Movies I reviewed for the Herald this week.
Whip It. “Hang-loose vibe, girl-power message.”
The Invention of Lying. “Something original, and the movie’s not at all a safe bet.”
Capitalism: A Love Story. “Overall shapelessness and reliance on old tricks.”
The Boys are Back. “If only the movie had the care and discretion of Owen’s performance.”
The September Issue. “The decisiveness and drive of Gen. Patton.”
Yoo Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg. “A rewarding acquaintance.”
Zombieland. “Wink-wink zombie jokes.”
This Sunday, come by the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, 2 p.m., as I give a free lecture on the revisionist Westerns of the late 60s-early 70s. More info here.
