20 Feet from Disco White House (Weekly Links)

Tatum-Foxx, White House Down

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

White House Down. “The final word in executive-branch fighting skills.”

20 Feet from Stardom. “This is about the foot soldiers.”

The Secret Disco Revolution. “The daffy disco heyday.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday” I talk with Marcie Sillman about the two music docs, 20 Feet from Stardom and The Secret Disco Revolution, as well as remembering two giants of fantasy, Richard Matheson and Ray Harryhausen. The talk is archived here.

Have a good July, all. I will be teaching in the summer program of the Architectural Association in London for much of the month, and look forward to posting while I’m there. Some pre-taped segments at KUOW’s “Weekday,” including bits on 1963 films, recent animation, and the chemistry of movie duos will play while I’m gone, and there’ll be reviews thrown in at Herald/Weekly, too.
