Like Winter’s Night (Weekly Links)

Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay; Everything stupid is connected by the light: Winter's Tale

Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, temporarily without the flying white horse in Winter’s Tale: Everything stupid is connected by the light

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

Winter’s Tale. “Like enduring a weekend at a quasi-religious camp where everyone smiles as vapidly as our doomed, brave heroine.”

About Last Night. “Don’t be surprised if Kevin Hart and Regina Hall graduate to another movie.”

Like Father, Like Son. “Tabloid story, meditative treatment: Director Hirokazu Kore-eda has been in this territory before.”

Sunday, Feb. 16, come up to Port Townsend, WA, for a talk in the Clemente Eclectic Lecture series. I’ll be going on about “A Feast on Film: How Food Becomes Art in the Movies,” in which we look at foodie classics such as Babette’s Feast and Eat Drink Man Woman for examples of culinary/cinematic transcendence. Check the details here.

My book on Frankenstein is now available and can be ordered from your preferred book dealer. Here is a link to the Columbia University Press site. Yes, you will be hearing more about this.
