Sunday November 16 I’ll be at the Frye Art Museum presenting “Time as a Character in Contemporary Film,” a look at how filmmakers such as Richard Linklater, Bela Tarr, and Tsai Ming-liang incorporate the idea of Time in their movies. That’s at 2 p.m., and the talk is free. More info here.
Thursday December 18, please join us at the Frye Art Museum for the 10th annual Critics Wrap, a panel of Seattle film critics sorting through the movies of 2014. The event begins at 7 p.m. and is free. More information here.
This is out: My new book on the 1931 Frankenstein, from Columbia University Press. One place to get it is here.
Out now: the first two volumes of Rotten, a wild, provocative, and gory graphic novel I have co-authored with Mark Rahner (art by Dan Dougherty). It’s a zombie Western set in 1877, with overtones of recent U.S. political history. Or possibly undertones. Click on my Rotten tab above for further info and marching orders. Order the Rotten trade paperbacks at the Rotten website and see cover art here. The Rotten page at Moonstone, where you can also order the Rotten book The Lost Diary of John J. Flynn, U.S. Agent, is here. Check the Rotten music video here.
