Like Incredible Stoker (Weekly Links)

Carell and Wilde, Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Carell and Wilde, Incredible Burt Wonderstone

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

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. “Truly glorious bad-dye wig.”

Stoker. “Fun if you like to watch a director get his freak on.”

Like Someone in Love. “Absolute authority.”

The Gatekeepers. “Blunt.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about what it means when we say Stoker is a really directed film; the conversation is archived here.

Join the critics of Framing Pictures today when we convene for another monthly session at the Northwest Film Forum on Seattle’s Capitol Hill. The event is at 5 p.m., and free; our subjects will include some imminent Seattle openings and the awesome legacy of Fritz Lang. More details here.

Sunday afternoon, drop by the Frye Art Museum for a free showing of Que Viva Mexico!, the compilation of footage from Sergei Eisenstein’s never-completed North American sojourn. I’ll introduce the film and discuss a bit. More info here.

“Celluloid Seattle: A City at the Movies” continues its residence at the Museum of History and Industry. Drop by for a visit one of these days.

At What a Feeling!, the week of Eighties movie reviews has featured a series of qualified titles. The latest added: Disney’s The Great Mouse Detective, Howard Deutch’s The Great Outdoors, and John Flynn’s Best Seller.
