Life After Sin (This Week’s Movies)

Josh Brolin, ape-like and none too bright, in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Josh Brolin, ape-like and none too bright, in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Links my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. “People are constantly talking about how rough it is and how lethal the people are. They left out one thing: You could also die of boredom here.”

If I Stay. “Most notable for its grimness.” (If Herald paywall is an issue, the Seattle Weekly version is here.)

Alive Inside. “A work of activism, and a beautiful one.” (Weekly version here.)

Life After Beth. “For issues of tone, please consult Seinfeld episodes concerning Jerry’s parents.” (Weekly version here.)

The most recent installment of Framing Pictures is now online and watchable here. In this one I join Richard T. Jameson and Bruce Reid for a conversation about Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, Eric Rohmer’s A Summer’s Tale, and a few confessions on the subject of Guilty Pleasures. The program will be broadcast on the Seattle Channel (often channel 21 hereabouts) at 10 p.m. Friday night, 11 p.m. Saturday night, 8 p.m. Sunday night, and a buncha other times; see the schedule here.

Check the Overlook Podcast for our latest movie-talk here.

I’ve been popping in on KIRO radio’s “Mark Rahner Show” on weekends lately; here’s the link to the most recent session, in which we talk about The Giver and play an exciting round of Focus Group. Before I come on, listen to the folks from Scarecrow Video talk about their Kickstarter campaign, which you can check out here (yes, I appear in the video).
