Furious Hangover Ha (Weekly Links)

Furious femme fighting: Carano and Rodriguez in an F&F smackdown

Furious femme fighting: Carano and Rodriguez in an F&F smackdown

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

The Hangover III. “Less aggressively nasty than the last film.”

Fast & Furious 6. “A supercharged appetite for wild action.”

Frances Ha. “Succeeds on its genuinely inventive rat-a-tat rhythm and Gerwig’s unpredictable delivery.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Marcie Sillman (and callers) about the self-referential Star Trek Into Darkness, and whether it qualifies as a movie. The talk is archived here.

Wednesday, May 29, join me for “A Feast on Film: How Food Becomes Art at the Movies,” at 7 p.m. at the Lake Hills Library in Bellevue, WA, in which we speak of films that capture the transformative glory of cooking and eating. The talk is free.

Last month’s “History Cafe” session at Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry is now online. I talk with longtime Seattle do-everything film critic/editor/teacher/programmer Richard T. Jameson about some of the roots of the city’s movie arthouse scene; check out the conversation here.

And the exhibit I curated for MOHAI, “Celluloid Seattle,” is still up and running. The website is here; you can read an appreciation of the exhibit from City Arts magazine here.
