Drop Strange Jealousy (This Week’s Movies)

James Gandolfini and Tom Hardy: The Drop

James Gandolfini and Tom Hardy: The Drop

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

The Drop. “Not only are Lehane’s underworld denizens unable to escape, it doesn’t even occur to them to imagine escaping.” (In case of Herald paywall, Seattle Weekly version is here.)

Love Is Strange. “It’s one of those sad situations in which everybody means well, but things just aren’t working out.” (Weekly version here.)

Jealousy. “Observation, not manipulation, is Garrel’s primary interest.” (Weekly version here.)

And a fall preview thingie.

Sunday September 14 at 2 p.m. I’ll talk about the contributions of the remarkable Canadian Inuk filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk, director of the 2001 film The Fast Runner. Along with clips of Kunuk’s work, we will screen a half-hour episode from the 1995 Nunavut: Our Land series. This free talk is part of the Frye Art Museum’s Magic Lantern series; more info here.

The Port Townsend Film Festival kicks off on September 19; I’ll be moderating some events during the three-day affair. Special guests this year are John Sayles and Maggie Renzi – check out the lineup here.
