Reviews I wrote for the Herald this week.
Alice in Wonderland. “A sequel to a movie we never actually saw.”
Brooklyn’s Finest. “A surface slickness and plenty of movie-grunge.”
The Girl on the Train. “Calm provocations.”
Prodigal Sons. “An uncomfortably voyeuristic edge.”
An Indiewire ballot: predictions on Who Will Win and Who Should Win, for both the Oscars and the Independent Spirit Awards: here.
And earlier this week on KUOW’s “Weekday” with Steve Scher, we talk about women directors and Kathryn Bigelow’s chances at Sunday’s Oscars. Archived here; the movie bit comes on 15 minutes into it.
