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

The Theory of Everything. “Catches a frank, worldly view of the way things happen sometimes.” (In case of Herald paywall, Seattle Weekly version here.)

Rosewater. “Irony is the only thing standing between us and madness.” (Weekly link here.)

Camp X-Ray. “Watchable for its minimalist style and its dedicated performances.”

Sunday November 16 I’ll be at the Frye Art Museum presenting “Time as a Character in Contemporary Film,” a look at how filmmakers such as Richard Linklater, Bela Tarr, and Tsai Ming-liang incorporate the idea of Time in their movies. That’s at 2 p.m., and the talk is free. More info here.

Two episodes of the Overlook Podcast to catch up on. In the first, Steve Scher and I talk about Interstellar and other spacey things; listen here. The second is a take on Rosewater; drop in here.
