Stone Red Nowhere (Weekly Links)

The world is at your command: Aaron Johnson, Nowhere Boy

Movies I reviewed for the Herald this week.

Nowhere Boy. “Shrewd portrait of future genius.”

Red. “A popcorn popper.”

Stone. “Staking out their turf in an acting workshop.”

A Matter of Size. “A practice that favors the heavy man.”

Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould. “These days he would undoubtedly have his own satellite-radio program.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about John Lennon; a little bit about Nowhere Boy, but mostly just about Lennon as icon, and the time I went to Liverpool. Listen here; the movie bit kicks in at 16:25, after a pledge-drive goof.
