Hit and Rush (Weekly Links)

Everybody needs to get a haircut: Cosmopolis

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

Premium Rush. “Not a masterpiece, not hardly. But…”

Cosmopolis. “Cronenberg’s skill is razor-sharp.”

Hit and Run. “A layer of humor that would doubtless be excused as racial rather than racist, and at that point – well, fine line, and all that.”

Compliance. “Utter creepiness.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about the subversive casting in Cosmopolis, and a few other Cronenberg notes. The session is archived here; the movie section bows at the 18:30 mark.

At What a Feeling!, pause to consider the sweet spot between the ridiculous and the sublime, as we dig out a vintage review of Rowdy Herrington’s Road House.
