The Kid Undefeated (Weekly Links)

Thomas Douret, Cecile de France, with bikes

Links to reviews I wrote this week for the Herald, and etc.

The Kid with a Bike. “Actual empathy, the ability to imagine what it must be like to be in someone else’s shoes.”

Undefeated. “These are make-or-break moments.”

Kati with an I. “An unusual degree of un-selfconsciousness.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher and Marcie Sillman about Cary Grant, subject of an upcoming series at the Grand Illusion theater. The talk is archived here; amidst the pledge drive talk, the movie bit kicks in at the 20-minute mark.

At What a Feeling!, another week of 1980s films ends with a review of Ross McElwee’s classic documentary, Sherman’s March.

Upcoming: On April 10, I preside over a workshop in 826 Seattle’s series “How To Write Like I Do,” an adult writing series that benefits the mission of 826 Seattle. Mine is called “How To Make Articulate Noise,” and details can be found here.

This weekend, visit the Rotten table at Emerald City ComicCon, held at the Convention Center in Seattle. If you can’t make it, you can buy your Rotten books, including the new  Lost Diary of John J. Flynn, U.S. Agent, from the publisher. In fact you should probably do that now.
