Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman: The Babadook
Links to reviews I published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.
The Babadook. “Ignoring the timeworn horror-movie warning about chanting the name of the monster.” (In case of Herald paywall, the Weekly version is here.)
The Sleepwalker. “A northerly chill.” (Weekly version here.)
Point and Shoot. “Maybe each generation gets the Lawrence of Arabia it deserves.” (Weekly version here.)
At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I respond to the PBS “American Masters” profile of Bing Crosby, and ponder the nature of Der Bingle’s stardom; listen here.
And put it on your calendar: The 10th annual Critics Wrap happens at the Frye Art Museum on Thursday, Dec. 18, at 7 p.m. See more info here.
