Into the Eyes (This Week’s Movies)

Amy Adams, Big Eyes

Amy Adams, Big Eyes

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

Into the Woods. “Still a bit of a subversive message peeking through.” (In case of Herald paywall, Weekly version here.)

Unbroken. “Plays it straight and old-fashioned, as befits its determined central character.”

The Imitation Game. “The real reason to like this movie is that it’s so diligently pro-weirdo.” (Weekly version here.)

The Gambler. “Skillfully played.”

Big Eyes. “The movie needs a complicating subplot, but there’s nothing else going on.”

At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I talk about three of the year’s notable films: Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin, Jeremy Saulnier’s Blue Ruin, and Richard Linklater’s Boyhood. Give a listen here.

I visited the “Mark Rahner Show” on KIRO radio last week, and we talked about the final episode of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, plus some quick thoughts on The Interview affair. Listen up here.
