Biutiful Sanctum (Weekly Links)

Javier Bardem, Biutiful

Movies I reviewed for the Herald this week, & etc.

Sanctum. “In touch with the prototypical 15-year-old popcorn-munching moviegoer.”

Biutiful.”Slogs through the stations of this film’s slaughterhouse with tarnished heroism.”

Nénette. “Who says an orangutan’s eyes are mournful, anyway?”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about the late John Barry, and a few listeners chime in with favorite film scores. Listen here; the movie bit starts with a Goldfingeresque flourish at 16:13.

At my other website, What a Feeling!, I continue revisiting original Eighties reviews. Today it’s Aliens, a real mother of a movie.
