The Oblivion Disconnect Company (Weekly Links)

Cruising the post-apocalypse: Oblivion.

Cruising the post-apocalypse: Oblivion.

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

Oblivion. “Pensive and deeply felt, and contains one of Cruise’s best performances.”

Disconnect. “Earnest warnings.”

The Company You Keep. “Workmanlike approach.”

Antiviral. “The ultimate satisfaction for obsessed fans.”

My last review for the Seattle Weekly ran in 1981. After a brief pause to collect myself, I am now represented again in that publication, thanks to the recent acquisition of the Herald by the same publisher that owns the Weekly. So some of my reviews will now appear in both places – including, this week, The Company You Keep and Disconnect. So that’s what that’s about.

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about sci-fi large (Oblivion) and small (Upstream Color, Antiviral), and some listeners weigh in with their thoughts. The conversation is archived here.

Join me Saturday afternoon, April 20, at 1 p.m., for a free talk: “A Feast on Film: How Food Becomes Art in the Movies,” a look at how cinema can transform food into an art form. That’s at the Newport Way Library in Bellevue, WA; more info here.

Sunday afternoon, April 21, come by the Frye Art Museum for a free event in the Magic Lantern series. We’ll screen Mikhail Kalatozov’s 1964 film I Am Cuba at 2 p.m.; I’ll introduce the movie. More info here.
