The Kids Are All Inception (Weekly Links)

Dude could use some sleep: DiCaprio in Inception

Reviews I wrote for the Herald this week.

Inception. “Engrossing and gimmicky.”

The Kids Are All Right. “If your interest lies in politically correct characters who fit into cardboard-cutout shapes demonstrating how people should behave, then Cholodenko has failed you completely.”

Restrepo. “Images not commonly witnessed on movie screens.”

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. “Cheerfully familiar.”

Perrier’s Bounty. “The jokery is rarely slowed by flying bullets.”

Killing Kazstner. “We hear it from the man who assassinated him.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about Restrepo and war movies, hear from some vets calling in, and think about the battle scene in Forrest Gump in a new way: here. The movie bit kicks in around 14 minutes in.
