Links to reviews I wrote for the Herald, and etc.
The Thing. “A reasonable job of keeping the screws tightened.”
Footloose. “Like watching a tribute band imitate the original.”
The Big Year. “It never feels like a real movie.”
Trespass. “It shames me to say I enjoyed this trashy movie.”
On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about the re-dos of Footloose and The Thing and why someone thought we needed them. The session is archived here; the movie bit kicks in around 20:15 or thereabouts.
On Sunday afternoon, I’ll introduce a screening of Nicolas Philibert’s Nénette, his 2010 documentary about a longtime resident of the Paris Zoo. That’s 2 p.m. at the Frye Art Museum, free; more details here.
