Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong'o, and Chiwetel Ejiofor: 12 Years a Slave

Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong’o, and Chiwetel Ejiofor: 12 Years a Slave

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

12 Years a Slave. “Has an and-then-this-happened quality appropriate for a memoir written in the stunned aftermath of a nightmare.”

Last Vegas. “It is a measure of their skill that they do not betray a hint of embarrassment or condescension in the course of this lightweight bash.”

About Time. “Curtis is as skillful with deft one-liners and as prone to mawkishness as ever.”

Viola. “You might begin to wish that life really worked like this.”

Tonight I’ll be at the Northwest Film Forum to introduce Viola at its 7 p.m. show. More details here.

This afternoon I can be heard talking to Ross Reynolds, of KUOW’s “The Record,” on the subject of “Celluloid Seattle.” That’s in the noon hour, on 94.9 FM or kuow.org.

Early warning: Next Saturday, Nov. 9, join me at the Bothell Library at 2 p.m. for a free talk on “Celluloid Seattle: A City at the Movies,” the exhibit I curated for the Museum of History & Industry. More info here.
