Skyfall Lincoln Details (Weekly Links)

Craig and Bardem: The couple that almost was, in Skyfall

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

Lincoln. “Credible, right-here-on-this-Earth life.”

Skyfall. “High-minded and self-referential.”

The Details. “Just a little too casual.”

Smashed. “Nothing if not sincere.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln and how it might fit the political mood. The talk is archived here.

Sunday afternoon at 2, see you at the Frye Art Museum for another installment of the Magic Lantern series of talks about film; this one looks at whether there might be a “moment of magnitude” in the local Seattle movie-making scene. The talk is free; details here.

Early warning: Friday, Nov. 16, join the Framing Pictures talkers for their monthly panel on movie happenings. It’s free; 5 p.m. at the Northwest Film Forum, with details here. Check our Facebook page for updates about what, exactly, we’ll be talking about this time.

At What a Feeling!, the week in 1980s films closes with a review of Peter Weir’s The Year of Living Dangerously, originally published in 1983 in The Informer.
