That score comfortably played with colors from the past — Michael Nyman–like minimalism, French New Wave lyricism, and elegant orchestration — but with the undeniable stamp of an artist who has something to say. It’s the perfect combination for a series with one foot in film-music history, and one in the streaming future. – Vulture
