Links to reviews I wrote this week for the Herald, and etc.
Alex Cross. “Run-of-the-mill.”
Wuthering Heights. “Travel here at your own risk.”
Detropia. “Large empty spaces on display.”
How to Survive a Plague. “An admiring account.”
On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about Detropia and a bit about other recession films. Can’t find the link, but it’s probably archived somewhere on the station’s new web design.
This afternoon (Friday) come ’round for another session of Framing Pictures, a film-critical panel providing context for a variety of movie happenings in Seattle. This one’s free, at 5 p.m. at Northwest Film Forum, and features Richard T. Jameson, Bruce Reid, and myself.
Join us at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle on Sunday at 2 p.m. for “John Cage and Friends: An Afternoon of Music and Film,” including a couple of documentary looks at Cage and a performance of his notorious 4’33”. Details here.
Tuesday night, Oct. 23, I’ll be presenting “Alien Encounters: Sci-Fi Movies and the Cold War Culture of the 1950s,” a free talk at the Aberdeen Library, in Kurt Cobain’s home town, Aberdeen, WA, at 6:30 p.m.
