Wrong Room (Weekly Links)

Jane Levy, Evil Dead

Jane Levy, Evil Dead

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

Evil Dead. “Relentless violence to the human body.”

Leviathan. “A kind of audio-visual sensory spell.”

Room 237. “Amateurish but spirited.”

Wrong. “Lacks anything that might give it an edge.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about the implications of Room 237, the documentary on the crackpot theories surrounding The Shining. It’s archived here.

Join the talkers of Framing Pictures for another session of conversation about film, today (Friday) at the Northwest Film Forum at 5 p.m. The event is free, and topics will include the NWFF’s run of Leviathan, SIFF Uptown’s engagement of Room 237 (and The Shining), and certainly some reminiscing about the late Roger Ebert.

Sunday April 7 join me for “A Feast on Film: How Food Becomes Art in the Movies,” a talk at the Vashon Senior Center at 2 p.m. The event is free, and there’s info about the location here.
