Engaging newcomer Blake Rayne, embracing Seventies Elvis: The Identical
Links to reviews I wrote this week published in the Herald and Seattle Weekly.
The Identical. “An unexpectedly engaging lead turn by a new performer.” (In case of Herald paywall, here’s the link to Seattle Weekly version.)
The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears. “A world of saturated colors, sexed-up violence, and utterly incomprehensible storytelling.” (Weekly version here.)
A Letter to Momo. “Okiura revs it up for the big climax, a genuinely eyeball-dazzling extravaganza.” (Weekly version here.)
Thursday night September 11, I’ll be leading the second part of a workshop at the Northwest Film Forum called “Cinematic Space and Sound.” This part concentrates on masters of sound, namely Akira Kurosawa and Robert Bresson. More information here.
The Overlook Podcast finds Steve Scher and me sitting in the Z’s at Scarecrow Video, having an honest-to-gosh bull session that begins with a contemplation of large cinematic spaces and quickly turns into philosophies of life. You can check in here, but set aside some time.
