Links to reviews I wrote for the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.
Blue Ruin. “Saulnier trusts his material enough to let the early reels unfold slowly, with very little dialogue, as he sets up his dominoes.”
Neighbors. “Seth Rogen’s need to stand around and riff on bodily functions and sex organs.”
Young & Beautiful. “Places her in a long line of French actresses who practically demand the word ‘enigmatic’ be placed before their names.”
A how-to preview of the Seattle International Film Festival.
At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I talk a little about Jeremy Saulnier’s Blue Ruin and how it works intriguing variations on the revenge movie. Check in here.
And the most recent session of Framing Pictures is being broadcast on the Seattle Channel (regularly channel 21 hereabouts, channel 321 on HD). Check it out tonight at 8:30 p.m. and 3 a.m., Saturday night at 9 p.m. and etc. Schedule here. You should be able to watch it online soon. The talkers are Richard T. Jameson, Bruce Reid, and me, and the subjects include revivals of Orson Welles’ Othello, John Cassavetes’ Love Streams, and the opening of Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive.
