Tilda Swinton jumps the tracks: Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer

Tilda Swinton jumps the tracks: Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer

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

Snowpiercer. “Let me state that I have no factual basis for believing that a train could stay in continuous motion across a globe-girdling circuit of track for almost two decades, nor that the people on board could sustain themselves and their brutal caste system under such circumstances. But for 124 minutes of loco-motion, I had no problem buying it at all.”

A Coffee in Berlin. “A nicely amusing through-line.”

The Sacrament. “Doesn’t have much new to add to the real-life Jonestown story.”

Steve Scher and I used to talk on the radio every week; now we podcast. Our latest installment of the Overlook responds to a Slate article scolding grown-ups for reading Young Adult books. Check in to the Overlook here.
