Beauty Lie Frozen (Weekly Links)

Anna gives Kristoff the cold shoulder: Frozen.

Anna gives Kristoff the cold shoulder: Frozen.

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

Frozen. “This time, the sisters are doing it for themselves.”

Oldboy. “The plot is generally followed but the edges are smoother.”

Philomena. “Succeeds in distinguishing itself from the average weepie.”

Homefront. “The movie isn’t Tennessee Williams material, even if James Franco plays it that way.”

The Great Beauty. “I liked the movie’s visual feast, but I wasn’t entirely convinced about the soul-searching.”

Camille Claudel 1915. “Perhaps the most adventurous movie star alive right now.”

The Armstrong Lie. “A portrait of an extremely strange man.”

Sunday, Dec. 1, I’ll be giving a couple of curator tours during the final day of “Celluloid Seattle” at the Museum of History & Industry. Times are 11 and 1. Check the MOHAI website for updates. Even if you can’t make the tour, come see the show in its final days!

And while you’re at MOHAI, pick up a new catalog for the exhibit. It looks like this:
