Viral Homesman Bosses (This Week’s Movies)

Hilary Swank, Tommy Lee Jones: The Homesman

Hilary Swank, Tommy Lee Jones: The Homesman

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

The Homesman. “The real subject is the West itself, the brutality of it, and the price paid for settling it.” (In case of Herald paywall, Seattle Weekly review here.)

Horrible Bosses 2. “This lowbrow series has hit its stride.” (Weekly version here.)

Penguins of Madagascar. “Flightless birds who realize the world isn’t all black-and-white.”

V/H/S: Viral. “Strictly for cultists, but the one good segment suggests a filmmaker ready to burst.” (Weekly version here.)

And there’s a holiday-movie preview thingie, here.

And another piece on The Homesman, this one for Film Comment, here.

Here’s last weekend’s edition of the “Mark Rahner Show,” on KIRO Radio, where we talk about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, and play a round of “Focus Group.”
