Let Me Network (Weekly Links)

Timberlake and Eisenberg, posting status

Reviews I wrote for the Herald this week.

The Social Network. “Smart, swift momentum.”

Buried. “Crazy and sort of astounding.”

Let Me In. “Softly falling snow.”

Waiting for “Superman.” “At least as troubling as global warming.”

Freakonomics. “A little too cutely.”

Cell 211. “Monzon loses his early grip on plausibility.”

An interview with Waiting for “Superman” director Davis Guggenheim.

And on Wednesday I talked on KUOW’s “Weekday” with Steve Scher about characters whose cultural impact become the opposite of what was intended; Wall Street‘s Gordon Gekko and Scarface‘s Tony Montana among them. Listen here; the movie bit kicks in at the 15-minute mark.
