Fiction Club (Weekly Links)

Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club

Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club

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

Dallas Buyers Club. “He’s not about to let go of the bull without a fight.”

Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction. ‘This barely adds up to a movie, but it is a mood: a sad song playing on the jukebox, the bartender making his last call.”

Saturday November 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.

Tuesday November 12, join me at Edmonds Community College for “End of the Trail: How the Western Movie Rode Into the Sunset,” part of the Hazel Miller Conversations in the Humanities series. That’s at 7 p.m.; more info here. You can listen to a YouTube interview on the subject here, or watch below.

Wednesday November 13, let’s all watch McQ together at the Seattle Public Library Central (that is, downtown) branch. The 1974 John Sturges film, starring John Wayne as a Seattle cop, will be screened at the library as part of the “Celluloid Seattle” exhibit at Museum of History & Industry. I’ll introduce the movie at 6:30; more info here.

Next Friday, November 15, the talkers of Framing Pictures convene at the Northwest Film Forum for another session of movie conversation. Topics set for consideration include Claire Denis’ new Bastards and Abdellatif Kechiche’s Cannes-winning Blue Is the Warmest Color – and what you’d like to discuss. See you at 5 p.m. for this free event.
