Links to movies I reviewed for the Herald this week. Eh, sorry for the delay, the Crop Duster is on Spring Break. Posting will be spotty.
Water for Elephants. “Almost ancient.”
African Cats. “Disney Fashion.”
Bummer Summer. “Slouching toward a plot line.”
Zero Bridge. “Stuck in Kashmir.”
Circo. “The faded tinsel of the circus life.”
On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about our absurd interest in the British royal family, fueled by the many movies that chronicle such nonsense. It’s archived here; the movie bit probably kicks in around 15 minutes in.
At What a Feeling!, a Euro-Eighties week concludes with a highly tasteful offering from Rainier Werner Fassbinder called Querelle.
