Wuthering Cross (Weekly Links)

Solomon Glave, wuthering

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

Alex Cross. “Run-of-the-mill.”

Wuthering Heights. “Travel here at your own risk.”

Detropia. “Large empty spaces on display.”

How to Survive a Plague. “An admiring account.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about Detropia and a bit about other recession films. Can’t find the link, but it’s probably archived somewhere on the station’s new web design.

At What a Feeling!, return to the 1980s with vintage reviews of Buddy Van Horn’s Pink Cadillac and Steven Spielberg’s The Color Purple.

This afternoon (Friday) come ’round for another session of Framing Pictures, a film-critical panel providing context for a variety of movie happenings in Seattle. This one’s free, at 5 p.m. at Northwest Film Forum, and features Richard T. Jameson, Bruce Reid, and myself.

Join us at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle on Sunday at 2 p.m. for “John Cage and Friends: An Afternoon of Music and Film,” including a couple of documentary looks at Cage and a performance of his notorious 4’33”. Details here.

Tuesday night, Oct. 23, I’ll be presenting “Alien Encounters: Sci-Fi Movies and the Cold War Culture of the 1950s,” a free talk at the Aberdeen Library, in Kurt Cobain’s home town, Aberdeen, WA, at 6:30 p.m.
