Iron Carnage (Weekly Links)

Unholy quartet: Carnage

Reviews I wrote this week for the Herald, and etc.

Carnage. “The way people stay in their cages, even when the exit is open.”

Contraband. “The first dumb-but-fun movie of 2012.”

The Iron Lady. “The political episodes exist only to demonstrate Thatcher’s toughness.”

El Sicario, Room 164. “The scariest 60 Minutes episode you never saw.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about political biographies, nudged by the Iron Lady release. The talk is archived here; the movie part rolls in at the 17:55 mark.

See you this evening at the Northwest Film Forum, where we sit down for a “Framing Pictures” conversation at 5 p.m. with NWFF Program Director Adam Sekular and sometime film critic Bruce Reid.

And see you at the Frye Art Museum Sunday afternoon for a DVD screening of Victor Erice’s The Quince Tree Sun, at 2 p.m., free.

At What a Feeling!, a week of 1980s reviews rounds off with Christopher Cain’s (and S.E. Hinton’s and Emilio Estevez’s) That Was Then…This Is Now.
