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

Lore. “Not quite breathing on its own.”

The Monk. “Some of the overheated atmosphere of Les Miz without the songs.”

Yossi. “Exactly the right note of ‘What next?’ for the characters.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Marcie Sillman about the Oscars, Seth MacFarlane’s lousy hosting job, and how I am now out of touch with the way Oscar voters think after 50 years. It’s archived here.

Sunday night March 10 I’ll be interviewing producer Michael Benaroya onstage at SIFF Cinema Uptown at 7:30, prior to a screening of his 2012 film The Words; this is the closing night event of the Seattle Jewish Film Festival. Info here.

Wednesday night, March 13, join me for “End of the Trail: How the Western Movie Rode Into the Sunset,” a free talk in the Humanities Washington speakers bureau series, at 7 p.m. at the North Mason Timberland library in Belfair, WA. Location info here.

Early notice: next Friday, March 15, the members of Framing Pictures convene again at the Northwest Film Forum for another conversation on movies. Join us at 5 p.m.; the event is free. Info here.

Thanks to Smithsonian Journeys and Celebrity Cruises for the wonderful opportunity to gives talks aboard the Celebrity Equinox from Feb. 22 to Mar. 4. The tan is fading, but the memory lingers on.
