Patience, Prisoners (Weekly Links)

Golshifteh Farahani, a stunning presence in The Patience Stone

Golshifteh Farahani, a stunning presence in The Patience Stone

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

Prisoners. “The way an apparently civilized American town might have strange little pockets where people could simply disappear off the grid.”

The Patience Stone. “Farahani is stunning in every sense.”

Good Ol’ Freda. “She was working for the band before Ringo joined up.”

Ip Man: The Final Fight. “The loftier aspirations of The Grandmaster are nowhere to be seen, but Yau’s storytelling beats turn out to be perfectly enjoyable on their own terms.”

And, there’s a Seattle Weekly piece on the Museum of History & Industry exhibit I was honored to curate, “Celluloid Seattle: A City at the Movies.” Check out Brian Miller’s article here, and come on down to South Lake Union for the show – it has been extended until Dec. 1.

Come up to Port Townsend for the 14th annual Port Townsend Film Festival, which kicks off its three-day run today. Among my duties will be guiding a Q&A with Big Joy: The Adventures of James Broughton filmmakers tonight, and doing the interview with special guest Karen Allen Saturday night. See you in PT?
