Iron Eden (Weekly Links)

Ironing out their issues: Paltrow and Downey

Ironing out their issues: Paltrow and Downey

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

Iron Man Three. “The ravings of a bearded weirdie.”

Eden. “Rarely sets a foot wrong.”

The Reluctant Fundamentalist. “Ahmed, a quick, compact performer, is the main draw here.”

Renoir. “Difficult to deny the chocolate-box allure.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Marcie Sillman about movies that take (or attempt) a nonverbal route; the conversation is introduced by Also Sprach Zarathustra, if you get the drift. It’s archived here.

Next Thursday, May 9, join me for “End of the Trail: How the Western Movie Rode Into the Sunset,” a free talk in the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau program, at the Renton History Museum in Renton, WA. That’s at 5 p.m.; more info on the talk here, and the location here.

Check out two programs of short films at places where I affiliate myself: The Seattle University student film festival happens tonight at 7 at Piggott Auditorium on campus, and the Museum of History and Industry’s “History Is__” competition enjoys its gala awards evening next Saturday, May 11, at MOHAI at 7.
