Links to reviews I wrote this week for the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.
Into the Storm. “Sadly, the mayhem is periodically interrupted by scenes of people talking, although I use the terms ‘people’ and ‘talking’ loosely.”
Magic in the Moonlight. “Allen’s job these days is creating fantasies that lead to some kind of truth.”
At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I talk about the levels of magic moonlit in Woody Allen’s latest film. Listen here.
Thursday August 14, join us for a “Summer at SAM” event at the Olympic Sculpture Park. At the “Art Hit Tour” at 6:30 my wife and I will lead a stroll as we cover two aspects of the park: its cinematic possibilities and ecological awareness. The event is free and there’s lots of other stuff going on to sample. Read more about that night and the other “Summer at SAM” events here. Check the environmental blog Present Occupant here.
