josiah Saw” is an odd duck, a movie that jumps genres but maintains a throughline of unsettling intensity before tying them all back together
“The soul of this land is captured in Robert Pycior’s strident, string-heavy score, which intermittently becomes overwhelming. In Eli’s chapter it becomes something more bluesy, even playful when tempered by other traditions. In Mary’s it is more modest, subdued, better suited to the dinner parties she can’t quite endure. Back on the farm it swells, unleashed. It is too much; everything is too much, and that’s entirely appropriate.”
"The more traditional horror beats for What Josiah Saw are expressed via Robert Pycior’s string-heavy score. Pycior going is strong and loud, making the instruments literally scream as they grab onto the heart and give it a good squeeze"
