Anatolian Reunion (Weekly Links)

Once Upon a Time in Anatolia

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

American Reunion. “Very little pastry.”

Once Upon a Time in Anatolia. “The more we get to know them, the greater the mystery becomes.”

The Salt of Life. “Not up to the standard of Mid-August Lunch.”

Footnote. “Pettiness, betrayal, back-biting.”

Four Lovers. “Too much flour in the wrong places?”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” we spoke of noir happenings in Seattle; the talk is archived here. The movie bit kicks in around the 21:40 mark.

Tonight (Friday) at 5 p.m. at the Northwest Film Forum, it’s another installment of “Framing Pictures,” three critics talking about movies in a longform sort of way. The critics are Richard T. Jameson, Kathleen Murphy, and myself, and the subjects will include Laura (a revival print shows at the NWFF) and critical reaction to The Hunger Games. Join the conversation; it’s a free event, with details here.

I’ll be leading a writing workshop called “How to Make Articulate Noise” at 826 Seattle on Tuesday night, April 10th, at 7 p.m. I think we’ll have a pretty good time, and the proceeds go to a good cause. Details here.

At What a Feeling!, another week of vintage Eighties reviews rounds off with pieces on Peter Hyams’ The Presidio and John Landis’s Coming to America.
