Guest Tombstones (This Week’s Reviews)

Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy: The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them

Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy: The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them

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

The Guest. “Whatever Adam Wingard is drinking, please keep ’em coming.” (In case of Herald paywall, see the Weekly version.)

A Walk Among the Tombstones. “A cut above Neeson’s pulpier outings.”

My Old Lady. “If you’re going to have people running off at the mouth, you could do worse than this hyper-eloquent trio.” (Weekly version.)

The Disapperance of Eleanor Rigby: Them. “An earnest disposition.” (Weekly version.)

Life of Crime. “Dialed-down and low-rent.” (Weekly version.)

Check the Overlook Podcast for the latest conversations on film; we have two this week. Listen here as Steve Scher and I consider The Drop and The Guest. Then stick around to hear our musings on the career of John Sayles, this weekend’s special guest at the Port Townsend Film Festival.

I’ll be at the Port Townsend Film Festival (special guests John Sayles and Maggie Renzi) this weekend for a variety of things, including an open-to-the-public interview with Sayles at Port Townsend High School at 1:30 today (Friday) and the “Evening With” event Saturday night at 6:30, an interview with Sayles following a screening of Lone Star.
