Snow White Glory (Weekly Links)

Theron lies a tale: Snow White and the Huntsman

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

Snow White and the Huntsman. “None of the campy bad-girl fun of past Wicked Queens.”

For Greater Glory. “A curious blend of cornpone and calculation.”

The Samaritan. “It’s good to see a movie star bring his tools to work on something small-scale like this.”

And some picks for the upcoming week at the Seattle International Film Festival.

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about the blurring of the human face in films; literally, in the case of post-production airbrushing, but also in the non-there flatness of the digital image. The talk is archived here; the filmic conversation begins at the 17:30 mark.

At What a Feeling!, another week of 1980s reviews rounds off with a review of Ted Kotcheff’s forgotten 1989 film with Kurt Russell and Kelly McGillis, Winter People.
