Upstream Trance (Weekly Links)

Chadwick Boseman bats for Jackie Robinson: 42

Chadwick Boseman bats for Jackie Robinson: 42

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

42. “Compelling.”

Trance. “Down and dirty and faintly ridiculous, and also pretty fun to watch.”

Upstream Color. “Hang on to your armrest, or let yourself dissolve into the oneness of the universe.”

Starbuck. “Full of ‘Why didn’t they just do this?’ moments.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about Brian Helgeland’s 42, and a few other baseball pictures. The conversation is archived here.

Sunday April 14 at 2 p.m., I’ll be giving a talk for the King County Library System called “A Feast on Film: How Food Becomes Art in Movies,”  at the Woodinville Library; it’s free. In this talk illustrated with clips, we’ll look at movies that transform the breaking of bread into an art, and how film conspires with that.

Thursday April 18, I engage in conversation with former Film Comment editor (and longtime Seattle do-everything critic/programmer/teacher) Richard T. Jameson at the Museum of History and Industry for a “History Cafe” session on the subject, generally speaking, of how Seattle’s movie scene evolved from the early arthouse days of the Sixties. The event, which is related to the MOHAI “Celluloid Seattle” exhibit I curated, is free, and begins at 7; more info here.
