Reviews I wrote for the Herald this week.
Dinner for Schmucks. “Oddly bittersweet for a slapstick comedy.”
South of the Border. “A little skepticism could’ve worked wonders here.”
Countdown to Zero. “This’ll slay you.”
Stonewall Uprising. “Getting a piece of American history down.”
Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. “Building cat robots.”
Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo. “Rapturous shots of fireflies bobbing at night.”
And on KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about the filmmakers (and TV-makers) whose work reflects our times in the way Frank Capra’s movies caught the 1930s: here. The movie bit begins about 11 minutes in.
