DiCaprio, Mulligan in Luhrmann-world Gatsby

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

The Great Gatsby. “Couldn’t shake the feeling that someone on screen was about to break into song.”

Something in the Air. “Sometimes magical.”

Midnight’s Children. “Does catch the bustle of a Rushdie canvas.”

A summer movie preview thingie.

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Marcie Sillman about The Great Gatsby and related problems; the conversation is archived here.

May 16, 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 Olympia Library in Olympia, WA. That’s at 7:30 p.m.; more info on the talk here, and the location here.

Next Friday, May 17, the members of Framing Pictures convene at the Northwest Film Forum for another conversation about what’s happening in the movies these days, including more Gatsby talk. Join us at 5 p.m.; the event is free. More here.
