Did You Hear About Avatar (Weekly Links)

Thanks to everyone who participated in the fifth annual Critics Wrap at the Frye Art Museum last night. And for those who didn’t get in (the auditorium was jammed), the event will be shown multiple times beginning New Year’s Eve on the Seattle Channel; check the lists and the TV playdates here (and will be viewable via SC’s website).

The Young Victoria. Kidding - Avatar, duh.

Reviews I wrote for the Herald this week:

Avatar. “Infectious glee.”

Did You Hear About the Morgans? “Nobody looks quite comfortable here.”

The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. “Funny, quick, and playful.”

Flame and Citron. “Maintains a taut tension throughout.”

Collapse. “A fine line between ‘visionary’ and ‘fruitcake.'”

And: Indiewire’s year-end (and decade-end) poll is up and about; link to my responses here. You can click on any of the category titles to get the overall results of the voters. (Balloting is not quite final as I write this.)
