Movie Diary 7/11/2012

Neil Young Journeys (Jonathan Demme, 2012). The music’s great, obviously, and the performance committed. Is it sacrilege to suggest a different filmmaker might bring a fresh perspective to the subject? (full review 7/20)

At What a Feeling!, we exhume a review of Paul Flaherty’s 18 Again!, in which George Burns spends most of his screen time in a plot-induced coma.

News on Framing Pictures: the June session is being broadcast (and re-broadcast) on the Seattle Channel, beginning Thursday night at 8:30 p.m.; you can see the schedule here. Seattle film critics and FP founders Richard T. Jameson, Kathleen Murphy, and I talk about Montgomery Clift, Jan Svankmajer, and some perhaps spoilerish stuff on Prometheus. Come ’round to the Northwest Film Forum at 5 p.m. on Friday for the live version of Framing Pictures (see the Upcoming Events tab for details).
