Man of Steal, Sightseers East (Weekly Links)

Henry Cavill: Supe in Smallville

Henry Cavill: Supe in Smallville

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

Man of Steel. “Seriously damaged by the dullness at its center.”

The East. “Marling is serious enough to be unnerving.”

Sightseers. “One of the film’s most amusing strokes is the suggestion that these two lunatics might actually be in love.”

We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks. “Arrives while its story is in midstream.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Marcie Sillman about Man of Steel, The Kings of Summer, and our expectations for summer movies. The conversation is archived here.

Thursday, June 20, I’ll be in Port Townsend, WA, giving a talk called “Hope in Hard Times,” a look at how a politically radical spirit found its way into Hollywood films in the early 1930s. The event begins at 7 p.m., is sponsored by the Jefferson County Historical Society, and held at the Port Townsend city council chamber. More info here.

Heads up for next Friday: The members of Framing Pictures convene at 5 p.m. at the Northwest Film Forum for another conversation about movies. The event is free; check in with our Facebook page and the NWFF site.
