Five-Year Distress (Weekly Links)

MacLemore, Gerwig, Echikunwoke: Damsels surveying a playboy or operator type

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

Damsels in Distress. “Demure gang of self-appointed nurturers.”

The Five-Year Engagment. “The dawdling.”

The Raven. “About as lively as Poe’s M. Valdemar.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” we speak of movies that draw historical figures into fantastic situations, such as The Raven and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. The talk is here; the movie conversation begins at the 21-minute mark, if you slide the cursor along the player. 

At What a Feeling!, the week of British Eighties films rounds off with something short and sweet on Alex Cox’s Sid and Nancy.
